ALIEN GREED 4 - for the Atari 2600 - reserve your cartridge today!

Recommended Posts

The winning artwork for the label for AG4 has been chosen! It was submitted by Brad Nuce (a.k.a. ManCaveArcade).

He will receive a free game cartridge of ALIEN GREED 4!

 

Brad is also creating the box for Alien Greed 4. With Brad working on both the label and the box,

the whole package is destined to be awesome!

 

Brad designed a special box for me for MEAN SANTA and I think it his work is fantastic.

I am happy to have Brad contributing to this project.

 

More details soon!

Please note that we have made a change to the box offer.

 

Please note: Boxes will be NOT availble through ManCaveArcade in the future. for anyone, but the price will be $20 for the box alone and it will be slightly different.

 

There are still 5 boxed cartridges left.

 

thanks

I am setting a goal of having everything ready and to accept payments and ship ALIEN GREED 4 on Friday, June 1, 2012.

 

I have the boxes (picture posted above) completed and now the cartridges have been completed

 

Here is a picture of all 50:

So what I left to do is complete the manual and a few special pack-in items.

 

Time for me to get back to work on this...

The shipping cost for a boxed game ( #1-40 ) shipped anywhere in the USA is $4

If you are outside the USA, I will need to get you a quote for shipping.

 

The shipping cost for a loose game ( #41-50 ) shipped anywhere in the USA is $2

 

I am happy to report that there is a special 10 page printed newsletter of the 2600 CONNECTION ( Special issue June 2012) that comes along with the game.

 

There are still a few loose cartridges available.

 

Send me a private message if you are interested. I don't expect these to last long.

 

thank you,

Game looks pretty neat but those laminated boxes really don't do it for me. I know alot of others that prefer standard cardboard also FWIW. Nice package you

made there none the less.

The nice thing about the laminated boxes is that they will never tear or rip or crease. Never really thought about that until Brad brought that to my attention.

You can take the game out and put it back in a thousand times and the the box is going to endure the handling. It will also endure water (or coffee or any

spilled drink for that matter.) So I see the advantages. I have spoken to Brad about a non-laminated version of his boxes and then putting one of those clear plastic

"keep 'em minty" cases around the box. Have you seen those? Then the problem is it becomes more of a collector's showpiece though.

You have to open the keep 'em minty case and then take out the box and then open up the box and then get the game.

So I can see both sides of the argument here. I guess it comes down to personal preference. I never really placed a high priority on the boxes, but now I see the value in them. They are neat, especially if you display your collection of Atari 2600 games on a bookshelf for example...
