    Squad Challenge - Joust (Atari 7800)

    Congratulations Dinobot711! Congratulations to @Dinobot711 on an incredible score! What a clean win! Dinobot takes the top spot in our Atari 7800 Joust Final Standings with his score of 130,300! Joust is a terrific game for the 7800, and we were able to keep our momentum with high participation on a 7800 game which tends to fizzle a little bit in comparison with Atari 2600 and NES games. It was great to have you all join in the buzzard bait action! "The Don" @RickR held his reputation for impressive scores, posting a score of 86,700 to take 2nd Place on our Final Standings. Another top score performer, @Sabertooth held his own with a great score and came very close to Rick to take the 3rd spot on our board with a score of 85,450. @HDN @Justin @AtariSphinx @Marco1019 @EEP! @Gianna @btbfilms76 @nosweargamer @TrekMD @socrates63 and @Atari Creep all joined us in this Squad Challenge and came through with stellar scores! Congratulations once again to @Dinobot711 for the big win, and as always I'd like to encourage Dino to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and let's make sure this Challenge continues on! And a big congratulations to our community for being such a great group, I hope everybody had fun with this classic arcade game for the Atari 7800 ProSystem! NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge is Attack of the Timelord! for Magnavox Odyssey ²! Be there!

    48100. Tonight was the only chance I had to submit a run. I hadn't played Joust in decades and it showed LOL. I was inspired by Dazzer's 10MM run on the Arcade version. It's the final run in the video which starts at 13:36. Thanks to @Atari Creepfor inadvertently reminding me that I still had OpenEmu installed; I had been using RetroArch but I've had trouble with it lately.

    Joust (7800, Intermediate): 71,150 Scored on emulator. Grew up playing the Atari computer version and recently played the 2600 which was able to roll. This version is really good but definitely more challenging than the other two like the arcade version. I have a version on the original Xbox (Midway Arcade Treasures) that would like to retry and see how it compares.

    Squad Challenge - Joust (Atari 7800)

    Here's a video I made of Atari 7800 Joust for this Squad Challenge. I got this one to actually work, unlike the Q*Bert one I tried to make last time. That one had commentary by yours truly, and for some reason I couldn't get the audio to mix properly (though it's worked fine before so I don't know what was wrong with it that time). This Joust video doesn't. Just gameplay. Another difference between this and my failed Q*Bert video is that this one is using emulation. Instead of using my 7800 and Joust cartridge, I am using my modded Wii U. That's why you can see the High Score Cartridge screen. I prefer using original hardware if I have it at my disposal, but this is okay I guess. At least it's nicer on your end; you'll have some nice composite-captured footage rather than the crummy RF my 7800 uses. But, anyways, after I gave up on a particularly bad first game I got a new personal best for this challenge: 79,150. I definitely have some room for improvement. I hate playing with the Wiimote so much. I might switch back to my 7800 soon, but I'm not sure if I'll have the time to.

    Did a live stream tonight. Bummer that this game glitched out a lot while playing, while the others did not. 158,600 I might delete the stream as I'm not happy with the quality, but for now, here's a pic of the score and the video below.

    SMB2 is a sprite hack of a Japanese game called Doki Doki Panic. Nintendo did this because they though that the Japanese SMB2, which plays a lot like SMB1 but harder, would be too difficult for American audiences. I say the US got the better SMB2. Japanese SMB2 came later to the US with Super Mario All Stars as SMB: The Lost Levels.

    BOOM! You are correct, sir. The "coupled controller" part -- this was a game that came with a plastic coupler so you could use one stick to move and the other to fire.

    You got it @RadioPoultry! Wing Commander III is an excellent space sim that used FMV to great effect! It has a star studded cast, including Mark Hamill, Malcolm Mcdowell, John Rhys-Davies and Tom Wilson ("Biff" from Back to the Future) as Maniac. The main ship is the TCS Victory. On PC, 3DO and Playstation. True story: I made up my mind to get a Saturn over Playstation at least in part because print ads for Wing Commander III had it coming to both platforms. All things being equal, I liked Sega's original exclusive content better than Sony's and figured most third party games would hit both. That version never happened. 🕹️😂

    I appreciate the suggestion, but think it would be simpler for everyone to just type correct, or something of that sorts. There could be confusion if we have two different ways to let them know they got it right, and the "Thanks" icon can be done by anyone, even by accident, so if we did the Thanks thing, the guesser would still have to double check to make sure it came from the original author. However, I do encourage people to explain their clues when someone guesses correctly. Sometimes people don't understand all the clues, and giving them enlightenment helps increase their precious retro gaming knowledge! I just want to say thanks to everyone who's been participating! I'm having a blast reading all the haikus and trying to guess the hints. This also gives me a Trivial Pursuit feel, where some may seem easy, but then others taking a little more thinking, and I like that! Keep it going all.

    Well done @RickR! From the first haiku: MC3D - particularly the 3D mode - is famous for its JJ Abrams like lens flare. The game has a mix of enemies, including alien ships and a dragon. The game was programmed for use with the cancelled Virtuality headset, JaguarVR. From the hint haiku: A core component of Missile Command is defending cities. Of the Atari Corps era updates for Jaguar, it was one that wasn't done by Minter. And 3D glasses FTW! It's one of my favorites on the Jaguar and my favorite version of Missile Command.

    I think XONOX Double Enders were an awesome concept putting two ROM's in a phat cart. What would your wish list of Double Ender Cartridges be if this classic format could be reproduceable Today? Here are my picks: Zaxxon and Pole Position Popeye and BurgerTime Mr Do and Ms Pacman Discs of Tron and M Network Football SpaceChase and INFILTRATE Video Chess and Missile Command Asteroids and Defender Buck Rogers and Qbert Star Voyager and Solar Fox AMIDAR and StarShip Moon Patrol and Skiing BeamRider and Gyruss Commando and Space Invaders

    I'm really excited to see a modern solution for the lack of the old Retro Radio Shack P-Box Electronic Project Kits. I built a few of them when I was a kid, but now if you can find one on Ebait they want a King's ransom for one. Well, I love the new updated and reproduction so much I thought I'd make a video to share with others, because as they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words!

    Dude, I subscribed and being on Youtube (MaximumRD) since 2008 with hundreds of subscriptions that is something I do not do very much these days and more often then not when checking out a NEW youtuber I don't expect to subscribe but you earned it. Short and concise but managed to convey your personality and more importantly does not feel like a "made up" personality, you were funny, entertaining and informative AND you managed to pack that all within a 10 minute video? Hell, I drone on and on and on in my vids mostly but that's just me 😉I appreciate a video that is not longer then what is needed to convey the message, hell there are youtubers I absolutely LOVE and I think do great professional work that I often fast forward and skim through to grab the good bits simply because they are going on and on or just repeating what they just went over unnecessarily or simply to stretch the video out to fulfill a certain amount of time, I see none of that here and appreciate it. WELCOME, that is a great video to introduce anyone thinking about picking up a 2600 to. Great job! Keep it up, have fun and be yourself!

    Here's my theory. It was programmed by Ed Averett, who programed the majority of the O2 games, which is quite an accomplishment, even if all the games aren't the best. How did he pump out so many games? Taking as many shortcuts as he could including using the same foundation for most of the games. That's why I believe a lot of his games have the same score bar on the bottom, allowing you to enter your initials the same way and all restart immediately. It probably saved him a lot of time compared to making a new game from the ground up. The restarts can be a pain if you are trying to enter initials, but at the same time, they also fueled the whole "let me try that one more time" feeling you can get with games like this one and Pick Axe Pete.
