Selfishly I want Demon Attack first but this response I absolutely agree with. I can wait for it if it means differentiating a bit from Astrosmash and the like :)

 

1. Microsurgeon

2. Beauty and the Beast

3. Demon Attack

I love Moon Cresta !!

Give me your list in order of those 3... of which ones you would like to see first.

 

Mine is Microsurgeon, Beauty and the Beast and then Demon Attack.

Mostly because Microsurgeon is such a unique experience and game compared to others we have in our line-up.  But it will be a little more 2.5D shooter than the original.

 

We are thinking of cool ways to make Beauty and the Beast have more depth.  Things like different style buildings, more enemies and things to get in the way, reverse Elevator Action vibes but with window cleaning platforms instead of elevators, etc.

Demon Attack will be Phoenix, Galaga/Galaxian, Gorf, etc. on steroids.

 

:)

 

What are your thoughts?
 

 

I would like

 

Beauty and the Beast, Microsurgeon, and Demon Attack. Most likely, I’ll purchase all of them eventually.

It’s a tough call, but of the three Imagic titles presented I think I’d like to see Microsurgeon first. Then Beauty and the Beast, then Demon Attack. But I’ll be frank and say flat out I’ll take them in any order they come out!

The latest build of Astrosmash now includes the option to choose a pilot for your Astroblaster in Campaign Mode.

Musk FTW! :cool::thumbsup:

What are the chances that they will all be physical releases? (Fingers crossed about paying homage to the Imagic Packaging).

It's funny that in OG Intellivision favorite game order it would be Demon Attack, Beauty and the Beast and Microsurgeon. However for Amico games I am going the opposite: Microsurgeon (I can see a lot of coop game play opportunities and maybe even a little edutainment too), Beauty and the Beast (we don't have a platform progression game yet, ala Donkey Kong) and then Demon Attack (already a few space shooters for the Amico, although this one deserved the remake to get a great, extended Galaga type title to help round out that category).


I was thinking the exact same thing!  I think the only Imagic game I played more than Demon Attack was Ice Trek.

Quartet Quartet | Retro Gamer

This game would be good for Amico.  It's 1 to 4 players.  I've never heard of this game before but looks cool.

Quartet is pretty decent. There is also a variant of it called Quartet 2 that reduces the player count to 2 people, probably for arcade operators to save space, but I think it's completely identical otherwise. I think both versions are relatively rare, but there are a few home ports available.

Sega's Quartet reminds me of Capcom's Forgotten Worlds. Although I never remember playing or even seeing this game in the arcades. Played the heck out of it on the Sega Genesis. Good memories with this one. Really fun with 2 players.

Domanda per tutti qui!

Aggiungeremo alcune classiche box art Intellivision al negozio di merchandising.

Domanda 1: senza materiale con licenza, quale box art vorresti vedere? Sicuramente voglio che l'arte sia bella.
In questo momento ho sulla mia lista:

 

Night Stalker
Astrosmash
Squalo! Squalo!
SNAFU
Star Strike
Utopia

Cos'altro? (tieni presente ... niente licenze. Ciò include cose come Tron, D&D, Burgertime, Imagic, Pitfall, ecc.)
 
Domanda 2: vorresti che la dimensione dell'immagine fosse la dimensione esatta della scatola? (circa 8 pollici di lunghezza)
Oppure ... preferiresti uno stile più grande come questo:

Per favore fammi sapere cosa pensi.
 
Grazie!!
 
 

Triple action cannot be missed.The large image is certainly beautiful, perhaps the size of the original box can fit 4 games on the same shirt and all should be of the same genre or have something in common, for example sports, platformers, spaceships, etc.  .

Forgotten Worlds also has an excellent PC Engine port that I think came with the Avenue Pad 3 controller.

We have an Argos card so it’s buy now pay in 6 months, but I think normally you would pay up front.

For people paying up-front, the Amico is a bit discounted at Game Collection.
239 instead of 249, and they offer to refund the difference if the price drops.

I like that idea.  It would be cool.  You could have 2 games on the top and 2 on the bottom.  They would be just large enough for all of them to fit.

Here is a good video on the subject of shortages from a Canadian youtuber that has slightly more subscribers than OEB Pete. A smidge. Overall a good video. Good explanation as to what is happening all across the industries. Plus he is helping out "gamers". And a way to help out local businesses to boot.

Remember us little people when you get to that number of subscribers Pete!!!!!

And it isn't just the CPUs, it is many electronic components: https://blog.matric.com/electronic-component-shortages-update

 

Heck even foam (for like couches and car seats) is in short supply: https://news.yahoo.com/foam-shortage-affecting-furniture-automotive-123500451.html

 

In fact, the furniture industry is facing long delays just generally. I have been waiting on a kitchen side board for 5+ months and it keeps getting pushed out another month every month and I am not the only one: https://www.wearegreenbay.com/from-the-local-5-digital-desk/furniture-stores-seeing-long-delays-on-product-due-to-covid-19/
