#3896331 AtGames Fall 2017 Flashback and Portable Lineup

Received my copy of the book today.  I have to say if you like flashback units, then this book lives up to it's name "the essential companion".  I preordered for about $13 which is a great price.  It looks to me like it's a well thought out, well designed and written book.  Lots of attention to detail.  Great job!




#3896260 Jr. Pac-Man review for Intellivision

Posted by Gray Defender on Wed Nov 22, 2017 9:43 PM

Issue: Pink box on maze

 

I tested three other intellivisions (two player mode, fast jr) and came up with the following results:

 

Sylvania model - Pink box shows up right away

Sears video arcade - Pink box shows up right away

Mattel model - no pink box, however, I was able to reproduce the premature level completion bug.

 

Also one thing I didnt realize, the bug which allows Junior to go through a ghost can also happen when blue time is active (sylvania model).

 

I have a few Mattel Intys but they have video artifacts unrelated to Jr. Pacman.  Does anyone know anyone that might be able to repair?

 

Anyhow, I feel like a game tester lol...

Here is my review of Jr. Pac-Man for Intellivision.  I am curious to know what you think good or bad.  Either way I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving holiday!

Thanks guys.  It helps having the inside advantage so to speak with having great open communication with the games developer.

Super Cobra Arcade is a huge upgrade over the recently released Scramble for the Atari 2600.  It's super fun and challenging!

#3840917 "Space Game" WIP

Your game is shaping up to be awesome.   I does seem to remind me a little bit of a few different games like megamania or demon attack.   I don't see any problem with it being named Space Game.   I love the title screen and music, sort of reminds me of the old Prince of Persia theme song.  As has been mentioned the intermissions are a nice touch as well.  There also appears to be an intermission mini-game and intermission music.  I love the star field simulation which precedes the wave starts.  I have yet to learn all the power ups, which is part of the fun, to know which ones are the best ones.  I love the random enemy movements.  Lots of attention to detail.

#3797198 E.T. is awesome

Excerpt from my YT review:
 

"The games programmer, Howard Scott Warshaw, was impressively able to design, program, get sign off from Steven Spielberg on the completed project, all in a time span of just five weeks.  It contained the first sanctioned video game Easter egg, meaning permission was granted before inserting it into the game. This game also contains one of the earliest examples of in game product placements, Reese's pieces.  ET is a single player game.

 

I am pretty sure I received this game for Christmas that year.  At the time it really didn’t matter to me how good or bad the game was, I had the ET game and I was a happy camper.  Atari produced over five million copies of this game"
