I love watching ZeroPage Homebrew. Seeing you guys play homebrews and give feedback is fun to watch and also a great motivation to try and turn one of my lousy ideas into an actual game. Keep up the good work! 😃

 

Just thought of a few interesting games you haven't played on the show yet:

 

Space Battle by Dave Neuman:

Thanks so much @Impaler_26 for watching ZeroPage Homebrew! I love playing all these new and old homebrew that some people may not be aware of!

 

Thanks for all the suggestions for games, we're always looking for more great games for the show! I'll check them out!

We definitely will, can't wait to start them! Hmm... who to spotlight first... somebody we've never talked to yet I think!

By the way, that’s one sweet Galaga shadow box.👍

Yep, that's a great idea. Developer Spotlights like Classic Gamer74's video about Edward Smith would be a nice addition to ZPH:

Another great show today guys.  Sorry I wasn't able to chat much, had it running in the background while I worked. 

 

James, nice to see that the boys lent you a copy of Boulder Dash to play on the show.  This game is quite the achievement as far as games go for the 2600.  It was my personal holy grail for a long time.  I'm very happy with my purchase.  

 

My thanks to @Andrew Davie, @Thomas Jentzsch and @Albert for bringing this to our beloved 2600.:thumbsup:

Thank you so much, we enjoyed today's show a lot as well!

 

I'm really looking forward to playing Boulder Dash on an upcoming show. It was incredible of Andrew, Thomas and Albert to be able to get me a copy to play on the show. 🙂

Nitpicking BTW: The 'X' in "X256" should be in lower case. It is meant to be used as multiplier character. 😏

I'm going to put full blame on the fonts this time. ;-)

Nice tries on Boulder Dash's cave D. Since I suppose you want to find out yourself, I won't tell you how to kill the butterflies easily. 😆 

 

BTW: Cave C is the one I like least.

Thanks Thomas! Cave C is definitely not fun as it's basically a race against the clock, booooo!!

 

If I don't manage to figure out an easy way to defeat the butterflies on my next attempt at it I'll be looking for hints.

One free hint: The butterflies follow the walls in a well defined way.

Do you like playing with those Epyx joysticks?  I've got a pair packed up that I haven't used for quite a few years.  I remember thinking that the micro-switches felt weird and that it was a very noisy stick to use.  Maybe I should dig it out and try it again.  Who knows, maybe my tastes have changed in my old age?  :)

I like Epyx for 4-way games, if those games don’t have heavy button use. Micro-switches have a very fast, positive feedback of being activated.

I only play H.E.R.O. with my 500XJ controller.  I think it provides excellent control.

They're extremely noisy and the button is in an very awkward position BUT... they are incredible for games that require precision movement and very little button pressing. The feel of the base in your hand is very ergonomic as well.

Overall my go to for 99% of games is the Genesis Arcade Power Stick. I'm very sad that one of them died on me recently so I'll have to pick another one up somewhere.
