Me neither.

 

Anyway, we're down to the last 100 copies of the Atari 7800 version. If you've been holding off on ordering it might be time to reconsider.

I think I figured it out. I think what was being suggested was that the color tint wheel was all that needed adjusting. But the issue was way more than that. The issue specifically was that the previous AV mod in place simply drives the chroma too hot as I had the same issues with it along with a few others when I had the same AV mod in my personal 7800 about 4 years ago. I don't even think I had to adjust the color trimmers because when I do, I usually put a line of nail polish over them to both mark where they were and as cheap loc-tite and to hold them in position.

 

Besides, the trimmer being pointed to is in fact for the 2600 color adjustment not the 7800 and Rikki and Vikki is very much a 7800 game!

It was just a joke about the color pot looking like a yelling face. (See pareidolia.)

 

Personally I think this sort of posting behavior is just shocking...

That crap on the left side of the trimmer wheel is part of the original glue that was used to secure them in place from the factory adjustments. It isn't damaged just old cruddy glue stuck to the plastic wheel.

That's awesome. I know this hasn't turned out the way that you'd hoped, but I hope you sell out of the rest quickly. I bought another copy a few months ago and sent it off to a friend across the country who just bought a 7800. What a showpiece for the system!

I hope so too - gotta use all these shelves to catalog my toilet paper hoard.

 

Again, despite the poor digital sales it has been really cool to see the game recommended as part of a 7800 starter pack - or sell the console outright to players who would not have considered it before.

One of the main reasons I got an Atari 7800 was for Rikki & Vikki, all together playing Rikki on the 7800, plus the controller and the 7800 itself, it came to $230ish.

Worth it

Finally ordered a copy of this.  It’s a pity it hasn’t sold as well as hoped for.

 

It's still one of the most selling homebrews for the 7800 ever from what I gather.

It’s a really, really cool contemporary retro-game-piece, a million times better than most of the IOS-pseudo/faux- retro-games.

 

Looks fantastic and sounds like a dream.

 

A bit hard though, and I’m used to GnG-arcade or on the NES... 😎😋

Together with Pacman-Collection and Bentley Bears Crystal Quest, it deserves to be a 7800/retro-game best-seller...

I had been holding off on ordering a copy since I'm still looking for a 7800 system to play it on (finding one with a really clean looking chrome strip up to my OCD condition standards is proving difficult these days), but Rikki & Vikki along with Baby Pac-Man were the two big games that made me want to get back into the 7800 after a couple years without one so I just put in my order tonight to make sure I don't miss out on it. I'll be really looking forward to getting my copy of Rikki & Vikki in the mail and giving it a try when I do eventually find a nice looking 7800 to play it on! :)

Still need to get around to this, but bills bills bills... hopefully won't sell out. Any chance of a stock update? ;)

Rikki & Vikki is difficult and while I'm severely biased as its lead - Ghosts 'n Goblins is entirely its own echelon of cruel. Ghouls 'n Ghosts is much closer to the tuning here.

There's 83 copies left, moving at a fantastically medium speed. But once these are gone the digital version won't be ;) .

My copy arrived yesterday (new delivery speeds due to Covid-19), and looks good.  I have to bust out a real 7800 to play it on, and haven’t got around to that yet.

Got mine yesterday, this game is amazing. I might order another one, I don't know, just in case mine gets submerged in liquids or something... Anyways, yes, fantastic game!

Just noticed this game is currently part of the Steam Summer Sale, with a very steep discount. If you haven't played this before, I highly recommend purchasing it now for a mere pittance, although honestly it's worth so much more than even the full non-sale price.

I was here to do the same thing and promote this. Great game if you don't have it or only have it on cart get it on Steam now! Worth it!
