Arcade Games You'd Like To See Ported To The Atari 7800

Recommended Posts

Just thought of this one: Baby Pac Man

 

This could go one of two ways.

1. Just hack the Baby Pac Man mazes into an existing Pac Man game and forego the pinball aspect.

2. Or get ambitious and make a video pinball screen to take the place of the arcade cabinet's physical pinball table.

 

This would be a great game to have. I'd agree that creating two screens, one of the maze and one with pinball table, would be great.

A few more platformers for the Atari 7800 would be fun.

 

How about Wiz from Seibu Kaihatsu?

Here's one that might be a challenge - Congo Bongo, Sega, 1983

Pretty much every port of this game to both consoles and computers stinks worse than my dirty socks. Since the 7800 could handle a 3/4 isometric perspective (Desert Falcon), why not try a port of this title?

@yell0w_lantern:

If Chiller does get ported to the 7800, it should have some extra levels. (Dining room, crypt, tower, and armory just to name a few.)

 

By the way, I'm still planning out a Rastan clone called "The Agathodaimon."

It would definitely be interesting to see how a 7800 version would play/look of Congo Bongo.

Not much to add at this point,...but like I say ANY PINBALL game...

 

If you were to convert a pinball game, Almost ANY will do, to Raster graphics ...I'm not sure if what I'm suggesting is perfectly on topic or not,...But what I do know is that if you did, Everybody will love you! And you will become a New Hero to the 7800 Crowd and Also I will buy you a beer!

 

So...you know,....Get to it!!! :)

I love Congo Bongo, so here is my mockup :) :

I'd love to see the remaining 'classic' Pac-Man games get a 7800 port if for no other reason than to make it the definitive Pac-Man home console. :)

 

The Pac-Man Collection, Jr Pac_man and Super Pac-Man are all very classy. It would be lovely to have Pac and Pal, Pac-Land and Pac Mania with the same level of care.

 

There's also a video of a supposed NES port of Pac-Man CE on Youtube. Something like that would be super cool.

 

Oh, and a nice version of Lady Bug wouldn't go amiss either! :P

Pac-Mania... boo, hiss! :thumbsdown: :grin:

 

 

How about Professor Pac-Man instead? :rolling:

I can't believe people actually like that POS game Pac-Mania. The 7800 doesn't have a pinball game, so I'll give a here-here to Baby Pac.

I've always enjoyed that POS game Pac-Mania... No accounting for taste, I suppose. ;)

 

But, yeah, Professor Pac-Man is also welcome, as far as I'm concerned. The more, the merrier!

Since we're dreaming... Baby Pac with a video pinball screen FTW! :love:

 

And the NES had a decent version of Pinbot, so should the 7800. :grin:

NES Pinbot is *awesome*. I loved how they handled the scrolling by keeping the bottom, flipper part of the table on screen at all times. One of my very favorite video pinball games, although I sold my NES collection a year or two ago so I haven't played it in a while.

Is it just me or do 2 of the characters in the poster above look disturbingly like Jumpman/Mario (with a red boxing glove instead of a hat) and Donkey Kong (holding Jumpman's hammer)! And judging by the attached gameplay video, it appears there are fireballs/foxes that chase the Jumpman-like character also!
