  1. Here is a brief game play video I made of 3 of the games from Paddle Party: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LByTppo_E3s
  2. Movies have "deleted scenes". How about video games? Of course they do. For Paddle Party, I had an idea that, at a certain point in the menu system, if the player pressed the "8" on the keypad, a bunch of 8's would get drawn to the screen and the player could blow them up. It wasn't a game really, just a software "toy" to play with on the screen. But, I just couldn't get it finished on time to put it in Paddle Party. As you will see, like most movie "deleted scenes", this is probably no great loss. But, I thought I would finish it and release it as a standalone rom image while the idea was still fresh in my mind. One big advantage of doing a standalone version - video game music veteran (but new to the Intellivision) "Der Luchs" has graciously provided us with some cool music to listen to while the eights are appearing and flying around, and he even made a nice tune for the title screen. Thanks Der Luchs! Here is the rom image (for use with an emulator or your favorite multicart): press8.rom How to "play". 1. Press 8 (on the keypad or your computer keyboard) to start the action. 2. While the music is playing you can use the disc (or arrow keys) to change the color mix and scrolling direction. 3. After the music stops, you can move the arrow over an "8" and press the action buttons (shift key?) to start a timer. When a timer stops, it blows up that 8 and any surrounding 8's of the same color. You can have many timers active at the same time. 4. If you click on an empty square, an 8 appears. The color is based on the last direction you moved in. 5. Press 8 to go back to the title. 6. That's it. That's all it does. Good Points: 1. It's free. 2. It's fun. 3. It's chaotic. 4. Great music. 5. More eights than any other video game on earth. 6. You can't LOSE! (because it is a toy, not a game). 7. Cartoon gravity. 8. No annoying ghosts. To be fair, here are the bad points: 1. No box. 2. No manual. 3. No overlays. 4. No paddles. 5. No cartridge. 6. No sevens. 7. No annoying ghosts. 8. You can't WIN! (because it is a toy, not a game). 9. A bit dusty, innit? Let me know what you think… Catsfolly
