  1. I played Root Beer Tapper on Colecovision today.


    Geez! This level lags because the background animates.



    It would be wiser to not animate the background and the gameplay won't suffer.

      It's a real missed opportunity on the Colecovision. Not a very good effort.

    3. eddhell


      I always felt the Coleco was clunky feeling in controller response and not well refined system overall - just rushed out to compete in the video console wars, the only thing that was better than others were some of the graphic abilities

      let's test my theory:  Drop a Coleco and 2600 from a second-story balcony, set remains on fire for 60 seconds, dowse with bucket of water, let dry outside for 72 hours, then tell me which one still works.

  3. Why Outlook always put emails from https://www.gamesthatwerent.com/

    into Trash?


    This website rocks.



    The Games That Weren't is not banned in the first place.

      I believe there are ways that you can whitelist certain email addresses, training the mail server/client to not declassify them.

  4. Pac-Kong


    1. HDN


      I remember Pac-Kong. It's a German game, I think. Absolutely abysmal.

    2. Serguei2


      At least, I managed to complete level 1.

    3. pacman000


      I always assumed it was a pirate version of Donkey Kong, but it looks original:



      And Abysmal. What's with that thing flickering around the screen? Or is that more than one thing?

    A rare game?

    3. Serguei2


      This game was available in Canada under this name: Spider-Maze:

      No, but Donkey-Man is.

  6. Bubsy Collab


    1. doctorclu


      Ok, Bubsy collab on what?

    2. Serguei2


      I added more details.

  7. From my first computer to today, I always play games from joysticks than keyboards.



    1. Rogerpoco


      I'm the same, but I totally respect people that can play well with a keyboard.

      I have the TG W/R on MAME Burgertime, used an X-Arcade with aftermarket 4-way sticks, very representative of the "real feel", but the Guy I beat, my Friend and Mentor J.D. Lowe, played his game on a keyboard, which friggin boggles me, amazing!!!

  8. Bring classic FPS into a new level:


    1. MrMaddog


      I use GZDoom for playing Doom mods, but in b4 purists cry about the lack of pixels and too much framerates....


  9. Winter:


    1. carlsson


      All hail the Golf stream, for as long as it lasts. It hopefully lets me enjoy a few weeks more before there is snow.

    2. GoldLeader


      Snow days here...Luckily lining up with  my days off!   I'm staying in,  but I need to go finish shoveling my driveway...

  10. Playdate more interesting than Amico.


    1. Hwlngmad


      It definitely is more intriguing imo.  I look forward to seeing some reviews and/or walkthroughs of the device once it is released.

    2. Serguei2


      If this video is true, Doom on playdate is better than snes or Duke Nukem 3D on game.com

  11. Coco and the evil robots & high score Boulder Dash / Popeye



  12. Upcoming consoles:


  13. Bell console stopped recording Star Trek lower decks 2 minutes before the ending. LOL

  14. Still working on Coco and the evil robots with sound added.


    Don't hold your breath, it's not for today.

    1. Kiwi


      Just a shot in the dark, is getput.lib, cvlib.lib and comp.lib in the folder with cci3.exe?

      Make sure that coleco.h getput.h and comp.h are in C:\Program Files (x86)\SDCC\include

  15. Poor classic machines


    1. jaybird3rd


      I have a philosophy when it comes to modding vintage computers and consoles: any mod installed must be 100% reversible.  Any parts that are removed or replaced are retained (unless they're bad), and I don't drill holes in the case or make any other irreversible cosmetic alterations.

  16. Why do I keep watching Star Trek: lower decks?


    Maybe it's fun somehow.

    1. Shawn


      Cause it's awesome!

    2. Swami


      It does fit in strange with the CBS All Access Star Trek anthology advertisements.

  17. About charging stations


  18. Minecraft (hardcore level)



  19. Quake: part 2


  20. I played Quake today.


    And I'm going to find all secrets.

  21. Jungle Hunt on Atari 2600.


    1. Joe C.

      Joe C.

      Floyd of the Jungle!

  22. Jungle must be polluted.


  23. Minecraft 1.16: the cheat update:


    1. JeremiahK


      Whenever I hear the weather guy on talk radio, and he says "There'll be another update in 15 minutes" I hear "Nether update"

  24. I watched Star Trek: lower decks 3rd episode.


    It was good.

    1. CaptainCanadian


      At this point, the bar is quite low. 

  25. My Super Card SD for Gameboy Advance arrived today.
