We are getting close to the end.

 

Next week (Most Likely Thursday) I will post the Homebrew games.

These will be 3 games that have never been played in the HSC and give a brief spotlight on some Homebrews.

It gives us a chance to support the Atari2600 Homebrew creators!

 

It will be a 2 week competition!

 

In the meantime, enjoy (at least try to enjoy) these hard Spider Games.

See, even Spider-Man thinks it's hard.

Very clever to write an Amidar clone off as a spider game😄.

Man, and I have Amidar, dang. But since we're practically playing it...

Spiderdroid info here 

https://www.mobygames.com/game/atari-2600/spiderdroid





Review from woodgrainwonderland.com

Spiderdroid (Froggo, 1987)

Well, I got duped again. Spiderdroid is a full-on hack of Parker Brothers’ Amidar and not a particularly good one at that. The control is particularly sluggish and inaccurate (the original wasn’t great on those counts, either, but they’re even worse here). Otherwise, just about everything else is the same, right down to the style of the score counter. The Froggo/Sancho group of companies were notorious for releasing poor games but at least they were original content most of the time – I never thought they would stoop to outright theft. I rated Parker Brothers’ Amidar a C+ but Spiderdroid gets an F for ethical reasons.

Thanks for the quote. I've actually been thinking about dusting off the old blog again.

Yes, Cortex, same. But rules are rules, so...

Spider-Man-2,300

Not even a third of my PB, I don't think, just wanted to get a score up.

I may have recommended this game, kinda regretting it now...

:P

Spiderdroid-4,169

I've played this before, but not Amidar(I, uh, usually check out games with "Spider" in the title...), I think my PB is higher, on BB, but I just played a little freestyle to get on the board, I'll dig in some more soon.

Lol, since we are on "Spiders", and have some South American competitors here, just thought I'd throw this out there...

 

I'm so jealous of you Guys.

Want an expensive Tarantula collection?

Just go outside and find it!!!

:D

 

That's probably not exactly correct, but I do specialize in Tarantulas that typically occur in South America, "Avicularia" species(pink-toes)!

 

This is technically off-topic, BTW, as Tarantulas are not "True Spiders".

(Long story, you'll have to look that up.).
