    I finally got a TG-16!

    Found one at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo Swap Meet today. I also included a pic of the other good junk I bought. It works great. Only one game. Anyone have games for sale?

    Homebrew Titles that had 100 copies?

    So, for my own personal interest (as well as my own game making reasons) I'm wondering how many new Atari 2600 games started at 100 copies. I'm not sure I can plunk down for that many boards at a time being a one man game development house. It sounds like a lot compared to other homebrew runs I've seen. What's the average? What have y'all seen in the past?

    Thank you for the purchase!!! Make sure you read page 17 since you will find some title repeats within the book.

    "New" Atari 2600 Homebrew - Avalanche

    Avalanche was an Atari arcade game released in 1978 that was never ported to any home systems back in the day. It did, however, inspire games like Kaboom! for the Atari 2600. Here is an image of the arcade game: In 2007, Champ Games created a home version of the game that we all forgot about (even I did and I posted in the thread!) and now, 12 years later, it is being brought to the light again as it will be seeing a cart release! You can check the Atari Age thread here: Avalanche. A binary can be found there for download. Champ is looking to make some improvements to the game before release. Check out an image of the game as it stands now.

    I'll be honest, I almost didn't go to the swap meet due to my "downsizing" mood. I finally decided to just go. I thought I'd say hello to the people I know and have a little fun....but ended up finding a lot of cool stuff AND saying hello.

    I finally got a TG-16!

    I have to admit I'm a bit jealous lol. My area needs meets like that. The SMS is a great system with graphics that sometimes come close to the Genesis's capabilities. Bright and beautiful colors. I also believe Sega is the only game developer to license their IPs on other platforms that are not Sega consoles when Sega was producing hardware as well. Awesome score on the TG-16 but don't do what I did and let Keith Courage discourage you from enjoying the system. It has other great games that make it worth owning. It is a shame, however, that some PCE titles never made it to the TG-16. Konami made some awesome ports of their shooters for the PCE, Japan-only though. So if you ever run across a PCE at those events grab it! Then import the games we never got over here. Blazing Lasers is an awesome game if you can find it. Vigilante is damn near arcade perfect. I haven't played many others but I would look for them if I ever get my hands on a TG-16 again.

    I was just getting ready to sell my SMS collection. But this console was a bargain, so I'm back in. It does have Alex Kidd built in. I might just sell my original SMS now and keep this one. I like that it's very compact.

    I should also add that the Sega Master System is also an incredible 8-Bit console and is one of my all-time favorites. The Master System II wasn't as common in the U.S. as the original, but it's the one I grew up with. Mine had Alex Kidd in Miracle World built in. The color and sound on Sega Master System are pretty nice for an 8-Bit system, lots of fun games to explore if you're new to the world of Master System.

    I also came so so close to buying a Jaguar at this show too, but I could not afford both the Jag and the TG-16. So I prioritized the TG-16 higher and brought that one home.

    Thank you! I am thinking seriously about getting that everdrive. Seems like games are very costly for this system, so the everdrive really is good bang for the buck. I think I did pretty well on the price, and I'm very happy with the condition.

    I finally got a TG-16!

    RICK!! THAT IS SUCH FANTASTIC NEWS! I'M SO THRILLED TO SEE THIS! Any time someone jumps into the world of TurboGrafx-16 and PC Engine I'm super excited to have one more new person on board. Same with new people coming to Atari. I can't promise that this will become your favorite video game system, especially if Keith Courage is your only game (it's not a bad one but not a strong reason to get the system either) but if you give it time, explore what games are out there, maybe spring for a Turbo EverDrive and also check out some of the games that were never released in the US, I think you'll find it an interesting game system that almost got lost with time in the dominance of Nintendo and Sega. @RickR I am truly excited to see that you picked one of these up and will be giving it a good home. If you find yourself looking for TG16 suggestions I'm always around. It was always one of my favorite game systems and for so long it felt so overlooked. I thought the HuCards / TurboChips were so cool, especially the fact that the games that played in the home console that you have were also the games that played in their TurboExpress portable handheld. I hope you'll find a lot to enjoy with this system. CONGRATULATIONS RICK!! Welcome to the TG16 club!
