  1. One of the games for me is Stampede. The sound of the horse and the point tallying sound as well as the great gameplay put me in the zone. I also can get in the zone with millipede. -mike
  2. There was a clone of Bagman for the color computer 2 (coco2) that I can't remember the name of. I did own it back in 84 and it played very close to the original. -mike
  3. I like alot of the games from the 70's including bowling, brain games, air sea battle, human cannonball, skydiver,breakout, canyon bomber, minature golf, surround, combat, and video olympics. I still enjoy all of these games and I don't think I really disliked any of the other games that I didn't mention. I just remember playing those games alot back in the late 70's and early 80's. -mike
  4. This game is unbelievable. Lot's of fun, thanks for making another 1k gem. I would agree with an email on the stella list that it would be cool to have a paddle controller version of this game. -mike
  5. Hey, I was playing the minigames of nhl hitz 2003 the other day with a couple of friends when we came across a really fun game. It was a cross between hockey and tic tac toe. The basic game was you would choose where you wanted to place your x or o by pressing a direction and then the shoot button (up moved to the top center, diagonal up+right shot in the upper right, etc) and your opponent could block an area by pushing a direction and the vutton. If the shooter picked an area that the opponent didn't block then he would get the space. The minigame had the ability to change a square from an x to an o (or vice versa) which kind of ruined some strategy. I think this would make a great 2600 game Battle Tic Tac Toe. You could have a variation where you couldn't change your opponents square, and you could have a version where you could change an opponents square. It would be great if it could be a single player game as well as a two player game. If I could program I would do this game, but unfortunately I cannot and I have no time in the foreseeable future to go through Andrew Davie's programming tutorials. Is there anybody who would be interested in doing this project feel free to email me or simply post here. -mike
  6. Check this site out http://www.reservoir-gods.com/ they made a version of the copter game awhile ago and they have these features: With multiple game types including an epic story mode, 21 high score tables, a picture gallery and saveable replays, SuperFly will keep flying high for weeks. The key feature here is the epic story mode. I will play this sometime soon and report just how epic it is. I can see an 8k version of this.... -mike
  7. Where can one get this 4mb alpine that everyone is talking about? Also is there any info on the alpine? Thanks, Mike
  8. My high score is 1347, although I don't have a screenshot because I played it on the cuttlecart 2 (works great!). I think you should bump this game to 4k and have the option through variations as to how fast or close the cave can get. Have some variations where there might be some items to pick up and drop off. Maybe have a variation where you have to fly really deep into the cave and then shoot an atomic bomb and then fly out of the cave before having to do it all again. I would love to see this game released with a label and instructions as if it were an original release and have all the variations listed as games, such as 27 game variations. This is a great game and it makes me want to learn how to program. Thanks Thomas for an excellent game. -mike P.S. Everyone should get a CC2 when there released.
  9. I am not a big fan of their music, but these guys seem cool. (I am also in awe of any bass player with more strings than me.) Personally I don't like this band, but it is cool that they used the atari vcs for there video. As for having more strings on a bass, it's not needed. He is using a six string so there is only 8 more notes (4 lower, and 4 higher) than a normal bass. Considering that the 4 higher notes are played way up on the fretboard they are kind of useless. Do like Mark Sandman of Morphine did and take strings away. He used a 2 string bass with a slide and had unbelievable basslines. I'm going to stop talking about music now and be happy that the atari beat the horrible ps2 (I have been telling people this for years) -mike
  10. Hey, There are a couple of great mac websites to goto. http://www.ambrosiasw.com/news/ Has great shareware games http://www.insidemacgames.com Has news and on the right side of the screen there is an area called mac download files. This is constantly updated with programs (shareware, freeware, and demos) As for a hybrid CD, I don't think you have to bother. I think you can download the programs onto your PC and burn them like a regular disc. Your mac should be able to do this. I have burned roms, and mp3's from my windows and moved them over to my mac with no problems. -mike P.S. As for great games check out ambrosia software's escape velocity series, their bubble trouble game, actually any game they made is great
  11. Hey, You have to get one of these when they are made available. I'm one of the beta testers and this is easily Chad's best piece of hardware so far (I also have the intellicart and the original cuttle cart). Now does anybody with programming experience want to modify some of the 7800 games that don't use the high score cartridge to be able to use it -mike
  12. I just found this on the internet http://www.xgamestation.com/ I personally can't wait for this to become available. Let me know what you think about this. -mike
  13. Hmmmm ... I wonder if PinMAME could pull this off? Actually this game is done with Pinmame and visual pinball, so if you have a PC you can play this game just like the arcade (well kinda). It is a great translation for that by the way. -Mike
  14. I have an NBA Jam arcade Jamma board along with the marquee for the game that I want to get rid of. If you have an arcade cabinet thats jamma you can just plug it in and go. If you don't they have something called a supernova that allows you to plug jamma boards into it and then connect it to a television. You can find out more info here http://www.massystems.com/ If your interested make me an offer and email me here [email protected]

Shep wrote: When I finally got there, I saw the guy was new and halfway through punching in my stuff he got confused, and asked another peppy dude, but much more annoying than the last (fast fast talker), who guided him through the rest of the purchasing. We'll before they told me my total he told the guy to through in the card, told me i was getting this card because it would save me so much percent on used games and i got a free subscription to the aforementioned stupid magazine. I pollitley said "no thankyou", and he says "no we will put it on here, it will all even out as if you didnt have the discount yet", i repeated "no thats ok", but I ended up walking out there with a stupid card. Ridicoulous, totally took advantage of me because Im young, polite, and somewhat passive. Mike responds: What I would do is go back to the store with an empty beer or a juice bottle filled with gasoline and a dirty, oily rag sticking out of it. I would approach the individual that forced me to buy this discount card and say "I really appreciate you forcing me to purchase this discount card. You must really care about your customers." At this point I would slowly pull out a lighter and explain to him that I feel sorry that someone as annoying and rude an individual who obviously doesn't listen to what people say probably has a hard time attracting the ladies. I would then light the rag and tell him that I was helping him out because from now on the ladies would feel pity for such a pathetic bastard and I would throw the now flaming bottle at the clerks feet. At this point as he is screaming and trying to put himself out of fire (funny how in the heat of panic people forgot the basic principal of stop, drop, and roll) I would take out the discount card and throw it at his now burning flesh Oh i was just kidding about that..... -Mike
  16. I just found this on the web http://zektor.com/zvg/index.htm Has anybody used this before or have any info on it? -mike
  17. Hey, Wow, I think it was my post that you were talking about. This rocks that you made a level editor for minature golf. I will definitely be contributing a level or two. I didn't think anybody was really reading my post as I only got one reply. Thanks for putting effort into making an editor for this great game. -Mike
  18. What is the cuttlecart underground set? Is this still available? -Mike
  19. I had a great time at philly classic. I spent way too much money this year, but I'm not dissapointed. Ronen Habot's castle blast for the 5200 and his vecrace/vaboom game for the vectrex are great additions to anybody's library. Paul Slocoms Marble Craze is unbelievable. This game is soo much fun and anybody with an atari 2600 should get this!! Also got a copy of Leonard Herman's Phoenix the rise and fall of video games. This book is a must have for anybody interested in video games and their history. Where was an atari 2600 developers kit? I didn't see this and would have loved to get this. Is it available on any website? -Mike
  20. Hey, I was thinking about this recently, let me know what you think. First, some ideas for games that could be hacked (or new programed versions) to create new life into them. Minature Golf - All new courses can be made to create a minature golf 2 game. Golf - All new courses can be made Canyon Bomber - Create new multi level canyons to bomb. Also a hack could be made to make the targets like the original arcade game where you bomb specific point targets. Dodge Em - Make it so it doesn't end and also can create new levels. Possibly shrink everything to get an extra lane or two. Brain Games - All new mind type games. Sky Diver - Multilevel places to land. Also the sprites can be made smaller to give alittle more time to fall before you have to open your chutes Human Cannonball - New obstacles to shoot over (or through) to get to the landing pad Math Gran Prix - maybe change this so it can have more than two players and have more (or larger) boards. Maybe change this so it could be more than math questions, possibly trivia or spelling questions. This could be the Atari's version of a party game. These are just a couple of hack or new project ideas. I have one more idea that would be great for the 2600. Make a version of (or game like) Cubivore for the gamecube for the 2600. Obviously it wouldn't be a 3-D version of it, possibly a top down perspective. You can morph into the different characters that will have different strenghts with your goal to be the king of the cubivores. Let me know what you think of these ideas. -Mike

  22. I have recently begun playing this game again on an emulator (at work ). and I have to say that the gameplay on level 1 is easy. but level 3 is pretty tough. I have played many games of othello over the past few years and I have to say that the A.I. is quite impressive on level 3.
  23. I have to say that KC Munchkin is worth making. I like the way that you can make your own mazes and the game is just fun to play. If I had any programming ability I would try to make this myself. -Mike
