Feeding My Atari #6: Many, Many Homebrew Games For The 2600 VCS And 7800 ProSystem




I received a massive package from Atari Age yesterday containing every game making up the 6 orders that had not shipped earlier. I also received a package from a seller on eBay containing a Homebrew that I've never seen for sale at Atari Age, Good Deal Games, or Packrat Video Games.

Here is a breakdown of every game that I've received over the past few days.

Atari 2600/Homebrews
2005 Mutigame Multicart

  • Hunchy
  • Jetman
  • M-4
  • Marble Jumper
  • Nightrider
  • Rocket Command
  • Zirconium

BerZerk: Voice Enhanced Version
Draconian (Boxed) Box being shipped separately
Elevators Amiss
Go Fish!
Juno First
Lady Bug I meant to order the Boxed Edition, but it slipped my mind when ordering
Phantom II / Pirate
Warring Worms: The Worms (Re)Turns

Atari 2600/Custom Reproductions
Gas Hog
River Patrol

Atari 7800/Homebrews
Bentley Bear's Crystal Quest (POKEY)
Lava Lamps & 8-Track Theatre via eBay

So far I've played Lava Lamps & 8-Track Theatre, Go Fish!, River Patrol, and Draconian, in that order. Go Fish! was hard for me to stop playing. It's just so addictive, but I finally moved on to River Patrol. This is a game that I've already enjoyed playing via emulation. An original cartridge is just too pricey for me. I played several games of it, but as it turned out my first game was my best. So I'll submit that score to http://highscore.com to be voted on. Draconian is really good too.

Here is a complete list of every Homebrew, Prototype Reproduction, etc. that I own (as of now) for the various Atari Gaming Platforms. All game titles followed by an Asterix (not the French comic character, but the * character) are currently not in the http://highscore.com database, but I have submitted requests for them, unless that game has no scoring component, in which case why bother? All game titles which are followed by a Plus Sign (+) have had my requests processed (within' the past 24-hours) and so are in the http://highscore.com database now. Most games are in the database. All games were purchased at Atari Age unless otherwise noted.
