Home Brew Desires #1

blog-0413299001555659235.jpg

OK, another series within' my Blog here. So sue me (no, don't do that). There are so many Home Brews, Hacks, and Reproductions that I keep running across that I don't own for my collection. I want physical copies of these games but they seem to no longer be available. How have I discovered these no-longer available gems? Well, there are several ways actually.



  • Youtube Play Videos
  • Submitted for voting at http://highscore.com
  • Internet Searches
  • Pre-Loaded into my current emulator, EMU7800. I downloaded it for FREE at the Miscrosoft Store. While there was one 1 Home Brew for the 2600 (Oystron), there are many for the 7800. Included some Prototypes as well.


I'll start off with 4 games that I wish to own.

Game: Lasercade
System: Atari 2600/VCS
Type: Prototype Reproduction (20th Century Fox)
Programmer: Lee Actor

A 3-D shooting gallery. Blast the targets before the time expires, but be sure to avoid hitting the rotating mirrors or you may just be your worst enemy and blast yourself.

Originally designed by 20th Century Fox, Lasercade was eventually released at the 2007 Classic Gaming Expo, complete with a unique label, box and instructions. I found it listed at Good Deal Games as Sold Out!



Game: Plutos
System: Atari 7800 ProSystem
Developer: Tynesoft
Type: Prototype Reproduction
Genre: Shoot 'em Up - Vertical Scrolling

This is a good shooter for the system, so naturally I want a physical copy.

Game: Santa Simon
System: Atari 7800 ProSystem
Type: Home Brew
Publisher: Atari Age
Released: 2006
Programmer: Matthias Luedtke

This Holiday take on the classic Simon game was one of many Home Brews for the 7800 that was Pre-Loaded into version 2.2 of EMU7800. This could be re-released as one game on a Holiday Multi-cart. My current best score is 14 (via emulation of course), although the current World Records at http://highscore.com are 20 (on actual hardware), and 22 via emulation (held by S.BAZ).



Game: Sirius
System: Atari 7800 ProSystem
Developer: Tynesoft
Type: Prototype Reproduction
Genre: Shoot 'em Up - Horizontal Scrolling

I have the finished game in EMU7800, but I want a physical copy.
