Game Boy work.

So after about 3 weeks, I went back and worked on Save the Puppies. Today's task was to attempt to make a game over screen with a little tune. Here is the end result: I still have lots of room left to still keep it at 32k. Since everything else is completed, I can use the extra room to store level designs, as well as extra tarantula behavior. I also made it so that if you press Start at the game over screen, you'll go straight to a new game. I never did see my reasoning of going

August 23 happenings.

So the internet quit working yesterday. I decided to go to sleep at about 1 p.m. since it's no fun being without the internet. I woke up at 4 a.m. and the internet came back an hour later. I got Klax and a 6-button Genesis controller in the mail while I was asleep. It's hard to tell the Klax designs apart on a Game Boy. After testing my 6-button Genesis controller (I can now do God Mode in 32X Doom.) I went to work on beginning the boss in HERTS3 for Game Gear. I should try Klax on my

Beautiful burgers

It's not even half way through morning and I've spent about 90 minutes today trying to beautify my Game Gear game. For it being a color portable, it sure doesn't have that many games. Game Boy has the better library IMHO, even though it's in black and white. Anyway, I made it so when I turn the screen off it is black instead of a reddish purple. I also made the nachos and pepperoni slices behave like homing missiles, following you and moving left at the same time. The onion rings don't do this,

Atari 8bit Super Reversion Reversi game

Atari 8bit Super Reversion Reversi game

SupeReversion   This is a Reversi game I got from some magazine a while back. It's probably one of the best looking Reversi games on any 8-bit computer with it's 3-D style board. I made some modifications such as changed how the pointer works, displays in several random colors, boots from Altirra disk and improved the game play a bit. To play press Option or Select to change player then Start key to start. There is a flashing square you move in 4 directions to the spot where

A great way to waste time

Let's say you are tired of video games. Then what is a great way to pass the time? Why, making and solving crosswords of course. My grandma got me started and hooked on them. After a few, I decided to try to make some. Not only did I get hooked on solving them, I also got hooked on making them. I like the odd grid shapes of the TV Guide crosswords from their inception to around 1990 when they stopped being so odd and began to "normalize". I began to make weird grid designs, odd placement of blac

Later Facebook

Don't know why, but Facebook had taken to censoring my comments.   Comment about Liftoff and some awesome bookmarks to go with it       In reply to a "wind turbines aren't green" showing buried blades I posted a comment on how fiberglass recycling has only recently been possible:     Comment about covid delaying the ATSC 3.0 (next gen TV broadcasts, up to 4K) rollout in Houston. I've also noticed mentioning COVID in any way tends to get a

August 19 happenings.

Most of today was spent sleeping. I went to sleep at around 7 a.m. Didn't get up until at least 8 p.m. Then I worked a little bit on Jack and the Beanstalk, making the code simpler. The only thing I added were stairs on the second floor of the castle, which are to lead to the third floor. I think the total number of rooms I'll have in the castle is 56.   I first thought the way the code to hide the key would work would be to get a random number to get a room number and put it in there.

9 AtariAge & Hozer

9 AtariAge & Hozer

2 maybe 3 AA's VS 6 Hozer. Hozer wins... These are all proto's, homebrew or repro but so valuable to me. Tried to find the reproducer of RSC but never found him or her. Maybe its An AtariAge but with a new label, i don't care, it Costed me about $30 and still very happy with it. Also happy with harem which i bought in the usa, the box in germany and manual i made myself... 
9 less rare cases

9 less rare cases

Somewhat less rare cases but still pretty odd titles. Bought dishaster without a label and broken cart for 11$ and repainted, copy-pasted etc almost from zero... I was so Proud of this, still cart is broken bit the game works. Same as tanzende teller. Most valuables are boing and glib. Dice doesn't have a front label ( seems all panda's miss a front) so i picture this from the side...    
9 Rare Cases

9 Rare Cases

I called this rare but these are not more special than part two of the mixed zone. Offcourse my most valuable is x-man which i also own a manual and box and laser-loop which is the expensive version of z-tack of bomb (it's also packed with a bomb case). Also happy with Galactic (condor attack) and Galaxy Defender (nexar). Well basically i am happy with all but these were never bought as quantitive addition...     
 

Breath of the Wild - finished

After 135 hours of playing Breath of the Wild I have defeated Ganon and finished (but not completed*) the game.  It was a lot of fun, but I'm not planning on replaying it in the near future and I certainly have no desire to buy the DLC and play through a modified version of the game.     One of the parts of BOTW I loved is Zelda's story revealed through the memories and her and her Father's diaries.  Unlike the Champions who chose to be warriors and then accepted the role of Champion,

9 Coleco, CBS, Technovision & Mattel

9 Coleco, CBS, Technovision & Mattel

The last 3 CBS, 2 coleco, 2 very rare Technovision (i think) and 2 cheap Mattel's because they never work on my junior, happily i do own a Retron77 where Both games gladly work. Not sure if they are really cheap but i bought Them relatively cheap so i guess i am correct... Long story short, the last blast of my collection... What follows are single Carts, prototypes, homebrew(s) and well... Others...  PS: notes now Both Mattel's are almost notn readable but these are frogs and flies and koo
9 CommaVid, Konami & Epyx

9 CommaVid, Konami & Epyx

It looks like we entered the area of rare and expensive Atari games which are difficult to collect but that is only true for CommaVid. The other 2 are completed, Konami with 2 restored labels and Epyx with even 3 replaced new labels. Very proud of these... Lot of work!  
9 Spectravision & Bitcorp

9 Spectravision & Bitcorp

3x Bitcorp but i am not always positively sure this is the case. There are a lot of different publishers out there for mostly the same games. Anyhoe, i call Them Bitcorp and next to 6 spectra's these are a Nice addition To my everlasting growing collection...
9 Taiwan & Telesys

9 Taiwan & Telesys

4x Taiwan TP-Series, one of those Many Taiwanese bootleg game series... A Friend once told me these were sunteks, i thought for a long time these were Ariola's and now i know the world of Atari is more than Just a footnote in gaming history. Still learning Every Day... TP-series... Ohh and Telesys offcourse...    
9 Apollo & Sancho

9 Apollo & Sancho

Sancho and Apollo, not the best quality games but i like the labels on Both and i am a gamer but for sure a collector so i am happy with these... Shark attack has been replaced, there was a damaged label with a shark on it but a different name...     
9 Data Age & Mythicon

9 Data Age & Mythicon

Maybe the worst game ever with the most beautiful label ever, sorcerer! However, i even don't think the game is that worse, have seen worser (see top right in same pic)... I am very fond of having the Total collection of the Mythicon games    
9 SEGA & US Games

9 SEGA & US Games

2 Sega's and 7 Usg's... I do like the White usgames more than the black i think... Even if the blacks are nicer, maybe because of the cartoon images on the whites... still Need to restore name this game thou...     
 

Staircases

I haven't been sleeping much. I hate sleep. It's so boring laying there waiting for at least a half-hour. My mind keeps thinking of stuff I'd like to do and rather be doing. I only got 6 hours of sleep because of this. I went to work on Jack and the Beanstalk. I added in the stairs. All you have to do to use them is touch them. For example, touching these stairs: will get Jack to the second floor: If Jack touches these stairs, he'll go back to the first floor. Jac
