#4136389 Game Demos at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo

Robot Zed
Atari 2600
by Chris Spry (Sprybug)

One robot remains in the force and it's up to you rescue your fallen robot colleagues.  You control the last Robot, Robot Zed.  In this demo, you run through a rogue-like, horizontally scrolling base level to find and locate one of the fallen robots, to take back to your base for repairs, so you can use their abilities in future levels.  But to find your buddy, you must run through the base and battle the enemy's own robot force.  
There are four different robots in total.  The standard robot will sometimes supply you with energy when defeated.  The other three robots will give you their power once defeated.  After you gather their power you can change with down and jump to cycle through your collected powers to pick.  Be careful with how much you use them.  Every time you use a special power, it'll drain your power tank.  Once you run out, you will return back to normal power until you gather more power capsules from those three special enemies.  
Good luck in your quest and don't forget to have fun!

Chaotic Grill
Atari 2600
by Philip Blackman

Chaotic Grill is an attempt to bring a new version of the arcade classic BurgerTime to the Atari 2600.
With a grill in the midst of chaos, you control Pete the chef to build burgers for eagerly awaiting customers.  Sounds like an easy job, right?  Well it would be if it weren't for some other pesky ingredients trying to interfere with your burger assembly line.  It's chaos on the grill.  But you can manage, right?

Tyre Trax
Atari 2600
by Lewis Hill

Get set for the race of your life! With Tyre Trax MTB you are about to  embark on a daredevil race across challenging terrain and weather conditions. Are you up to the challenge? Oil your chain, test your brakes and grab your helmet, happy trails!
Tyre Trax MTB is a twitch / reaction racer. The aim of the game is to complete each course in the shortest possible time, avoiding the obstacles and reaching the GOAL! line. Your time is shown at the bottom of the screen. There are four unique course settings : Daytime, Sunset, Winter and Night, each with its own challenges and perils. Avoid the water or you will be sleeping with the fishes!
Just like riding a real bike, you will need to get the feel of the controls in Tyre Trax. Don’t worry about falling off, even at the slowest speed your rider will stay in the saddle. The game is mastered by learning the courses and learning where best to position your bike to avoid the next set of obstacles. If you hit an obstacle you will slow down, costing you precious time.

#4136356 New Releases from AtariAge at 2018 PRGE!

Posted by Albert on Yesterday, 6:56 AM

Sorry to bother Al, I know Songbird offers an option for most of their games in clear carts, I was wondering if any copies of Loopz at PRGE might be in clear cart?  I'm a sucker for 'em. = )


No, I only have gray shells for Loopz at PRGE. 



#4135182 Homebrew Boxes

Posted by Albert on Tue Oct 16, 2018 6:55 PM

Wall Jump Ninja came with a box initially, and a small number of boxes were made for Jump VCS when that came out.  None of the others have had boxes made for them.  I will have more Wall Jump Ninja boxes after PRGE, and I can get more made for Jump VCS as well.

Atari 2600
by János Zoltán Fehér
Plague is about a doctor of a less hopeful age as the fatal illness spread and brought disease to the lands, searching for ingredients for the medicine that could save people.

Your main goal in the game is to progress from screen to screen, avoid hazards and collect the shiny herbs that stand out from the dark environment. Remember, the doctor can't fight back. If you get injured, you can use one of the collected herbs to heal yourself, but that would reduce the chance to find the useful combination in the last segment.

The game contains several unique rooms and puzzles, a boss fight and a little pharmacy.

Atari 2600
by Óscar Toledo G. (nanochess)

Welcome to the nature! Guide Bongy the Aardvark in its quest for the most delicious ants hidden in the earth. The Bongy's tongue is pretty sensitive and you should be careful when searching in the ants' catacombs, because if ants touch the body of your tongue then Bongy will lose a life.
The most delicious ants, the queen ants, are deep in the chambers of catacombs, but watch out, as there are poisonous worms that should be eaten only from the back.  And in the night there can appear deadly spiders that you should prevent from touching the tip of your tongue.
You can choose your starting level if you're an experienced player, number of starting lives, and when you receive a bonus life.  You can also select your playing mode from Novice, Easy, Normal, Hard and Expert.
Develop a strategy to enter the anthill, as the game gets progressively harder as you advance! This addictive game takes the Atari 2600 hardware to its limits in this 32K game with extra RAM.
Game programmed by the highly-respected developers Oscar Toledo G. (nanochess, author of Space Raid) and Thomas Jentszch (Thrust/Cave 1K). Artwork and graphics by cartoonist Nathan Strum.

Keep politics out of this discussion, or any discussions on AtariAge, thanks. 

#4129167 will there be more Atarivox + ?

Posted by Albert on Sun Oct 7, 2018 6:51 PM

Hi Albert, I was watching a Youtube video in which it was said that Atarivox+ has trouble with the new Wizard or Wor. I think I bought mine about 2 years ago. Does that mean my unit may have trouble with the new game? Thanks.


We're working on it.  :)

I thinking those are re-useable since they are not expo specific! 


That is intentional.  :)
