Homebrew list of games- tell me about em

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I want to develop a post I made elsewhere and ask about a bunch of homebrews I've learned about only fairly recently. Damn there's so many, but I need some opinions! So here are the games that I want to know a bit more about. Have you played them? Are they any good?

 

Armageddon

Bagman

Bomb n Blast

Elevator Action

Digger

 

Hang On

Joust (pixelboy remix)

Gulkave

Light Grid Racing

Locomotion

 

Mindwalls

Nibbli

Ozma Wars

Rip Cord 

Track And Field

 

Star Force

Rip Cord

Side Trak

 

I told you it was a big list! If you've played any of those games, I'd really appreciate it if you could tell me what you think so I could look into maybe getting some of them, though I suspect the Pixelboy ones are mostly out of print. Give me your opinions NOW!! :)

IIRC, Bagman has a playability issue. You can search the forums here for the discussion.

 

I want to say that Side Trak was bugged on its initial release, but I may be mixing that up with another title.

 

People seem to really enjoy Rip Cord.

 

(Waitaminnit, those aren't my opinions at all, are they?)

Ah yes, that reminds me - Bagman. I did look at that. It was something to do with going up ladders, that it was a bit awkward. The thread kind of got heated. It looks good though, no question.

Armageddon - Well done missle command clone

Bagman - hard getting on off ladders but overall really well done

Bomb n Blast - fun tetris clone great music

Elevator Action -  seems fun barely tried it

Digger - love the pc game. This is a remake of it. And is very accurate. Plays like %20 too slow

 

Hang On - Good but not my type of game

Joust (pixelboy remix)  - This is one of the best home versions of joust

Gulkave - Good but not my type of game

Light Grid Racing - Good but not my type of game

Locomotion - 

 

Mindwalls - good revenge of doh style game

Nibbli - 

Ozma Wars - 

Rip Cord   - Fun but only 1 game screen

Track And Field - Really good but hard on the contoller

 

Star Force -

Side Trak - Good

Armageddon : good Missile command clone (playable with roller controller)

Bagman : very good , i personnally don't have issue with playability.  But i use joystick modified by yurkie with ball knob.  I guess with old standard joystick it could be more difficult.

Bomb n Blast : a very good tetris like game

Elevator Action : don't like to much that version  

Digger : love that game

 

Hang On  :  not fan of this adaptation but considering the limitation of the console  , it is not so bad

Joust (pixelboy remix) :  fun when 2 players

Gulkave :  Not my cup of tea , i have difficulty with this kind of game when the scrolling is not smooth.  (unfortunately on colecovision you have not real choice).

Light Grid Racing : did not try it yet

Locomotion : did not try it yet

 

Mindwalls : good arkanoid like game!

Nibbli :  i LOVE it . one of my favorite colecovision game.

Ozma Wars ; don't like

Rip Cord  : a  little Gem , i love it .

Track And Field : good with the track and field controller.

 

Star Force : same problem that gulkave for me  , the scrolling.  Otherwise good game

Side Trak : very well done, but not fan.
