Hello everybody!  I'm Dallas, the Gemini Gamer.  Recently, I started reviewing Atari 2600 games on my YouTube channel, Dreamcast Gamer.  Rather than updating my status with each new video, I will simply post them in this thread.  With these reviews, I use lots of humor and feature guests on some episodes.  I hope you enjoy!

Great review of one of my favorites.  I hadn't thought about playing Yars' in the dark for a long time, but you mentioning it (and showing it -- nice!) makes me remember vividly that indescribable locked-in feeling of taking on the Qotile in the dark, with that constant droning sound drawing you further into the game.

 

I agree that it would have been nice to see a few more Qotile shield level designs; thankfully the game variations and difficulty switches can help to keep things fresh and challenging.

 

Looking forward to more!

Thanks!  Yeah, I saw them live four times, twice when I was 11, and twice when I was 12.  Glad to know you're familiar with them!

Who needs the Video Touch Pad to play Star Raiders when you've got a Nintendo Zapper?  This is the real way to play Star Raiders!
