To avoid confusion about when the rounds end, I did it the minute Thursday comes (late Wednesday night) instead of waiting up til early Friday morn being late Thursday, I've decided to end the round at Noon on Thursday from here on

Sorry for my lack of participation lately...my main computer went down May 1 and I had to rob my second computer of parts just to get it back working again. Since then I've lost a hard disk and a video card and am waiting on a few items before both are fully functional again.

I'm assuming "was" is a typo, play a game that HAS a bug...

 

I played Yars' Revenge (also a bug game :-D ) which has an easter egg.

for some reason I failed to activate the easter egg today, though I have never had trouble doing it before. I may be wrong, but I think it still counts because it says to play a game that has a hidden bug, tell what it is -- doesn't say find the bug & get a screenshot of it... but I will understand if that was what you meant CG!

 

telling what it is... the easter egg in Yars' Revenge is the programmer's initials forward and backward: HSWWSH. it appears when your Yar loiters on the vertical black line after sniping the flying Qotile with your Zorlon Cannon. activating the easter egg screen also ends your game. I have no idea why it didn't work for me this time, but here is what it looks like:

Bug game Hero HERO1984Activision_zps8765fe9e.png

 

Bug (easter egg game) Metal Gear (NES) - In this game it's possible to have passwords that will get you stuck in the game. One password is very ironic F***M E1111 11111 11111 11111.

It starts you at the end with nothing to defeat the boss with, so in sense you are ****ed

Bonus:

Bug (easter egg game) - Adventure (Atari 2600)

 

The "bug" being that you find the secret item/dot and place it in the correct hallway, along with a couple other items. This allows one to pass through the barrier and view the game designer's name in the secret room.
