  1. It's not easy keeping my Atari 7800 ProSystem well fed with 2600 and 7800 games that it has never experienced before while staying on a budget. I received 3 emails from Atari Age today confirming that three of my orders have shipped, leaving 2 still being processed. So what did I do? Placed another order of course. Plus which, I buy games on eBay. I'm not as mobile as I once was, so I do most of my game shopping online. Here's some of what's coming: Atari Age (Homebrews/Hacks) Bentley Bear's Crystal Quest (7800; POKEY) Berzerk: Voice Enhanced (2600) Draconian (2600) Elevators Amiss (2600) Flappy (2600) Galactopus (2600) Meteor Shower (7800; Red label variant. I already own the Blue label variant) Rainbow Invaders (2600) Atari Age (Custom Reproductions) Demolition Herby (2600) Gas Hog (2600) River Patrol (2600) Packrat Video Games (Homebrews) Astronomer (2600) Explosive Diarrhea (2600) eBay (Games from back-in-the-day) Deadly Duck (2600) Planet Patrol / Wall Defender (2600; 2-in-1; PAL) Thunderground w/Manual (2600) I only order Custom Reproductions of games that I can't otherwise afford. Sure, they play through emulation. But I'd rather play on actual Atari hardware. I especially like Demolition Herby, which is a take on Amidar/Spiderdroid but with some vehicular combat added for extra spice, and River Patrol, an extremely rare port of the arcade original for the 2600. It even has music throughout. I only recently started playing Gas Hog thru emulation. An interesting game. You probably noticed that I bought a PAL 2-in-1 on eBay (from a seller in Germany) - Planet Patrol / Wall Defender. I already own the NTSC release of Planet Patrol, however Wall Defender is another matter. Not only do I not own it on cartridge, but it will not run properly on my emulator - EMU7800 (version 2.2). I downloaded the latest version of Stella for Windows 10 (64-bit), but I have a problem. It seems to have many games already pre-loaded (such as Wall Defender), but when I select a game it only runs an attract mode for that game. I can't start an actual game. Maybe someone here can help me with this. -Mark
  2. Well, I'm fully back, with a new Web Cam and a Blue Snowball ICE Microphone. I decided to cover Draconian, and the extra bit I found from Al in the box.
  3. Here's a sneak peak at the games that I have ordered, so they will probably appear in future installments of Feeding My Atari. And of course, future installments of Game Review. I currently have 5 Atari Age and 2 Pack Rat orders being processed, and some eBay stuff. ATARI 2600 / HOME BREWS All Games From Atari Age Unless Stated Otherwise 2005 Mutigame Multicart Hunchy Jetman M-4 Marble Jumper Nightrider Rocket Command Zirconium Astronomer (Pack Rat Video Games) This game is being referred to on some sites as Astronomer 2600. BerZerk: Voice Enhanced Draconian Elevators Amiss Explosive Diarrhea (Pack Rat Video Games) Juno First Lady Bug Warring Worms: The Worm (Re)Turns ATARI 2600 / CUSTOM REPRODUCTIONS Atari Age Assault Gas Hog River Patrol ATARI 2600 / NTSC eBay Demolition Herby ATARI 2600 / PAL VERSIONS eBay Planet Patrol / Wall Defender 2-in-1 (this arrived today) Meteor Defense (PAL Exclusive) Mission 3000 A.D. (Boxed) ATARI 7800 / HOME BREW Bentley Bear's Crystal Quest - POKEY Notes I am continuing to see home brews for sale on eBay for more than they are being sold for here at Atari Age. Sorry, I'm not spending $30 (plus shipping) for games that I can get here for $19 (plus shipping). I'm sure some of you have noticed that Pack Rat is slow. They are a one-man operation with no inventory is why. He produces each cartridge one at a time. I did receive an email about two weeks ago saying that my orders are approaching next-in-line status. Yes, I already own a Custom Reproduction of Demolition Herby. I ordered it when ratty looking cartridges were popping up on eBay for between $50 to $75. Well, a few nights ago I was searching thru eBay and found a near-mint NTSC cart (handle) for $24.98, with FREE shipping. I jumped on it! Why purchase PAL carts? Well, I ordered the 2-in-1 from Germany to see if it would work with my NTSC set-up. It does, but in black & white. I was recently told by another user at http://highscore.com that he has had this same experience on some releases, while some PAL carts will run in color but with a vertical bar that rolls. I've seen videos of this and it's except-able to me. Other PAL games run fine. I see no reason not to collect PAL carts, especially as some are PAL exclusives. Tonight I bought Mission 3000 A.D. (Boxed), and Meteor Defense (PAL Exclusive). Meteor Defense is one of those games that I've seen playing on an NTSC console in color, but with the rolling vertical bars. No one has yet told me if the first Warring Worms game is still available somewhere. Is this classified information that I'm requesting? Oh, I achieved a score of over 400,000 points on Worm War I; Game 1; B/B. That explains the image for this entry.
  4. You may know it better as Bosconian.
  5. Perhaps I should lead off with the news that all missing Quadrants and Difficulty Modes have now been processed and added to the http://highscore.com database. Previously, only scores achieved in the Alpha Quadrant in Normal Difficulty could be submitted at the site. As soon as I received my copy I requested the following be added: Draconian / Quadrant Beta / Sector 1 [Normal] Draconian / Quadrant Delta / Sector 1 [Normal] Draconian / Quadrant Gamma / Sector 1 [Normal] Draconian / Quadrant Epsilon / Sector 1 [Normal] Draconian / Quadrant Alpha / Sector 1 [Kids] Draconian / Quadrant Beta / Sector 1 [Kids] Draconian / Quadrant Delta / Sector 1 [Kids] Draconian / Quadrant Gamma / Sector 1 [Kids] Draconian / Quadrant Epsilon / Sector 1 [Kids] Draconian / Quadrant Alpha / Sector 1 [Easy] Draconian / Quadrant Beta / Sector 1 [Easy] Draconian / Quadrant Delta / Sector 1 [Easy] Draconian / Quadrant Gamma / Sector 1 [Easy] Draconian / Quadrant Epsilon / Sector 1 [Easy] Draconian / Quadrant Alpha / Sector 1 [Hard] Draconian / Quadrant Beta / Sector 1 [Hard] Draconian / Quadrant Delta / Sector 1 [Hard] Draconian / Quadrant Gamma / Sector 1 [Hard] Draconian / Quadrant Epsilon / Sector 1 [Hard] You don't have to stay in Sector 1 of course, however you must begin your game there. Quite abit of effort on my part to type all that for submission purposes as I'm dyslexic. At any rate all requests were processed some time over the past 12 hours or so. So if you are a User there, submit your scores to be voted on. If you're not, then please join us. I do have a question however, and it pertains to scoring. Yesterday (05.09.2019) I was playing in the Epsilon Quadrant in Kids difficulty trying to hit a million points. I wanted to see what would happen if I did, because the font size used during game play is too large to accommodate another digit, however there's room on the title screen. I didn't find out, as I only hit 935,400. http://highscore.com/score/index.php?s=83034 Can anyone out there answer this question? Draconian, by-the-way, is a very good port of both arcade versions of Bosconian. It is therefore highly recommended, and addictive! https://atariage.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1107 So if you are a User at http://highscore.com and own this game then please feel free to submit your scores (scores achieved via emulation are allowed as long as you submit them in the Emulation category). If you aren't a member yet then please consider joining. It's totally FREE to both join and use.

    Draconian

    From the album: Signed Stuff

    Signed by Darrell Spice Jr. at 2017 PRGE.
  7. Game: Draconian System: Atari 2600/VCS/Sears Video Arcade Developer: SpiceWare Publisher: Atari Age Programmed by: Darrell Spice, Jr. Graphics and Level Design by: Nathan Strum Sound Effects, Music, Digitized Voices by: Mike Haas CDF Driver co-written by: Darrell Spice, Jr., Chris Walton, Fred Quimby Cartridge Size: 32K CDF Copyright: 2017 Genre: Shoot 'em Up; Multi-directional scrolling Homebrew Port (Bosconian) Controller: Joystick (Sega Game Pad Compatible) Players: 1 Rarity Rating: H (Homebrew) FROM THE ATARI AGE STORE PAGE: Enemy forces have had the audacity to invade our galaxy and set up occupation forces, operating from space stations that have been strategically placed throughout the five quadrants of our galaxy. (We’re aware that there should only be four quadrants, but interplanetary gerrymandering resulted in there being a fifth one.) Your mission is to choose one of the quadrants, then clear out the enemy forces, one sector at a time. This is an excellent port of the arcade classic Bosconian. It fact it's two ports in one, as it replicates the levels found in the Namco original, and those found in the North American release by Midway. Actually, it contains even more Bosconian goodness. The game includes 5 Quadrants, with 4 Difficulty Modes for each. Kids, Easy, Normal, Hard. The 5 Quadrants are Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and Epsilon. A = 17 Midway sectors, last 6 repeat (after sector 256 it goes back to sector 1). There are a few repeated sectors within it, 13-15 are a repeat of sectors 9, 5, then 10. B = 22 Namco sectors, last 6 repeat. Likewise there are repeated sectors within it, including some from the A quadrant. Γ = 9 Tribute sectors, all 9 repeat. Stations are arranged to render the initials of key contributors within the radar. Δ = 16 Contest sectors, all 16 repeat. E = randomly generated sectors. These are not repeats of any of the other 4 quadrants, 8 stations are randomly positioned at the start of each sector. Additional Info has been added to the above breakdown of the 5 Quadrants, and was provided to me by SpiceWare. Each Space Station has 6 Weapons Pods, except for the DELTA Quadrant, where there are some sectors with Mega Space Stations (my name for them, as they aren't mentioned in the manual). These larger stations contain a secret hidden inside, which I won't spoil for you here.* Delta Quadrant sector levels designed by Anders Carlsson, Alessandro Ciceri, Steve Damon, Chris Derrig, German Gonzlaez-Morris, James Earl O'Brien. SCORING: All of this lined up properly when I typed all of this in. How it posts is a different story entirely. Asteroids ..................................................10 Points Cosmo Space Mine...................................20 Points I-Type missile............................................50 Points P-Type missile...........................................60 Points E-Type missile...........................................70 Points I-Type formation Leader...........................100 Points P-Type formation leader...........................120 Points E-Type formation leader...........................140 Points Spy Ship.....................................200/400/800 Points Destroy Station Weapons Pod.................200 Points Destroy Station.......................................1500 Points Destroy all ships in I-Type formation........500 Points Destroy all ships in P-Type formation.....1000 Points Destroy all ships in E-Type formation.....1500 Points You begin each game with four ships. You earn extra ships at 20,000 and 70,000 points. Thereafter you earn an additional ship every 70,000 points. So at 140,000, 210,000, 280,000, etc. In an earlier Blog entry I asked what would happen if the player should reach 1 million points, as the font used to display your score during game play appears too large for the additional digit.+ Well, today I found out while playing in the ALPHA Quadrant in the Kids difficulty. In fact I hit 1,332,030 points. The game continued displaying my score just fine. Something that I found interesting was when I earned a 10th Extra Ship. Up until then the game displayed a single digit, as you'd expect, however when I earned the 10th one the game displayed something else. I paused the game long enough to get my wife from the living room. I gave her my Smart Phone and asked her to take a photo of the screen. She took several, but all were too blurry to go by. I thought that it looked like a Capitol H, but my wife said no, it was the Roman Numeral 10 (looks like a Capitol X)**. Since I'm dyslexic I'll go with her assessment, especially as it makes more sense than an H. This is an exceptionally good game. The Melody Board's CDF mode is put to good use, allowing for Digitized Voices without the need of an AtariVox. Features also include TV-Type Detection. Cartridge is compatible with the NTSC, PAL, and SECAM Standards. It should auto-detect which standard you are using, however if for some reason that fails to work you can manually select which Standard to use via the menu. The game also includes a pause feature. If played on a 2600/VCS toggle between Color and B/W to pause. On the 7800 ProSystem simply hit the pause button. Hitting the fire button will un-pause the game. SOUND This homebrew port of Bosconian includes the following voice clips: Blast Off! Alert! Alert! Battle Stations! Spy Ship Sighted! Condition Red!! PACKAGING: Excellent For $35 you get the cartridge, 8 page color manual, and 10" x 14" poster by Nathan Strum. The Box Upgrade is only $15 (while supplies last), bringing the total to $50 (not including Shipping, or Atari Age Annual Subscriber's discount). Of the games for the 2600 that I've reviewed so far, this is easily the best. RANKING: 1 (out of 9) Draconian (Homebrew port of Bosconian) Worm War I Demolition Herby Allia Quest (Homebrew) Naughty List (Homebrew) Tapeworm (with the sound turned down low) Bell Hopper (Homebrew) Alligator People (Prototype) Fire Fly ATARI AGE DRACONIAN PROMOTIONAL VIDEO YOUTUBE VIDEO REVIEW OF DRACONIAN AtariLeaf REVIEWED GAMES IN THE DATABASE AT HIGH SCORE http://highscore.com/ Allia Quest Bell Hopper Demolition Herby Draconian Fire Fly Naughty List Tapeworm Worm War I So only Alligator People is missing from the HS database, although I have requested it. ATARI AGE DRACONIAN STORE PAGE https://atariage.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1107 OTHER GAMES BY DARRELL SPICE, JR. INCLUDE Medieval Mayhem Stay Frosty Stay Frosty 2 Space Rocks *"A number of the levels entered in the Draconian Δ Quadrant Sector Design Contest have names. Level with the Mega Space Stations is named The hunt for the 4 mukors as the stacked stations appear similar to the boss in the arcade game Blasteroids." -SpiceWare **"It's an X and stands for eXceeds 9 lives, shown if you have 10 or more lives remaining." - SpiceWare +The Maximum Score displayable on the Title Screen is 99,999,999. However while playing only 7 digits will fit on-screen. Additional information added to this review came courtesy of SpiceWare.
