What 9918 games do you wish could be ported to TI-99?

Recommended Posts

There's a pretty large library of games with 9918 graphics (and often SN76489 sound) which have never gotten a TI-99 release.  Games for SG-1000/SC-3000, MSX1, Colecovision/ADAM, etc.  So generally Z80 based systems.  What games with ready-to-go 9918 graphics (and possibly SN76489 sound) do you wish could get a TI-99 port?

For me, for example, Konami's Antarctic Adventure is one of these.  But I'm a big fan of games that pull off an "into the screen" motion/perspective illusion on limited hardware (Buck Rogers, etc.)

Bosconian!  I have this cartridge for my MSX machines, but always wanted it on the TI.  And the TI voice synthesizer would be a natural for the in-game speech as well.

Did you ever see the sequel? That pulled off some seriously impressive graphics...

 

 

(Play is on an MSX2 but it is 9918A graphics - I've successfully run it in Classic99's Phoenix hack ;) )

I have been thinking about doing something similar by pre-recording a number of animation sequences and storing them on a large ROM cart.

Door Door.  Someone did a ColecoVision port of it, I believe.  I can't find the video offhand.

 

Edit: Here it is:

Reminds me of Frantic Freddie. Played it somewhat on the Amiga. Here's a C64 version (II). Quite portable. ;)

The port is on a Tomy Tutor/Pyuuta, so the code is 9995/9918A based. Last I heard, the author hasn't released the source code for it though.

Was a rom for it ever released? That would be fun to play!

It would be good to find a copy of the Door Door program for the Pyuuta (and the tweaked version that runs on a Tomy Tutor). It seems that the only places that had it online are gone. . .the files were on sites made by @tanam1972. He is still here though, so he may be able to tell us more.

I've always thought "Venture" on the ColecoVision would be a nice game for the Texas ....... :)
