  1. I've got you down, see you in Portland! ..Al
  2. Zoo Keeper Atari 2600 by John W. Champeau Even though Champ Games has been busy working on several upcoming releases (Wizard of Wor Arcade, Galagon, and Avalanche), John W. Champeau has also been working on a port of Taito's Zoo Keeper for the Atari 2600! As some of you may know, Zoo Keeper was advertised back in the 80's in an issue of Atari Age magazine as 'coming soon'. Although rumored to be near complete, a prototype has yet to be found. However, a VHS tape was found that shows the animated sprites that were to be used, and the audio notes from the original Atari sound programmer Robert Vieira was also discovered and converted into a working ROM by AtariAge member Thomas Jentzsch. Thirteen years later, Champ Games has decided to bring Zoo Keeper to the 2600! Plans are to have a playable demo in our booth at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo! Zoo Keeper Development Thread
  3. I'll have a badge waiting for you at the show! See you there! ..Al
  4. Given the nature of these games, I bet most of them won't have or require tutorials. But Tommy of course could better address this issue. ..Al
  5. Thank you for this! There are many great games that don't get the attention they deserve, and these are two of them! I really love Duck Attack, anyone who likes Adventure should really give it a try. ..Al
  6. Holy cow, I haven't seen one of those in a long time! ..Al
  7. Greetings, If you place a $400+ order, I will include both games for free. No need to split it into two. I initially thought about restricting the free games to one per individual, regardless of amount or number of orders placed, but, hey, I don't want to discourage someone from placing a larger order. One way to get a Ballblazer cart or POKEY to me is to buy one in the US and have it shipped directly to me. Of course, you'd want to check with the seller to make sure they are okay with that first. PAL Ballblazer carts are fine. I have not sacrificed any Commando carts, nor do I want to do so, since that game is rarer than Ballblazer. No rush on getting me the cart, but I would not be able to complete the order until I have it. Another option is to acquire a POKEY chip in Australia, and I could then send you the game and you can install the POKEY yourself (I always socket the POKEY for these games). Then assemble it, and put the labels on yourself as well. A few people have done this, as obviously international shipping is expensive. ..Al
  8. Thanks for the order! I will send you an email with details about where to send the sacrificial Ballblazer. ..Al
