Haunted Adventure Trilogy.

Sadly I don't own that cartridge and it hasn't been posted by the developer @atwwong in binary form (as far as I'm aware). It's still available in the AtariAge store, so maybe next time, but we'll probably have to pass on that game for at least this year.

I would think that Unholy would be a good fit. 

Good suggestion! If we don't finish it on Tuesday (we have the EXCLUSIVE FINAL BUILD next show!), we'll schedule it again for the Halloween episode, it has an incredibly creepy mood to it with the awesome lightning, enemies and blood soaked rooms.

@ZeroPage Homebrew James, you mentioned a patch for Rally Racer during yesterday’s stream. I don’t see any mention of the rules on the Morework Games site. Do you know what they are?

You bet, here's a link to the announcement on their FB page.

 

To get the patch you have to reach 210 miles at the end of the third race or 240 miles on the podium on stage 4 (Rocky Trail). Looks like a number of people have already posted their patch scores so it looks fairly achievable.

 

They posted two possible end dates of 60 days or Christmas, which would be either Dec 7 or Dec 25, so there's plenty of time to submit your score!

Thank you.

Sounds like the top few drivers (pilots, as they call them) will get a surprise patch, with a similar look to the "A New Marauder" patch.

I finally was able to watch the first part of the Friday show (BTW: I am very glad to have it back).

 

Some comments regarding the coming 3rd ZPH awards: 

  • I like that you plan to differentiate between original and non-original games. However I can foresee some discussions in which category certain games belong. Therefore I suggest that some clear cut rules are defined and written down.
  • IMO the packaging category should be open for all platforms in the competition. Why 2600 only here?
  • Also, have you refined the rules regarding vote manipulation? (e.g. AA member for at least n-weeks/months, n posts minimum etc.)

Oh definitely, we'll make sure there is nothing ambiguous to the definition of original and non-original games.

Good question, I'm not very keen on mixing different platforms together for the same award but this may change in future years. We've added another category to the 7800 realm this year due to the large number of 7800 WIPs so if there are enough physical releases from other platforms we may add more packaging awards!

Yes, after last year we established some very good rules that should dissuade vote manipulations. We'll also make sure everyone is VERY clear about the rules so they're not tempted to try.

I can fully understand for all other categories, where the technology plays a major role. But for packaging, the specs are all identical. So IMO they all belong into the same competition.

hi James, have you considered a one episode special as a departure from your standard formula, for your personal ranking of top 20-30 (or maybe more if impossible to choose?) of homebrew Atari 2600 games?

 

I would love to see an episode like that, where you could count down to #1 by either playing or showing some of your memorable moments with each of these games, or share some background etc. (possibilities are endless ;) ).

 

Just a thought, otherwise really enjoying the ‚show’ keep up a good work!

Thanks so much @mika15! That's a great suggestion and I've wanted to do a 'Favourite' show for quite a while now. I can see doing one when there's short lull in releases and there's probably one coming up soon. I like your suggestion of memorable moments, the secret reveal of Galagon comes to mind for that!

 

I'll add it to my 'Future Episodes' and start adding to the list as I remember great games. 🙂
