  1. Food Fight is what first got me interested in the Atari 7800. I built this Atari 7800/Genesis hybrid twin stick. It consists of 2 Sanwa JLW joysticks. The buttons are Crown SDB-202MX with Cherry micro switches. The first stick has a Sega MK-1470 6 button controller PCB with the Edladdin Seagull 78 adapter attached. The second stick has an Edladdin Easy 78 PCB. The ball tops are Kinu rubber coated and they feel great. Dual stick games like Robotron 2084 and T:me Salvo play wonderfully. The case is made from and old oak TV tray and the back of an old corkboard.

  2. He's sold quite a few by now. I got these directly from Kristof last summer and they are cartridge# 784 & 989 respectively.

  3. @Gianna This is probably more retro than you're going for, and of course I enjoyed the original on Atari 7800, but I had Impossible Mission on Nintendo DS about 10 years ago and remember it being loads of fun. I would play it at night in my hotel room when I was traveling. Interesting puzzle platformer that stays pretty true to the original.

  4. Thank you! Exactly what we were going for. Decided it would be a great idea to fracture my ankle during the time I was developing this dual cart. Had to switch gears as computing became more challenging. Balloon Girl uses the side scrolling engine and sprites from an homage to the Great Gianna Sisters I was making. Found that running and jumping just didn't feel right and pared down the gameplay into one button. Move up and forward. Collect stuff. Avoid enemies. Sharkstorm also went with simple. Left, right and shoot was what ya got. That and giant randomly created bosses. Making a double ender in the era of gigabyte ROM collections is an exercise in absurd fun. Glad we're all here enjoying new and wonderful things both classic and crazy!

  5. Probably same as usual! Typically on Halloween my mom makes a bunch of Halloween inspired snacks, and sometimes also orders pizza as well 🙂 My family spends time together and we also help pass out candy as the neighborhood gets crazy. Each year it is super busy!

  6. About 10 years ago I discovered the Atari 7800 after I turned an OG Xbox into an emulation/MAME machine and played Food Fight for the 1st time emulated, but it is no comparison to playing on a real Atari 7800 through my 36" Trintron CRT and S-Video using DRC mode which doubles both horizontal and vertical lines. I have my Colecovision hooked up to coaxial and it too looks great especially in DRC mode. I love my Sony WEGA FD Trintron KV-36XBR450. I have built a few. Here are the MitchStick 8-Ball Edition for the Sega Master System, the MitchStick Van Gogh Edition for the PS1 and last but not least, the all leaf switch MitchStick Super CV Edition for the Colecovision.

  7. Food Fight is probably my favorite game on the 7800, hands down one of my favorite Atari games of all time! Looks great! I need one!

  11. Just made some of these Balloon Girl / Sharkstorm dual carts for the CORGs expo. Balloon Girl is a one button side-scrolling action game. Kinda like Balloon Fight or Flappy Bird. Collect joysticks and pink squares for points while avoiding baddies. The FIRE button is used for everything and should be friendly to accessibility controllers. Sharkstorm is the developer version of Twist R Shark. This is a top down boss rush game with procedural content. The boss characteristics grow and change each wave.

  16. Far as I know the Wife and I have the same plan as always. Turn off all the outside lights and interior lights and hide in the back bedroom to watch movies.

  18. Thanks for the suggestions so far ☺️ I will check them all out! Currently I have been playing Tomodachi Life. It’s sort of a quirky game that involves Mii characters.

  19. I got rid of my DS long ago but I absolutely loved the Etrian Odyssey series. They are fantastic dungeon crawlers from Atlus. Castlevania had some great entries as well: Dawn of Sorrow, Portrait of Ruin and Order of Ecclesia. Some of the best entries in the franchise IMHO. Lastly, the Final Fantasy III and IV remakes on DS were sublime. Just realizing typing this that I still had time to play RPGs at one point. 😂🤣

  20. A Neo-Geo Mini! I totally stumbled into this one. I had no idea these even existed. And the built in screen is really nice.

  21. Here's a picture of one that I have that's similar in size. I have small hands. It fits pretty nicely. Clearly, the one I have is meant to be placed on a tabletop, so this is for example only. I think most people would think that it's smaller than they thought it would be. What else can I tell you...the casing is 3d printed with no rough edges. It's very solid. I don't get any creaks or bending of any kind. The buttons are top notch.
