One more day for a homebrew suggestion; then i'll post the next event in Alpine Games.  Anyone got anything they want to play? 

My suggestions:



Microvaders (Easter egg in Lexis)

A Bug’s Trip

Raid on Tricity


Sadly a lot of awesome recent homebrew does not have scores or has a maximum/minimum score.

Maybe we could do @karri‘s Bathman? Winning the game is pretty challenging so the lowest score wins. We could also rank people who beat it in order of beating it.

@Fadest, would it be a fair fight between people using the rom and people using the cartridge, score wise? I like having options that don’t make people fork out money or exclude people without a real Lynx of their own. Or might it be possible to make Redux temporarily available on Argon?

There are some differences between the final version of a Bug's Lynx and @Songbird A Bug's Trip Redux. Levels are probably 99% the same (only minor changes) but gameplay wise, Carl asked for some improvements that makes the game a bit different.

I have no problem to add A Bug's Trip Redux for a limited time on Argon during the contest, but it is also up to Carl to give its opinion as he has the publishing rights.

I don't know if I can touch that score but it will be fun to try. 


Paperboy is one of the all time great games and we're so lucky to have this version. It's damn near perfect. It's not too zoomed in or out.


I guess I'm out for a bugs Lynx. I only have the 2009 version.

Final version of A Bug's Lynx (with the 40 levels + the 12 hidden ones) is still available for free download.

It's a Bug's Trip Redux that is only commercial, as Carl got the rights for the game, and asked for some improvements (that you can check in the a Bug's Trip Demo also available on itch.io )


So depending on which version is used for the contest, I guess it could be easy to play the game.
