  1. Definitely. Very impressive game considering it does not require the SGM. Without a doubt. An incredible adaption of the arcade game. I'd like to also mention Gauntlet which isn't necessarily a homebrew game but ought to be considered for this topic.
  2. I concur with the already mentioned: Elevator Action, Goonies, Light Grid Racing, Lode Runner, & Mario Bros. I wasn't even aware of this; thank you for mentioning it. Not yet mentioned: Astro Invader, Bagman, Caverns of Titan, Cix, Cold Blood, Cye, Frostbite, Galaga, Hole In One, Miss Space Fury, Module Man, Pacar, Rally X, Secret of The Moai, Side Trak, Spectar, & Sydney Hunter(s). Some "unreleased" prototypes: Dig Dug, Escape From The Mindmaster, Fireman/Fireworks Factory, Pac-Man, & Steamroller So many others but some I've only played for a minute and others I have yet to play at all.
  3. Actually there are several on eBay from same seller right now although they are asking over $300
  4. Not sure if Opcode will do another run of the original Super Game Module since for now they may be gearing up to produce the SGM2. After the SGM2 comes out some may be willing to part with their somewhat obsolete SGM1 but that may not be for a while. eBay doesn't seem to have any listed for sale right now but in the past there had always been one or two or more for sale. Perhaps a CollectorVision Phoenix would suffice since that has a SGM1 built in and it seems like they're almost ready to release. Someone was pondering selling their SGM1 here http://atariage.com/forums/topic/291471-what-is-the-value-of-an-original-sgm/
  5. G.I.Joe by Taxan is one of my all-time favorite NES games. A definite hidden gem that is criminally underrated. The sequel G.I.Joe Atlantis Factor by Capcom is OK by comparison and very similar but not quite as good in my opinion. Things like the white spray-painted check marks of where to place the bombs look so much better and more realistic in the Taxan game. The checkmarks are changed to white X's in The Atlantis Factor which also doesn't include the cool cut scene which shows the placing of the bomb over the enlarged spray-painted marking. But overall the bomb levels are some of my favorite levels in any game. I do wish the developers had added a higher difficulty setting with more bombs to place or else randomized the places to put the bombs. As far as I'm concerned any game that can do so should in order to add some replayability to otherwise memorized games made too easy.
  6. My copy of Risky Rick wont work if my Super Game Module is connected. I also have a loose Mario Bros cart that wont work if my SGM is connected. And I think the Gamester81 game wont work with SGM connected. So would games of this nature not work on Phoenix since SGM is always connected? Will new Sydney Hunter game be sold separate from Phoenix?
  7. Will the limited edition Adam version have it's own special Adam stickers or are the stickers the same for both? Will we be able to see both versions with their stickers soon? Also, will we see a picture of the SNES controller that's being offered? I have 3 official ones as well as many various generic ones so I probably don't need to order one unless it's unique.
  8. This game looks really solid and to be quite enjoyable. I'm excited for it's eventual release. I happen to already have the excellent Knight N More and hope to one day find a copy of the original Ghost N Zombies.
  9. Can we speculate and/or wish for what the secret game will be? I've been hoping for a CIB version of Mr. Do's Wild Ride or else a CIB version of Escape From The Mindmaster but those are both out there in ROM form already. So as far as something not yet ported, I'd love to have an English version of Abu Simbel Profanation which if I'm not mistaken was a European MSX exclusive: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERqJ55sVsGg I know nothing of it really other than it looks cleverly designed and that it's and a nice combination of Montezuma's Revenge, Tutankhamen, and of course Sydney Hunter. I've read it's a bit unfair though as far as bad places to die and re-spawn but maybe that could be tweaked. I find moving a screen at a time can offer some really great gameplay mechanics. For example jumping blind until you know where to land on the next screen or having multiple pathways akin to Adventure on 2600. And requiring caution when moving to a new screen like in Bagman, King's Valley, or Kid Icarus maze levels.

    Opcode 2019

    I voted for Frogger since I don’t think I have the actual arcade version; either on an arcade compilation disc or else digitally purchased. I may be wrong but I don’t know of a way to play the arcade version other than the cabinet itself or else in MAME. It may be an unlockable on some other game but I’m not sure. Pengo too is one that I don’t think is out there to buy even as a watered down port at least on the consoles I have.
  11. Thank you for clearing that up for me. In that case the boxed version is what I expect to order. I'm anxiously awaiting a picture of the real injected molded Standard edition. Although at the moment the Adam version looks strikingly good making it a tough choice between the two. It's hard convincing myself to not order both and that way get an unboxed Sydney Hunter as well for the loose pile. Although my wallet is telling me that one standard system/game is enough.

    Opcode 2019

    Elevator Action Frogger Galaga Jungle Hunt Im enjoying reading all this & Im looking forward to all future Opcode projects. Its so neat to be entering the 16-bit era after really pushing the limits of the CV to just about where the NES began to take things. Amazing to go from just games to an actual system with new enhanced games. Im happy to pledge my support when the time comes.
  13. This is great to hear. Id be happy to purchase a copy if made available. With Frenzy already on the CV itd be really nice to have Berzerk on there too. And even better if its close to arcade perfect.
  14. I would think everyone ordering already has Sydney Hunter so Im just wondering about this. Is there an option to not include the game or have an alternate choice? And what exactly is the SNES controller being offered? It seems the best SNES controller to use would be the Super Famicom NTT Network one which I assume is not the one being offered due to price/availability. Itd be neat if an option was to forgo game in favor of NTT controller. Regardless I plan to purchase Phoenix sooner I hope rather than later. Luckily I have two empty HDMI ports still available in my setup but Im going to somehow have to free up a power socket. Which begs the question what does the power cable look like? Will it be streamlined cable or will it have box at middle or end like original?
  15. I’d like to be added to the list please as well.
