  1. Great job on this game! I received it a while back but I've been a bit busy. I finally had a chance to sit down and play it today...wow it really does feel like I'm playing Super Mario on the 2600. You did a great job capturing the look and feel of the game. And yes, excellent job on the label.
  2. Hi everyone, I'm trying to help my friend get an emulator for his PSP, and we're both stumped as to how to use any of the ones that we've found through Google searches. Can anyone recommend one that's easy to use? Any platform at this point, although my friend is partial to the NES and since this is Atari Age and Atari-related ones would be cool too. Thanks!
  3. Hey everyone, I'm selling my A/V modded Colecovision (with the intro screen skip) along with several games and some instruction manuals. If you're interested PM me for price and pictures.
  4. The only vendor that I buy all of my Colecovisions games from is eColeco. Up to this point I hadn't realized that all of their carts are copies, although I suspected the manuals were, but that explains why the carts look all new. Since I only buy them for play purposes this doesn't bother me one bit plus they work a lot better than some of the used original carts that came with my Colecovision. I do agree that their prices are rather high, but where else can you get brand new Colecovision games most with manuals? Their customer service is decent. They don't really answer questions but when you order, they give you a confirmation number within a day and games usually arrive in 2-3 days. So far I have purchased extension cables and the following games from them: Spy Hunter, Root Beer Tapper, and Escape from Mindmaster. I highly recommend them, although if you're looking for an actual Colecovision console I say go to www.vikingvideogames.com because you can get a clean, A/V modded Colecovision. Hope this helps.
  5. Hey, I really enjoyed this game. Super Mario Bros was one of my all time fave games for every Nintendo platform starting with the NES, so I was really excited when you decided to hack this for the 2600. Also, I'm a huge fan of Smurfs: Rescue in Gargamel's Castle, so you just combined 2 games that I really enjoy. I had a lot of fun playing this, and you did enough changes to really make it feel like Mario. I like the addition of the pipe, the changing of the sky to black, those slight changes really went far in changing the mood. I wish the music could've been altered but the Smurfs music surprisingly fit. Can't wait to purchase a copy. How do I go about doing so?
  6. These screenshots look awesome! Count me in I'd definitely like a copy. I'm a huge fan of Smurfs for the 2600 (more so than the CV version actually), and I'm a huge fan of Super Mario Bros for the NES, so this is a nice mixture indeed.
  7. Hmmm...I have a 7800 without an expansion slot....so this computer add-on won't be able to work with my 7800? Also, where would I be able to obtain a 7800 with an expansion module? I'd assume it would be very expensive since they were only produced in 84.
  8. This looks awesome so far! I'd get this in a second. My 2600 awaits...
  9. Definitely Colecovision. I owned an Intellivision for maybe about a month, and it's funny because I was born in the early 80s so I had never seen an Intellivision until recently. I had been drooling for months over at the IntellivisionsLives site once I got my hands on a system from eBay, I was totally disappointed. The graphics sucked, and I'm not just speaking from a spoiled modern gamer perspective since I have a 2600 which I enjoy very much, but the Intv graphics looked worse than the 2600 and the controllers sucked royally. It's like using a calculator to play your games. Although the Colecovision's controllers aren't much better at least it's a joystick (albeit short) versus a wishy washy disk and most games just use the action buttons not the keypad. Plus the graphics and sound rock!
  10. Thanks! I'll look into getting it repaired, but in that case I might as well keep it for myself.
  11. Hey everyone, I have a 7800 that won't power up, so I'm thinking of selling it to someone who wants to get it fixed, use it for parts etc. I have the original box (a lil beaten up but still decent), 2 joysticks (without the Atari stickers), RF cable, switchbox, and a brand new power supply, in box, from AtariGuide. I also have the following carts in great condition: Scrapyard Dog, Karateka, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr, and Pole Position II.
  12. I have just installed the latest version of z26 and downloaded all of the KidVid Audio Packs for Bernstein Bears and Smurfs. I can play Smurfs but I can't get the audio to start during gameplay. I know you're suppose to hit 1, 2, 3 to start the corresponding tapes but nothing happens. Any tips?
  13. Actually, Level 4 is the only level that's even challenging enough for me to handle, with the birds and bats not only moving fast, but also doubling back to get me from behind. And sometimes, because the arrangements of the obstacles in the cave and field zones are so random (you can even change the arrangements by having Smurf briely go back to the screen he left and then return), the bird and bat movements can get you in a place you don't want them to get you. The thing I don't like about CV Smurf is that the difficulty doesn't increase as you play (except if you're playing Level 3, where the third time around brings the game difficulty up to Level 4), whereas the Atari 2600 version DOES cause the difficulty to increase as you continue, up to Level 4. Anyway, as much as I enjoy playing this game over and over, the overall game does make me wish Gargamel could have been included as an enemy on the very last screen, where Smurfette awaits -- even if he appears no bigger than Smurf-size! 967312[/snapback] I couldn't agree more. Before I even bought a Colecovision, I was drooling over screenshots of Smurfs -- it just looked so advanced for its time, like a pre-Super Mario Bros. When I first played it on MESS I was really blown away. I enjoyed the music and the bright colors and the attention to detail, and likewise I could only play on Level 4. But once I finally beat it, there was no thrill left in the game, and it became too easy. I'm assuming the game is so easy because it was aimed at kids? I was hoping they could've done more. I would've liked more obstacles, and the possibility of retaliating -- perhaps against Gargamel. Although, I guess I might've been asking too much of a game that came out so long ago. I've found BC's Quest for Tires to be a much better platformer.
  14. I'm getting a little bored of my current selection of CV games, and wanted to know which other titles are popular among members of the board. Titles which I enjoy so far are Spy Hunter, Root Beer Tapper, Frogger, and Q Bert. Titles which I'm not so hot about are Venture and Donkey Kong.
