Armor Ambush Reloaded isn't working on Stella 6.7.1 for me. Is it for anyone else? Hitting select just scrolls the backgrounds and nothing will make the game start.


You should definitely check out the thread for Armor Ambush Reloaded for full information on how to play. Here's the relevant info you need to start the game:



How does it work ?

- Select to choose the scenery

- Press both button (Player 1 & 2, yes it's a 2 players game) to start

- Reset to start again !

- Difficulty A/B => changes the range of fire. Either short range (and you shoot at higher rate) or long range.

You control the tank by going up, left and right, and switch from one tank to the other by going down. Fire ? fire.


Game listings for each platform are linked in the 6th Annual Atari Homebrew Awards: Voting Information & Discussion page. I've copied them here for you:




Just find the game in the list you need more information on and click on the name. It will lead you to a discussion, usually posted by the dev, talking about the game and usually with instructions and development history.

I always thought this category is about the pure essence of videogaming - take one simple mechanic to provide insanely addictive playthrough - Bot and Tom would be one of the best examples of that - however Laserface managed to exceed my expectations. It’s basically full-fledged platforming adventure, with varying gameplay, an actual story built into 4k rom. Unbelievable.

I'm not seeing where people could have voted on Game Panic 3, Dragon Chalice or the digital download variant Dragon Chalice Mini.  Tried the other sections and my eyes failed me in other areas of the topic too.


I feel like I missed an important step or two.. or three :)


Heya Jason,


Game Panic 3: Was eligible last year as it was released in 2022 but unfortunately did not get nominated.

Dragon Chalice: Unfortunately did not get nominated.

Dragon Chalice Mini: Unfortunately not eligible as it's a variant of Dragon Chalice.
