 Not sure if this one has been brought up here, but I remember Stop Thief being a fun one as well.

 

With the Amico controller touch screen and speaker, this looks like a perfect fit. 

 

 

Hopefully. Restoration Games makes a new version which I have as well as Fireball Island. Return to Dark Tower is coming out soon hopefully as well. I’d love to see these games on Amico as I’ve said before.

We had this game as a kid.  My sister got it one year. It was a lot of fun.  Hearing the sound effects brought back some fun memories.   Would love to see these and the others you posted.  I'm tired of video games, would be great to see the console interact like a Dungeon Master or a guide to some great games that require your imagination to grow.

 

So far the game I'm looking forward to most is Bomb Squad.  That sounds like a game that will require a lot of thought and interaction...something lost in today's over-stimulating, repetitive games...shoot, throw grenade, get power-up, unlock secret...blah..blah...blah.. blah

I don't think Tommy answered this yet.  I didn't suggest this game.  Lol.  It was Jeff who did.

That’s true but I haven’t heard a response about any of my suggestions in regards to the Restoration Games Board Games. Hopefully, they will be looked at.

My order from the IE shop finally arrived today.  But the shirt is the wrong size.  Lol. Now I have to exchange it.  

well if its a size too small , then its really retro since we all hulk out of our actually old  IE shirts from yesteryear.  :)

That brought me back to one of my favorite toys - Ricochet Racers... (Shot Racer in Japan).  Not sure if this toy would fly today. Funny thing - a Nintendo product.  Does anyone else remember this?

Update:

My order from IE was able to be exchanged.  I sent back the wrong size shirt. They're sending the right one.  I'm glad it all worked out in the end.  Hopefully next time I don't mess up.  Lol.  Live and learn I guess.  When buying clothes online, it can be tricky.  Because all you have is a picture.  It's not like you can walk into a retail store and be able to see it in person.  Maybe IE will one day have physical stores.  Wouldn't that be something?

yep, I never had em but some of my neighbors did. I was lucky to grow up on a street with a ton of kids all around from the same age group.(Still friends with some of them to this very day) so even if you didnt have a specific toy, someone around the neighborhood probably had it.

I had a set with the silver dollar target that rolled back and forth on the curved ramp. Cars and guns, good combination.

Ok I have an idea about the games alway having support in the future and how the physical media could work without a server.  And I know its out there but I wanted to say it anyways. 

If there is at least 1 console in the world connected to the internet with the game you want in it could it be possible that your Amico could connect to it and copy the code to too your console.  Basically all the Amicos are connected for this purpose? Allowing the games to be accessible.

that would likely allow for runaway piracy. Systems dont need to be connected to the internet for games to be played.  The only reason you need internet is for the initial download and or optional leader boards. So internet isnt needed. These arent server based games, IE could go out of business ( god forbid) but your amico will still run any and all games you have on your amico until it turns into a doorstop.  as far as 30 years down the road, games that old I would think will be available via many different ways just as they are today. Plus face it, how many of us have 30 viable years left?

Well wasn't referring to online play. Jist that there was something discussed about selling your game and it being physical media but that rfid like in the amiibos this wouldn't be. So my thought was what if you decided to sell your game and the digital code was extracted from my console and placed in another. Leave one console and loading into another.  Could the code be written that when a game is sold its directly downloaded from the Amico it was the sold from that sellers console?

If we get a volleyball game on Amico, perhaps it could use motion controls. 

motion controls I think would make a game like Badminton more fun than it usually is. Hell maybe they could combo it up with Corn Hole, then we could all try to keep a straight face when Tommy would have to talk about Corn Holes and Shuttle cocks at the same time.  :)

Never heard of this one.  It looks cool.  I like the sound effects and music.  Hopefully it comes to Amico.

You could call it Moon Patrol 2: Horizon. Y'know, for brand recognition! ;)
