  1. Well... Now I wouldn't go that far... But I do have a couple of game ideas that I'm gonna start playing around with so... Who knows?
  2. I'm actually surprised at how much is coming back to me as I'm reading, even though it's been a little over 30 years since I did any sort of programming in Basic.
  3. Hey all. I'm a 48 year old disabled United States Marine who is also a paraplegic. I've been diagnosed with cancer three times as well as suffering through three separate strokes in the last 15 years. So... I don't have a ton of options most days as to what I can enjoy going. Thankfully, I've been a gamer for the last 42 years straight and started out on a used Pong machine that I got at a yard sale. From there I played and used almost every game system and computer over the years. As hard as it may be to believe; I only just recently joined this site and decided to dive into the Homebrew games (TNT Cowboy blew my mind when I watched a very short YouTube review of it). I have to agree that HERO is one of my two favorite games for the 2600 but it's tied for best game with Riddle of the Sphinx (by the best damned game company back then known as Imagic). I'd love to see both Hero AND RotS created for the Intellivision. I've only just started reading my copy of Programming Games for the Intellivision BUT... I gotta believe that with the Intellivision having the numeric keypad capabilities that Riddle of the Sphinx would be even more intuitive to play on the Intellivision. The fact that it COULD require a single controller as opposed to needing both joysticks on the Atari to play would be neat. I think that a newer version of HERO on the Intellivision would be cool and similar to how much more fun Pitfall II versus the original Pitfall. Anyways, I just wanted to comment and say hello folks. There is do much to read on all of the various different console forums on this wonderful site. Semper Fidelis
