  1. It's an A+. I believe it is the best game currently available on the 7800, period.
  2. PacLand would have been the signature platformer for the 7800. As it is, Bentley Bear filled this void remarkably well and is an excellent platformer, standing heads and shoulders above anything else available on the ProSystem. PacLand has so much going for it, 100% informing (and pre-dating) the design of Super Mario Brothers in so many ways. Shigeru Miyamoto himself acknowledged as much, and it should be evident to any gamer playing the game itself. Add to this that the main character himself is synonymous with Atari (and more specifically the 7800) and it's clear that if a port was going to be made, it should be an actual port of PacLand and not some half-baked skin of another game altogether.
  3. Yep, this part is key! This is where you can make the "hustle" catches! I like this game a lot. Pitching is an underrated aspect in the game as well. Sliders, curve balls, fastballs, change-ups...you name it, you can do it.
  4. Hey good looking out man! Thanks, but I just won Pete Rose in a recent eBay auction! I paid $29.95 though...this would have been better! (Although I already have Choplifter....) This game is WAAAAY better than RealSports Baseball. (Not saying much) But it IS definitely the best baseball game on the system. I understand some of the hate bc of the "invisible walls" with the fielding, but once you get used to it it starts to play much better, and most of the "blind spots" are fairly rare. Way better graphics, smooth pitching and batting animation, and I like the outfielding mechanics for the most part. Overall, a fun baseball game.

  10. I bought it. I'll let you know when I get it! 🙏
  11. So, I recently purchased Crossbow and am now hunting down a copy of Alien Brigade. I've noticed that the light gun that was made for the XE (XG-1) is now somewhat difficult to come by, and are fairly expensive where I have found them. My question is - is it worth it to shell out for the XG-1 or are there any 3rd party light guns that were made for the 7800 that you'd recommend that were possibly superior to the XG-1? Open question, and thanks in advance for any help!
  12. More for my collection. But btw this and RealSports, this is definitely the better of the two on the system, limitations and all.
