  1. There are a couple of new games coming for the 2600 from Packrat Video Games. RAM-Pong doesn't have any info on it yet, so I'll focus on the one that does. In fact I've already ordered a copy. Funds are short at the moment for me and all but Packrat builds everything by hand and is a one-man operation, so hopefully he won't send an invoice to our Pay Pal account until late next week. Game: Spaceman Splorf: Planet of Doom System: Atari 2600/VCS/Sears Video Arcade Publisher: Packrat Video Games Programmed by Andreas Gustafsson Game Size: 8K TV Type: NTSC or PAL Controller: Joystick Players: 1 Game Description from the Packrat site (I expect this will be in the manual as the story element) You are Splorf, Space Corp Sanitation Engineer 5th Class, Lavatorial Division. A small yet vital cog in the corporate machine. You are good at your job. The rumors have reached even the lowest levels of Methane Station; the harvest ships have brought disastrous news concerning the defensive system protecting Space Corp's interests from space pirates and fierce competitors! "You there", a middle manager shouts at you, "Commander Splix needs a volunteer! Get your lazy plarp up to level 17 immediately!" The rumours were true! Exploding gasteroids have damaged the disintegration fence above planet doom, and Commander Splix wants you to fix it! Repairman Splorf to the rescue... It looks like it might be in the same style of play as Bell Hopper (itself a good game programmed by Tomas Härdin). You can't go by a single screenshot though, so it may be a shooter for all I know. http://www.packratvg.com/pictures/splorf5.jpg Price: Cartridge and Manual = $25 http://www.packratvg.com/pictures/splorf2.jpg Limited Boxed Run = $40 http://www.packratvg.com/pictures/splorf1.jpg The Limited Box Run is being limited to 100 copies, the first batch of which will be available exclusively at the Midwest Gaming Classic. The remainder will be for sale on the Packrat Video Gaming site some time in late April (yes, I realize that I ordered a boxed copy before they are even available, but the Packrat site let me do it). https://www.midwestgamingclassic.com/ http://www.packratvg.com/pictures/splorf6.jpg Here's a link to the game's page: http://www.packratvg.com/splorf.html Packrat makes home brews and hacks for the Atari 2600, Vectrex, and Odyssey 2 / Videopac. I've noticed that some of their games are also available here at Atari Age, although some have different label art. ATARI 2600 GAMES COMMON TO PACKRAT AND ATARI AGE A-VCS-tec Challenge Backfire Dark Mage Jammed Okie Dokie Skeleton+ This Planet Sucks! I own Backfire and This Planet Sucks! I bought both from Atari Age. Strangely, Packrat's release of This Planet Sucks has no exclamation point in the title. Atari Age is faster at filling orders, but you can take your pick as to which to order from. Personally, I go with Atari Age, except for the games that are Packrat exclusives. ATARI 2600 GAMES EXCLUSIVE TO PACKRAT VIDEO GAMES Astronomer (Ordered)* Cosmic Bowling (Hack) Dragon Chase (Hack) Explosive Diarrhea (Ordered) The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring Muncher Packrat (Hack) Pressure Cooker Spaceman Splorf: Planet of Doom (Ordered) Space Invaders Vector Traffic Cop *Astronomer has been added to the database at http://highscore.com/
  2. From the album: Game Collections

    This is Yastuna 1: The Alchemy of Cubes and Yastuna 2: The Space Incident, two homebrew game compilations for the Atari Lynx.
  3. Well, it's finally happened. I received an Invoice from Packrat Video Games for 2 of the games that I ordered. But there are additional games that I have ordered from them. There's Important news on the Packrat front further down the page. For the first order of business I'd like to make mention of a PAL Exclusive that I received the other day from the U.K., and that's Meteor Defense, published by ITT Home Vision in 1983. This game was released in different countries under different titles. PAL Game: Meteor Defense aka: Astrowar, Astro War, Astro-War, Dead Ray, Missile War, Sternen-Kampf, Sterngreig, War 2000, etc. System: Atari 2600/VCS/Sears Video Arcade Publisher: ITT Home Vision Copyright: 1983 Genre: Shoot' em Up! Horizontal Scrolling Players: 1 Controller: Joystick (Sega Genesis Game Pad Compatible) Origin: Europe Rarity: Undetermined http://highscore.com Yes, it's in the Database Purchased via eBay from a seller in the U.K. Cartridge $13.35 + $4.55 (S & H) = $17.90. I inserted the cartridge into my Atari 7800 ProSystem (NTSC) and the game displayed in Black & White. I expected this as the most likely possibility. I played several games like this and then made the following video, which I posted to my Youtube channel. Today, after playing several games of "Millipede" for the 7800 I removed that cartridge and thought that I'd play "Meteor Defense." I inserted it into my 7800, and what do you suppose happened? The game played as before, only this time in full color! I don't really have an explanation for this. YOUTUBE VIDEO OF METEOR DEFENSE IN COLOR Packrat Video Game 1: Astronomer (2600 Home Brew); NTSC Standard; Limited Boxed Version (#35 of 34). Includes game box, box protector, cartridge, instructions, Stargazers insert, Astronomer refrigerator magnet. $35 + $4.50 (S& H) = $39.45. I hear some of you thinking, "#35 out of 34?" When I placed the order I lamented that the Limited Box Run was sold out. His response was "I kept a couple of spares and put them aside for people like you." I STILL don't know what that means, but I'll take it. Packrat's site listed the Limited Boxed Version as Sold Out! It is now listed as There are a few remaining boxes left! Game: Astronomer System: Atari 2600/VCS/Sear Video Arcade Publisher: Packrat Video Games Programmer: Alex Pietrow Copyright: 2018 Genre: You are an Astronomer searching the heavens for stars. That would make the Genre Star Gazing? Cartridge Size: 4K Players: 1 Controller: Joystick or Paddle Rarity: Home Brew http://highscore.com Yes, it's in the Database YOUTUBE PLAY VIDEO OF ASTRONOMER GRay Defender PACKRAT PAGE FOR ASTRONOMER http://www.packratvg.com/astronomer.html Packrat Video Game 2: Explosive Diarrhea (2600 Home Brew). Cartridge and Manual only. $20 + $4.50 (S&H) = $24.50. So a total of $64 for these 2 Home Brew games. Game: Explosive Diarrhea System: Atari 2600/VCS/Sears Video Arcade Publisher: Packrat Video Games Programmer: Chris Read Copyright: 2014 Genre: Action Cartridge Size: 2K Players: 1 Controller: Joystick Rarity: Home Brew http://highscore.com Yes, it's in the Database YOUTUBE PLAY VIDEO FOR EXPLOSIVE DIARRHEA ILLSeaBass PACKRAT VIDEO GAMES PAGE FOR EXPLOSIVE DIARRHEA http://www.packratvg.com/ed.html PACKRAT VIDEO GAMES SITE http://www.packratvg.com OTHER HOME BREW GAMES (etc.) ON ORDER Atari Age except where otherwise noted.
