Give Me My Pancake!

by Mr. Atari






This one looks really cool.  It's got the look and feel of a Game-n-Watch, which is a really neat idea.  Plus, the ROM is available to try for free.  And you can get a custom message in the hard version for just a few bucks more!  And finally...only about $18 shipped to the US!    Oh!  And there is a PDF of the box that you can print yourself.  Unbelievable! 


I ordered one.  The game is pretty simple, but it's fun and unique, and I think we all should support such fairly priced efforts.

I love when guys in the community create stuff like this. Translating the Game-n-Watch feel to the 2600 is a novel idea. I'll have to check this out.

It's the same author as "Defend Your Castle":  http://forums.atari....nd-your-castle/


I can attest that game came quickly and was fun to put together.  No issue at all here ordering another game from Simon.

Amazing price! I'm guessing he makes about $5-$6 each cart but it certainly makes wanting to get homebrews of this nature for more attractive and is more than fair.

Excellent graphics, for an A2600 game. I like the premise. Also, you are right, Clint. It is an attractive game. :)

It came!  That didn't take long. 


All the way from Netherlands.

This is what comes in the bag:

I chose a Combat with a bad label (and no end label) as the shell donor:

While I have the cart taken apart, I clean everything up with alcohol and a cotton ball:

A quick test after assembly (and before I put the stickers on):

And finally, I put the stickers on using a Yars' Revenge to make sure I orient them correctly:
