ATARIMAX shipping question

Recommended Posts

So, I ordered Crystal Castles for the 5200 off of the ATARIMAX website. It's one of my favorite arcade games of all time, and although I own the 2600 version, it's much different from the arcade (due to obvious limitations.) I would have bought a copy for my 800XL, but the only one on eBay is like $80. I found the ATARIMAX website and was thrilled to see there was an 8-bit family conversion for the 5200! I ordered it right away.

 

Only problem is, I ordered it on June 22nd. Since then, I haven't gotten it. After a week, I grew concerned and actually emailed Steve himself. Unfortunately though, I haven't heard back from him. I know I paid for it, because the payment is on my debit card statement. I've been dying to play it, so so badly. But nothing.

 

I know Steve is trustworthy, and I'm not afraid I was ripped off. I was just curious if he takes a long time to ship things? I'm a patient person, but I seriously love Crystal Castles so much. All I want is to be able to play it on my 5200, and proudly display it on my shelf :(

I don't know about the 5200 Crystal Castles, but since it's not listed on AA, I'm guessing it's a homebrew. I know from ordering homebrews from AA that it takes a couple of weeks -- might be made-to-order.

 

I can tell you I've bought from Atarimax before; they're legit.

Steve is a really great guy, I have purchased a ColecoVision, Atari 5200 and Atari 8 bit Atarimax carts from him, sometimes it take some time if he is away on business or vacation with his family.

Yeah, AA doesn't have Crystal Castles. ATARIMAX and Good Deal Games has it for sale on their websites, and that's it. It's a homebrew conversion of the Atari 8-bit version. I actually ordered Zippy the Porcupine from the AA store 5 days ago, and haven't heard anything since besides the obvious Order Confirmation email. I didn't post this with the idea that ATARIMAX wasn't legit, but I appreciate further cementing it for the sake of my sanity! Haha

I had read a good amount of testimonials before I ordered, and with all the stuff he has on his website, I got good vibes immediately. Thanks for the info, if he's busy with family I hope he's having a great time. If it's business, well, then good luck to him ;)

Sorry for the double post, but it's for a good reason (I swear!)

 

Steve emailed me 3 hours ago (11:54 PM EST) letting me know that the item will ship through USPS in the morning!!! He said the item was back-ordered.

 

So a mod can now close, delete, or leave this thread to rot ;)
