Brickdown / Shooting Gallery, APF, 1978 - only NOT
My copy of this cart wouldn't work. Grr. This is a lesson that reminds me I need to test these things as soon as I get them. The seller on ebay had said it worked. I'm thinking he made a mistake, like he did when he said that photocopies of the instructions were included. Grr.
If anyone can lend/rent me theirs, I'll pay shipping both ways, take really good care of it and have it back to you within a day or two. In fact, I'm still looking for a half dozen of these carts to chronogame. Since this system is not emulated, (nor are the cart roms dumped) I'm relying on ebay or anyone who can loan/rent/sell me them. PM me please. I'll still need to play the following after I get through the ones I have:
Pinball / Dungeon Hunt <-- first D&D type game on a console, I assume.
Backgammon <-- Okay, not really excited about this one, but still.
Boxing <-- first time for boxing on a console
Brickdown <--for reasons explained above
Casino I <--Again, not too excited about it, but I'm trying to play as many as possible
Space Destroyers <-- I heard this one was actually pretty good so I really want to play it. More often than not, I play the good ones about 20 minutes longer than I play the bad ones.
UFO <---interested in the gameplay for this one, too.
I think I'd be much less interested in playing these if there were a nice description of these games and their gameplay anywhere on the internet, BUT there isn't, so my curiosity is like a ravenous beast.
HEY! I just had another idea. If you have any of these and aren't willing to rent/lend/sell them to me (which is cool, I completely understand) could you just write me telling me what they're like? Maybe take some screenshots? Please! Chronogaming needs you!
Next entry is Bowling / Micro Match-up which should be later today since this entry doesn't really count as an entry, you know?
