So I picked up a nice Atari cartridge lot off Craigslist the other day: 45 loose cartridges for $25, 22 of them 7800. Among the 7800 carts included was a new one to me: Tower Toppler. I loved this game on my C64 back in the day, so I was excited to have it on another platform for which I've recently started collecting. Get it home, clean the contacts, insert it into my 7800, and the title screen comes up with that familiar little ditty playing. So I excitedly press the button on my Proline controller to start playing and the first level comes up. Submarine appears, drops off my little guy, and then.... cuts to the next level screen? Huh. That was weird. So the next level comes up, little guy hops out of the sub... and another cutaway to the next level screen. WTH? Turn off the 7800, clean the cartridge's contacts especially meticulously this time, clean the contacts in the 7800 cart slot, and try again. And got the same result. Am I missing something obvious here? Or is there some extra hardware in the TT cart that may be fouled up and causing the game to malfunction? If it's helpful, I can record and post a video of the behavior. But I'm hopeful that this is just some simple-yet-obscure issue that one of you longtime AA regulars will know off the top of your head. Thanks in advance for any help! - [email protected]
