As you have a list, why not just start from the top and work your way down? Although I would be interested to know your take on Bentley and Astro Blaster.

Funk vs. Atari - Man vs. Machine
Funkmaster V gets patriotic after election day and reminisces about America's greatest achievements: The moon landing, the 13th amendment, and the 1992 Dream Team- the best Olympic basketball team of all time. Can Funkmaster V surpass the Dream Team's 1992 win streak of 8 in this winner stays up style basketball game? Stay tuned to fyne owt. #basketbrawl #atari7800 #retrogaming

 I did Astro Blaster for ya buddy, but the real thing I wanted to say is that I absolutely love the hand drawn artwork for Astro Blaster. So cool.

 

Who did that?

Over on Atari 7800 Forever... we had ourselves a time kicking it with this homebrew "T:ME SALVO" and making fun of its terrible name. We made 3 whole pages for the game in fact:
1 ) T:ME Salvo Review: www.atari7800forever.com/tsr.html
What did we think of Mike Saarna's time traveling baby boy?
2) T:ME Salvo Cheats: Gameplay tips and how to play as Santa Clause!: www.atari7800forever.com/tsc.html
3) T:ME Salvo List of Rankings: www.atari7800forever.com/tsc2.html
Find out how many points you need to score to be called a McFly, a Time Lord, or a Major Titor... or some obscene name... I forget

Bunch of updates to the ole site in the last week, including taking a closer look at the interesting 32 in 1 cartridge...

32 unreal 7800 games you have never played before... or... maybe not.

i got one for ya already

Very nice!

 

Keep those reviews coming!

As to graphics, I may have given it a higher score than you.

 

The drawback is only 2 frames per moving object/character.

 

The good sides are: 12 colour sprites, and multiple parallaxes in arcade-quality colour in the backdrops. (But you mentioned the awesome backdrops... so).

 

Agreed, its one of the best titles for the still ongoing Atari 7800.

 

Note: I love all sorts of platform games: Wonderboy 1-5, Ghost n Goblins, Mario 1-10 (or whatever the number is by now), Castlevania-series, Sonic (2D), Scrapyard Dog 7800 and Lynx (tremendous), etc etc ... I’m a platform-game-lover, but BBCQ was very impressive for an 8 bit system... (particulary the backdrops).

I probably have a better NTSC TV than you: Bentley Bear says either ‘Oh No!’ or ‘Bye!’ or ‘#, ?!’ when he dies...

i've wondered about Travi the Traveler thing though. Is it even a playable game?

No.  Original Travi is a three screens demo cart.  The screens are changed by pressing the fire button. First screen is the title/intro screen. Press the fire button and it brings up the second screen, a picture of Travi.  A third press of the fire button shows a map of the world.

 

It likes (liked?) to travel.

Liked I think, seem to remember it went "missing" 

I thought it was found and was planning another trip (Circa 2009).

Unsure if that ever came to fruition.

 

Multiple copies were made ~six months after the original one took off on its travels.

 

For those multiple copies, a game (Hack of Gosub for the 2600) was added instead of the 3 screen demo of the original.  It's also really a 2600 ROM though, along the lines of "Save Mary" being 'for the 7800' without needing any of the latter's memory requirements. It's not accessing MARIA for graphics.  It's all TIA with a small footprint 4K:

It's playable (Press Reset to start).  Travi continues to glide/float in the last direction it was pressed in without stopping...

 

image.png.5b6c3a59df7e33cdc912616d5999a5dd.png

 

...Travi needs to reach that rectangle without touching the walls...

Travi evidently went from a Mogwai to a Gremlin while visiting Cousin Vinnie.
