  1. 49.0, Normal, no cheats. Route I've been using - Collect the armour to the left Walk to first room, shoot the guy Turn right, shoot the next guy, but that's the last one I bother to kill. Run forwards, get the key, run back to the first room, turn right, then left, then keep forwards to the end. Definitely room for improvement with my movement - this clunky Atari mouse wasnt built with this game in mind - and it's possible to clip walls in useful places too Surely somebody can beat me??

  2. Just got round to playing, I love it and can't wait to play more of it. Still need to find all the secrets and beat the hardest difficulty. Completely distracted me from re-learning STOS this weekend Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  3. I thought I answered you sorry, it's an 1040 STE, which us exactly what teenage me would have really wanted Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  4. More than likely Demos, but some games are likely, and I'm interested to learn about GEM apps, but I don't have any ideas of what to create yet. Just watched FirST Love on it, was waiting for the hardware Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  5. Greetings, thought I'd share my latest project, I hope you like it? I'm really pleased to be back in the Atari camp. I've lurked here for years. Mainly in the Coleco sub forum, which is oddly the most active place to talk Coleco outside of social media sites (booo) Looking forward to revisiting old games, but mainly I want to code this beast. Recently whet my appetite learning some Z80, but time to crank it up a level. I'll no doubt be back asking questions Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  6. Hello, I registered for the site and submitted a score, however I'm not able to log in again now I've lost that initial cookie. Was kind of hoping I could find an admin on here as it's pretty hard to contact them without being able to log in. Anybody know who could help me? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  7. Hello! This all sounds very likely. Telegames shipped games in all sorts of boxes, the original run would include a normal cardboard box but they would frequently use those red or green plastic clamshells when they ran out, with a photocopied cover and manual. I don't know if anyone has ever compiled a list of verified box variants to check this for sure, but I'm confident you have a genuine box that the game left Telegames inside off, although it's not the original cardboard one that collectors often prefer.

  8. How long do I have to get an order in for a classic? Is there a cut off date or number? I need to buy a Pheonix, and some of those power adapters, it's an expensive time right now! Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah it must be people that can't afford it now but do want one. I only recently got my Coleco fully working properly but the Pheonix is too daft too pass up. At some point I'm gonna want an SD reader and an SGM, so may as well get this. Real shame about the Kickstarter, as I think with more time or more publicity it could have made it. I feel the overall complaints from people were the market is awash with NES mini cash ins, and things like the At Games controversy and of course the Chameleon still fresh in people's minds, really hurt the project. Still, looking forward to owning one regardless. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  10. Looks like there is a new pledger in for 10, which would push it up a bit. Does seem like a decent jump in the number if backers as well though. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  11. Just upped my pledge from a game, to a console with boxed game Is it me or is there a last minute upsurge going on? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  12. Like the guy who says he could build his own from scratch for $50.. I was tempted to argue with him, but I don't have the energy right now. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  13. I added one, direct reply to Pat's own pinned comment Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  14. https://youtu.be/OUWlV3JwKy8 We got a video from Pat - neat. Fingers crossed it reaches a few more people Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  15. Pretty strong recommendation from John there. Hope it pulls in the pledges. Saw Metal Jesus talking about it on Twitter today as well. Really hope this funds Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  16. Is there a video of the Sydney Hunter game? I'd like to help out, but can't commit the cash to the console atm, but would be interested in just the game. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  17. Ok so I would guess licensed. It's missing the familiar silver label so I never clocked it as theirs. Was there anybody else doing this with Coleco games, other than Telegames and the mysterious Taiwan Cooper? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  18. Well the is an interesting variant, not seen anything like this. A vintage knock off? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F302917949260 Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  19. There is some one else that is working on a solution for the Adam's power supply? Maybe you are thinking of them? The usb one is live for preorders now btw
  20. There is main thread about it here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/261997-new-power-supplies-for-the-colecovision/?view=getnewpost Tldr: preorders are being taken imminently:) Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  21. Wow, so good to see it repaired, so many faults would have seen it in the landfill for most people. My own power switches turned up tonight, which means I can finally play with a clean picture, and get the thing reassembled! Really looking forward to seeing it all it's Russian suitcase nuke 80s splendour.
  22. That's cool, definelty affordable! Will they be able to support the Roller? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  23. Have we got a price yet? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  24. Also just purchased something from him, great to deal with Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  25. Had a good play with Centipede last night, good stuff. Couldn't play Victory as the button that fires isn't working, so that's a job for tonight. Might focus on getting all the Roller games for a while, although I'm torn between that and games with overlays as I don't own any at all yet. Back on the wider topic, there does seem to be an uplift on eBay lately with a lot of unusual items being listed and sold. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
