What is the largest and most sophisticated game for the O2?

Recommended Posts

With the hobby market making software as well as cartridges, what is the best, largest and most sophisticated/playable game cartridge available for the Odyssey 2?

The hardware support up to 12k of ROM, but I don't know if a Odyssey2 game ever reach that.

So the largest are 8kb games. Personally I think the most sophisticated game is Piece Puzzle Panic, a very well made tetris clone.

It redraws the sprites to make a bitmap and has "1 bit music" for game over screen. 

 

Here's a video:

I think "KTAA" (Kill The Attacking Aliens) is the only 12K game for Odyssey2 & Videopac.

It seems that "Helicopter Rescue" & "U.S. Rally" are 16K games (they work only on Videopac+)

I went to check price and availability of the Tetris clone for the O2, only to get a notice from my computer that it's best not to visit.

That's because you're trying to go to the encrypted form of his page which he signed with a self-signed cert.  Which basically means you have to trust him since a trusted third party is NOT vouching for the authenticity of his certificate (as is the case for proper certificates). Other than being self-signed the cert looks ok to me, so I wouldn't have a concern manually accepting it.  Or you can use the non-encrypted form (no "S" at the end of "http") of his price page here:

I purchased an O2 multi-cart just recently from Packrat, and I will say it was well worth the wait. I’ll be ordering from them again without hesitation.

Most sophisticated is probably Backgammon, considering it uses such tight timing tricks for the Videopac to work. I don’t think emulators have ever gotten accurate enough to run it.

I've ordered several items from PackRat and never had any problems.  He is a little slow but I received everything I ordered.
