Thanks! Got my shipping notification! Can't wait to get these and a Pro Controller.

They all went out Tuesday, so everyone in the US should have them by the end of the week, and hopefully destinations outside the US by the end of next week (although that is highly variable).  Hope you enjoy the games and the Pro Controller!

Can't wait to play this! Taking care not to rip the stickers that seal the plastic 😛

Thanks for all the AA stickers!

New games all arrived very safely in the UK and everything about them looks top quality as usual - Looking forward to getting them at Christmas when I can officially have them from the Mrs... Defender of the Crown (number 252) with them as well... Happy days.

I have to say, i'm very very impressed.

 

I just got my Jaguar recently, after years of flip flopping back and forth about whether I should or not (including when they went on clearance at Caldor for like $50 new back in the day). Anyways, joined the forum, saw the preorder thread, got excited, ordered...then somewhat regretted it based on the cost of the 2 games and a repro pro controller. I had buyers remorse at first, I've  gotten bad quality stuff from other forums, from etsy, you name it.

 

Once I got the package all that doubt vanished. The quality here is top notch, the boxes, the carts, everything about them, not to mention the games are fun and it gives new jag owners like me an option to buy new games that are GOOD for a reasonable price.

 

Thanks again, i'll be back for more for sure.

 

Also, the reproduction Pro Controller kicks butt!

Do you think these will ship before prg?

Certainly not... I placed a preorder. ;-)

 

Inbetween, I received my order. One of the green carts now adorns my little jag-collection.

 

My order also get caught by customs; I had to go to customs office and pay 20% duty...

 

 

The pro-controllers are brilliant - I´m glad I ordered them. 🙂

 

Thanks to all ATARIans involved in development and production,

So ended my first play through with a third place finish in league 1 behind Super Nashwan and Fatal Justice. My thumb is hanging off!

 

Game plays well as I remember, and works well with the jag pad.

 

Shame that the Amiga sound effects weren't included as the ST ones are nowhere near as good, especially miss the voice samples such as 'ice cream ice cream.

I have tried to play this game on other systems (Genesis and C64) and I cannot figure out the correct way to chose players and then which button is pass vs shoot. But I seem to get whooped everytime I play. I imagine the same outcome if I tried it on the Jaguar! But overall the game itself is a cool concept. Reminds me of the old American Gladiators show.

It looks like a mashup of American Gladiators and the movie Rollerball.  I plan on ordering Speedball 2 and Astrostorm with my tax refund.
