What 5200 games are you playing right now?

Recommended Posts

Got an Atari Max SD Cart in the mail yesterday,been enjoying these three a whole lot.

 

Defender

Blaster

Journey to the planet.

 

Blaster just blows my mind with what the 5200 is doing here. Just shocking that this never released at retail on the 5200,but yeah I guess the game crash really was that bad for it to be shelved. You sorta wonder what might have happened if a game like this had released on the system as a packin along with a better controller thrown in as well.

 

Journey to the planet is a surprising game with some good depth,exploration and shooting mechanics. The graphics have a cool charm to them too. Game has abit of a cool eerie feel with all the barren, isolated plants to explore So glad that 800XL games can be ported over to the system like this. Blows my mind what the game is doing.

 

Defender I started playing and its so much better than the rotten Atari 2600 original from eons ago. The vector visuals in the 5200 version along with all the special effects and stuff on screen is one hell of a fine moment for the 5200. Stand up and take a bow big guy. Game is freaking beautiful. Addicting as hell too.

Its one of those "just more more game" marathons.

Missile Command+

 

Pretty cool to have all three bases. Also, the 8bit conversion is more challenging than the standard 5200 cart...at least it is for me.

Lots and lots of PacMan Arcade.

Gaining very high scores now that I have a masterplay clone.

Whereas I Use to score around 40,000. Now with the masterplay I'm scoring very close to 100,000

River Raid (sorry guys - I forgot to record and add audio in this video)

 

One of my favorite games. Love the 2600 version..didn't think they could make it better, but IMO, they did.

Played some Star Trek and Moon Patrol last night.

Using a master play clone I was able to get an all time high score in Moon Patrol of 55,200

Sector R on the advanced setting is one nasty piece of difficulty though. :-o :twisted:
