Brickdown / Shooting Gallery, APF, 1978



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?

Although MESS still lists the APF 1000 as "not working", I've been able to play all games so far, except for the built-in one. If you're still into playing these games, just download the latest version of MESS, the APF 1000's BIOS, and the games here:




Well, holy crap! That's good to know. Even more than a decade later it's good to know.
