I may send it over, just to see you put them together and play Tap-A-Mole.

The buttons are nice and squishy on the Kid's Controller but it's hard to find where they are as they're flush with the plastic casing. The raised buttons on the Keyboard Controllers are WAY better suited for Tap-A-Mole as you can quickly touch type your way across the buttons by feel.

 

I hope he makes a 'Dizzy Mole' patch for the game as it'll give me another excuse to play it on the show, the fast pace was crazy!

I hope its Time Pilot. The 2600 needs a better version of Time Pilot.

It could certainly be done using Darrell's Draconian kernel. Might be a good question to ask him during his Friday spotlight. (I don't actually think the Coleco version is all that bad.)

They work great for the SynthCart too. BTW - have you ever "played" that on the show? I found it really addictive.

After Draconian, Galagaon and soon to be released Robotron...I know we could get more than a couple shots on the screen at one time. It’s also too easy to destroy the boss airships.

Nice! Thanks for sharing your custom overlay file👍

You're welcome! It's been so long since I've used my SynthCart, I'd have to look through the manual to see what all of that stuff means again. ;)

My guess as well.

A 2600 version with Trak-Ball support would be cool, although I do love the 5200 version.

Oooh, good question to pose to him! I'll include it for Friday. Thanks Nathan!

This would be great!

I mentioned it during the show yesterday, I hope he thinks about making a patch for the game! It really feels like a patch type game!

I haven't played that on a show as I couldn't quite figure out what was going on with the software in Stella because I didn't know that they used the keyboard controllers! Your overlays help A LOT, thanks for making them, I'll print them out and schedule it for an upcoming show. 🙂

If we can get Darrell to make Time Pilot, my son and I would be willing to test it. It’s one of our favorite coin-ops!

You really need the manual, too.

I couldn't sleep and woke up dreaming about birds, so although I'm still hoping for an updated version of Time Pilot, I'm going to have to go with a true Golden Oldie...Phoenix. I hope it includes the splash screen made up of birds, the horizontal scrolling background with stars, comets and planets and of course, the boss mother ship surrounded by her bird minions. Ah, that would be a sight.

 

I love the coin-op version and the 2600 version, while being pretty good in its own right, could certainly be improved upon. It does have beautiful box art. So there you have it. Phoenix. We can all dream right?

 

Going back to bed now.

No hints other than "golden age arcade"? 🙂

 

I'll guess Tempest.

That would be an exciting project. My guess, a more authentic Defender?

Only just found the time to watch the last show. There is another mole game, called Mole Hunter, but it is not very good.

 

And actually your are hunting mice. :)

The sash was brilliant. Clearly, Tanya had way too much fun putting that together. :D 

 

James needs to wear that at PRGE. I'd donate money to Stella to make that happen. (Make it a Stellathon 2 auction item!)

Yes he does. I will join you in donating money to this cause.
