  1. Gravitar must be the hardest game on the 2600.

  2. I think it means their games have better graphics than their competitors (Atari, Imagic, Coleco) which wasn't really true but was good advertising.
  3. Hi guys, just wanted to share my highscore of 33 on Freeway, played via Atarimania, game 1A. Couldn't beat it yet but stay tuned.
  4. Here's my high score of 33 on Freeway... I couldn't beat it yet but stay tuned.

      My bad. I couldn't see 'em on my end so I thought no one else could see them.

      Also, ignore the 36 scores. They're not mine, I don't know how they got there.

      Since the upgrade,  I'd say there's been lots of times when people's Status Updates appear to make no sense unless you click on it to see the pic :)

  5. I wonder what Larry Kaplan would think about Beat' Em and Eat' Em?

      Wait,  Gabe from Welcome Back Kotter?

  6. I wish there was a "skip ahead to 2021" button. You with me?

      I gotta say no also. Enjoying each day as it comes. No fast forward please, only rewind.

      Something very interesting is supposed to happen around the middle of this month (September 2020) and near the end of October and near the end of December, so I think I'll stick around to see what those things are.

  7. I'm thinking about collecting for the 2600. Should I go into the PAL or NTSC market?

    1. GoldLeader


      Unless you're in Europe I'd go NTSC...

    2. JacobZu7zu7


      Yeah I'd go for NTSC :) As Gold said.

      I agree with the others, depending where you live makes a big difference (well did for me). Im from Australia and collecting for PAL just sucked from my experience. I still had alot of PAL carts although many titles were just hard to find when they're relatively easily found in North America. Sold my collection off 6 years ago and haven't felt much regret especially as Stella suits my needs anyway. Having said that id like to get a RGB modded 7800 or 2600JR from the States, Euro controllers and a Harmony cart so i can play all the games and homebrew in NTSC format on a real console. Issue i have is shipping costs...

  8. RIP Curt. 2020 has been a terrible year.

      Any polygon 3D fighter.

      I thought someone tried to make a Zookeeper port. And Robotron, although someone called that "the flickeriest thing I had ever seen".

      My Favorite Answer to this Question is still STAR CASTLE,  because that was the one we kept coming back to,  back in the day.   So NOW,  I keep my copy of STAR CASTLE ARCADE handy to show what is possible with some ambition, good coding,  and modern technology!

  10. True. One criticism of the game I have is that it's almost impossible to play without a manual, just like the Swordquest series.
  11. Most people who call ET "the worst game of all time" are 1) Little kids who have no business bashing a game made long before their era. 2) People who don't like to read the manual and thus have a very frustrating experience playing the game. 3) People with legitimate criticisms with the game, although this is rare.
  12. Rescue Terra I High Score: 31,600 Honestly, this was probably one of the lowest scores I've ever gotten on this game.
