Of your 2600 collection, how many are Homebrews & Repros?

Recommended Posts

I have most of the original released titles, minus a dozen or so (Eli's Ladder, Ari Raid, Video Life, etc.), and I think I have all the homebrew/repros I know about. I'll have to count them some time. :D

Of my 2600 collection, I'd say about 20-25% are homebrews & repros.

 

More are repros of unfinished and unreleased games for the sake of completing the company. EXAMPLE: Alligator People, Entity, Save the Whales, Lasercade, Meltdown, Planet of the Apes, & Pick Up to complete 20th Century. Etc, etc.

 

But I have to agree with jetset. The homebrews that have been released for the 2600 are AMAZING. Chunkout is a great game.

 

How do you classify the CPUWIZ double enders? Repros (existing titles) or homebrew (the nature of being a double ender)? ;)

I had maybe 200 carts. The number has been dropping, as I give / sell some of them over time. A few homebrews, so maybe 150:4?

 

I want a lot more of the homebrew titles. Repros are no big deal to me.

 

The part about home brew gaming that is great is the authors generally tell the story of the development, can be reached for commentary and questions, and the quality of production!! It's really fun to get the thing, play it, maybe show it off (which I always love to do), then write the author a note and talk about it a bit. Damn cool in my book.

I have 6 homebrews and every one of them is fun to play with the exception of Misadventures Revisited. It is not too hard after you finally figure out the patterns, but the beginning sucks as you are devoured by a dragon when you start the game.

I have probably around 15 newer carts. 4 are repros of protos or limited release games, the rest are homebrews.
