  1. Neat! Very Impressive! "Mellon Husk" is the perfect name for a protagonist. Bed time for me now, but I will have another look tomorrow. 😎
  2. I was curious about what happened with the development of this game. I just read through this whole thread in one sitting. Thanks for explaining and answering the questions queried about the production, etc. Some of us have been burned in the past, so can be skeptical but it appears that you have made good on your promises! 😎 I wish you a speedy recovery/adjustment period. How is your eyesight now? Can you still write code, etc.? I empathize with your situation as I lost 75% of my hearing in my left ear and a bit in my right ear as well, as a child. It can be a struggle on some days. 😕 If you do a 2nd production of this game, I'm interested in getting a cart, etc. Good luck and best wishes! 😇
  3. Thanks for doing this, Karl! 😎
  4. I was there at the end.. around 10:45pm my time (Central Standard time zone) when they wrapped up the show.. though I admit I was way late to the party! I only caught a few minutes here and there and had to drive to the store for some things.. Great job, James and Tanya.. and kudos to all of your VIP guests! 😎

  6. Pick me! Pick me! I am interested in getting this game in physical form.
  7. Hey everybody. LidLikesIntellivision did not break any chain.. the Trotter was lost in the mail.. 4 Trotters (black cart) were originally built for this tour. If 1 got lost, then the next cart would be sent out to replace it. After the Trotter was hosted by LidlikesIntellivision, it traveled to Peru and Italy before it went missing again. I authorized using 2 of the limited run Silver Trotter carts after the 4 Trotter carts were lost. in total, 6 Trotters have been lost over the course of 11 years of world travel, the last one lost going from Brazil to Mexico. sorry for the grammar errors, my only internet for now is on this tiny smartphone screen, until I can get paid off on my hospital bills.. then maybe I can go back to using my laptop

    No offense is intended, and I agree the artwork looks great! However, something looks a bit "off" about the female in the label design. Either her head looks a bit too small, or her bosom is a bit too high. Anybody else seeing that also.. or is it an optical illusion? Again, the label concept is great! The game also looks interesting
  9. Tunnel Runner? (the box has "3D spherical monsters on it)
  10. Good guess, Waggie! you may be correct However, my guess is Spike's Peak Eddie Bauer sounds a bit like "bear", and Spike climbs and hikes in the outdoors. East and West could refer to the A and B difficulty switches OR the double- ender XonoX carts, also Spike starts the game traveling to the right side of the screen. Cooper, I believe, refers to the "Cooper Black" font used on Zellers carts, but I am not sure yet what the connection is. Hmm.. (Yoda) Meditate on this, I will.. (/Yoda)

  12. 2 minutes into the new year here. 2015 will be the year of the "Knight Rider 2600"
  13. Congrats, Brian! you guessed correctly! The answer is KLAX Here is a recap of the clues and their meanings that I was going for: Clue #1. What goes up... must come down, pal. In the gameplay, you can send colors you don't want back up the conveyor, but the tiles soon come down to you again. "Pal" is a hint that the game is common in PAL format (but also 10 copies in NTSC format are known to exist) Clue #2. First the worst, Second the same.. Last the best of all the game. I heard this playground rhyme as a kid. It refers to Klax being the last title released by Atari, for the 2600 (and the game is one of the best.) Clue #3. Video of the Minion saying "Bee Do!" over and over or, as our French friends may refer to as a klaxon siren of their emergency/police vehichles. Clue #4. Okay, I thought more people would respond during the last 24 hours, but perhaps i need to wait 8 crazy nights before i give another clue. That was on Christmas day (24 hours) and the "8 crazy nights" line is in Adam Sandler's well known "Hannukah Song" which traditionally covers 8 days: So 24 x 8 = 192. Klax on the 2600 is CX26192. Clue #5. Michael Jackson and his glove I picked this photo of the King of Pop because his iconic white glove is in full view and looks similar to the "K shaped" white hand you move around to select game options in KLAX. The hand also appears on the label of other Klax versions, like for the LYNX for example. Clue #6. I Love Lucy iconic episode the video features Lucy and Ethel working at the chocolate factory (and failing) to wrap the candies on the conveyor belt. They "stack" some of the candies in order to keep up, but still end up "missing" some of the chocolates.. similar to gameplay in KLAX. Clue #7. Although late to the party, this game appeared on at least 22 different game consoles or computers. According to http://www.klaxworld.com the arcade game made it onto 22 different systems by various programmers, most of them released. The 2600 version only was sold in PAL countries, because the 2600 market in North America was all but dead in 1990. Whew! ok i just typed all that from my phone. Back to you, BrianC!
  14. Hey guys! I see where some of your guesses are coming from, but nobody guessed correctly yet. I promise, there is no advanced math needed to get the answer. To clarify, Yes, the fourth clue was subtle and referred to "8 crazy nights" but also "24 hours" Also, as mentioned, the game is not food-themed, but, yes, our European "pals" here will have better luck finding this game. One more clue, I think will give it away: 7. Although late to the party, this game appeared on at least 22 different game consoles or computers.
  15. Not Breakout or Crazy Climber.. Here is another video clip clue about gameplay, though the answer to this puzzle does NOT involve food or drink in the game itself. The scene is from an iconic episode of "I Love Lucy".. and I am a bit surprised that Atari never licensed a game featuring Lucy or this scene. Hmm http://youtu.be/HnbNcQlzV-4
