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

Recommended Posts

 

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!

 

And the gameplay of Amidar.

Trying to. Playfield scrolling was today's effort, still learning what I can and can't relate directly to 7800 basic from other languages.

I'd love to see Time Pilot with the 2600 driving controller as an optional input.

Ah, yes...Donkey Kong 3 - Dai Gyakushuu under the Sharp X1. More of a sequel than a port of the Arcade original DK 3. Stanley returns, only one (invisible) platform though, and the insects are more Galaga-ish in approach, complete with an Alien/ET backdrop theme. Too early to call X-Files, but it is sort of Donkey Kong meets the X-Files vibe. At least someone should be questioning how DK must be hit square in the butt to win. And are those parachutes 'borrowed' from Balloon Fight? :P

Hopefully the other two ports will be distributed publicly, someday. ;)

Dragon Buster (Which was referenced in Tales of Legendia)

The first game with Double Jumping, a life bar, and branching paths. However, I'd add the improved controls of the NES/Famicom version, the title screen art of the MSX version, and the intro of the PC-8801 version.

+1 for Time Pilot!

+2! That one's been on top of my list of hoped-for ports since I first found out about the 7800 homebrew scene.
