  1. I tend to think of Supercharger games as being "not 2600" games, but Supercharger games. The same with the ARM stuff. They are "Melody" games. That's not belittling them or saying they are cheating, etc. They're just their own thing. I have no interest in making one, but I understand the appeal and think it will eventually become the only game in town. If you go to the store and sort by 'Most Popular' you see a trend in each release cycle. Whatever the big ARM arcade port(s) are sell an order of magnitude more than the others, which sell in increasingly lower numbers. This is also due to everybody having a Harmony cart now and the availability of the roms. Nobody does this for sales, but it does kind of show where things are headed. As for the competition, Galagon is this year's Mappy. Zoo Keeper is next year's Galagon.
  2. I don't think the Melody logo automatically means it is an enhanced game. Dungeon II's store page has the Melody logo on it and it is a regular 4k game. I think it just means Al is using Melody boards because it makes his life easier. The "Cartridge Size" spells it out though.

    Paddle Shooters?

    The "Jet Shooter" variations in Street Racer. Also, depending on your definition of shooter - Canyon Bomber.
  4. It's specifically listed as a hack here: https://web.archive.org/web/20171223121447/http://www.atari2600homebrew.com/home/category/drakon-croisade I've never seen a rom for it, but the screenshots of Goblin Chaser are underwhelming: https://web.archive.org/web/20171222172750/http://www.atari2600homebrew.com/goblin-chaser.html Also not quite sure how they are selling AA released games slightly cheaper than AA.
  5. This is pure speculation on my part, but based on the description, my guess would be whoever the author is used this as a starting point and made some changes. Nobody appears to want to drop the $22.75 to find out. People have been wondering about it for years now (almost identical conversation below). https://www.retrovideogamer.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=6965.0
  6. It'll be interesting to see how it turns out. As it stands, I foresee a sweep in the main categories and a for sure winner in the 4k, WIP, & 7800 categories.
  7. They really should have let Dick/Muttley win at least once. They won a few times in Laff-A-Lympics under the guise of the Dread Baron/Mumbly.
  8. I don't really consider Bifröst to be a WIP. It was finished long ago. The most recent changes were more of a patch to allow it to play on ZPH's funky hardware setup.

    Sokoban

    Loot boxes coming to a 2600 near you! I'm joking of course, but now that you've proven the technology it'll be interesting to see how long it takes for somebody to use it for something like that.
  10. It would appear he's reading the thread. The previous text I mentioned is now gone. Here's a screenshot proving it was there:
  11. Looks like he's updated the listing with the below (not helping his case): NTSC-Users: The PAL-Games on this Cartridge will work on your NTSC-System, but the colors are different. If you need a NTSC-Version of this Cartridge, please let me know. NTSC contains most of the listed games. Some are PAL-only and will be replaced with games like Halo 2600.
  12. Looking at his feedback history, he's also been selling compilations of original era games. So I doubt this is just a one-off. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-VCS-2600-16in1-Top-Games-MultiCartridge-Vol-1-/163890904276 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-2600-16in1-MultiCartridge-Vol-2-Top-Games-/163895064356
  13. Permission for Dungeon II was not given. I even have a "no compilations" in the legal section of the text version of the manual in the game thread. Very sneaky. Specifically doesn't mention any of the newer games in the listing, but has links to the YouTube video.
