  1. I mean, I wrote the question in english and I just assumed it would be implied that I was an english speaker. So yeah, english is going to be a requirement here.
  2. Title pretty much says it. Were there any text based adventure games made for the 8-bit line that was distributed on cartridge? Everything I seem to find is on disk.
  3. I just found a Letter Perfect 800 cart and when I boot it, it gives the Select (EADQ) prompt. I have no idea what to do to make it work though. I can get it to the menu if I press reset on me XEGS but from there, nothing responds other than the i key. Which allows input but the characters don't coordinate with the keys. Any ideas... also, HELLO from the year 2020, things are quiet different than we expected in 2014!
  4. Soooo I just came across this cartridge. Not sure how to get the data off, but if someone could walk me through it? Is it hard to come by?
  5. It's not on the store yet... it should be added really soon. SURPRISE!!!!! lol
  6. So far... CIBS: N.E.R.D.S. Chetiry Space Cactus Canyon HALO 2600 Aardvark Wizard Of Wor Arcade Galagon Mappy Space Rocks Draconian Medieval Mayhem Pac-Man 4K Spies in the Night Juno First Sing Carts: Synth Cart
  7. I really don't know why... but it's so simple that I really love it. I think it's great.
  8. What's the status of this? It's so freaking good! I hope it gets finished and a cart one day!
  9. Interesting, I'll play with that and see if that's the case. I felt like it was higher... but maybe not.

    Please keep going... please? or at least maybe let us play the 2016 bin? please?
  11. I can't tell, but I think you missed my point. There isn't a firm understanding of what is and is not acceptable cross over. We can argue about what the image is supposed to represent, but that doesn't change what it actually is... a top down 2D maze with a long sprite. So visually, it would be more player friendly to have some kind of way to tell what the "feet" are as you try to make out the layout of the timed maze. In the end, it's just a suggestion... the dev can do whatever they like. It's still one of my favorites
  12. @graywest Ok I think I know what happened. So here's a map I was presented with today. In a flash scenario you are looking for a path the character can fit through without hitting the walls. Now the character is skinny but tall, and in this maze, there isn't any logical solution. This is what I got yesterday. But there IS a path, by means of having to hit half of your body in the wall, which you can do. But this logic works against the players motive. Effectively saying... You have to hit the walls but not too much. That just doesn't work as the player IMO. It was very confusing. The only reason I figured that out was because I threw myself into a wall out of frustration knowing it would kill the character, then realizing that my character went way higher up than it should have before dying. I went back and I realize this is in the manual, but there needs to be a visual representation of this goal. So I've thought about it and I really don't know what the solution is, unless you put a belt/line/socks? I dunno, something on the character so the player knows their target space/limit? In my opinion this is a cool level that just needs a better mechanism but a simple belt and mention of the line/marker in the manual might do the trick.
  13. I didn't screen capture it. I was playing on hardware and I didn't record it. Kicking myself for that, sorry.
  14. This is one of those games I just keep going back to... both Spies in the Night games are unique and clever. Really nothing like them. I do have a question, in SINT2 there is a level where you have to make your way through a room without hitting walls, the walls are only flashed every so often. When that level loads, is it procedurally generated or a set pattern? I ask because I swear I got a room that couldn't be solved while playing the rom. Something like a minute and a half left on the timer and I just looked for the whole time and couldn't find an exit pattern. It genuinely seems unsolvable. can that happen?
  15. So a while back I completed a stranger things hack based on dig dug... what still bothers me is that I can't figure out how to hack the music to be different. Any suggestions?
  16. There's some really cool game ideas here. I love the split screen mini map idea.
  17. For anyone playing this game and getting high scores... this track needs more competition! https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/galagon/atari-2600-vcs/ntsc-standard-difficulty-bb-points/
  18. I've developed an involuntary twitch waiting for this cart release... got any art work teasers?
  19. This is a really fun and incredible game. Watching it come together piece by piece, it's just been great! Looking forward to the release!
  20. Is it a crazy thought to consider a rarity guide for home brews? Since some are ran in really short runs, or out of print... or even reissues like Evil Magician Returns 2... just wondering if it's something that might be of value.
  21. Well I know that this isn't possible on the 2600, that's just common sense. So my logical conclusion is that John Champeau broke into my house (in the middle of a pandemic no less) and tinkered with the insides of my prized heavy sixer. How dare you break into my home... you could have just asked, I would have let you in. This is seriously amazing. I have two insta-buys with ChampGames now... just waiting. Got them stimy dollas waiting for ya!
  22. amazing work... August 2020???? Just in time for my Birthday! Seriously, this is so good and so close to the arcade it's incredible.
  23. Is that a PAL cart? I believe the only silver label Asteroids NTSC cart is dated 1986. All the others are PAL and not that rare. But this gets to the core of my post. There is at least one label variant of asteroids in a silver label that is NTSC and it is insanely hard to track down. Is it a +8/9? Meh I don't know... But it's way higher than a 3. It was, I'm lead to believe, only released for one year in NA.
