  1. Can't we just re-release things like this full-size 1:1 scale with cartridge ports?
  2. I've been hoping Atari would release a 1/2 scale Lynx. Micro looks too small.
  3. Thanks Scott, it's cool. No host wants to win the prize at their own party, if you know what I mean. You did really well and should be proud, I'm thinking sometime filming my score and seeing just how far I can take it.
  4. Wow that looks like a Pole Position ripoff
  5. 💎 Desert Falcon High Score Squad Challenge is up!

      Since I have Desert Falcon for the A7800, I might try this. Thanks, Justin, for posting. :O)

    2. Justin


      That's great news @BlackCatz40 I hope you do!

    3. BlackCatz40


      Thanks. I will see what I can do. :O)

  6. @btbfilms76 has a special episode of 7800 Avenue premiering today coinciding with our Desert Falcon Squad Challenge! BTB fires up the Atari 7800 and pairs Desert Falcon with the @Video 61 Gripstick Joystick, which you can watch here:

Desert Falcon Atari 7800 Controller: JOYSTICK / KEYBOARD / PLAYER'S CHOICE Difficulty Level: Standard Play on: Real Hardware / Dedicated Console / MAME / Emulation OK! ✔ Squad Challenge ends 11:59 pm PST June 14, 2020 Objective Play for the highest possible score using the difficulty settings defined in the challenge. Post a photo or YouTube video of your score in this thread. Scores must be achieved between June 1st through June 14th, 2020. Screen captures are not allowed as they are more easily manipulated for falsified scores. Multiple submissions are permitted. The player with the highest score at the end of the competition is the victor! Eligibility Anyone can join in. All players are welcome! Play Rules Games may be played on real hardware, Flashback, or emulation, using any controller or keyboard, following all rules and game settings defined in the challenge. Choosing between real hardware or emulation, and choosing which controller to play on is part of formulating your strategy. Enhancements, rewinds and hacked versions of this game are not allowed. Difficulty Level Standard. This provides a balanced amount of difficulty and enjoyable gameplay. Fair Play Your integrity is everything. Players should play fairly, be honest, and have fun! Falsified scores will result in your immediate removal from the site. It goes without saying that we will not allow cheats, hacks, cartridge frying, enhancements, rewinds, deceitful photo manipulation, subterfuge, or any other unfair advantage. Everybody hates a cheater. More To review detailed rules on how to play, please visit the High Score Squad page here: Message Welcome to our 80th Squad Challenge! We're pulling out a great and often overlooked classic that mixes Zaxxon game play with Egyptian motifs for a really unique game on the Atari 7800. To win at Desert Falcon requires some basic understanding of the game play and how the Super Powers work. My suggestion is to take a glance at the instruction manual and familiarize yourself with the Hieroglyphs and how to play. I'd also encourage you guys to SHARE YOUR STRATEGIES here in the Challenge, this is a great opportunity for that! Game and PDF Instructions are provided below. It's time to kick back, relax, and collect Pharo's lost jewels! I hope you guys are ready for a new season of High Score Squad and good luck to everybody participating! NOTE: Another great Squad Challenge is coming up soon! We'll be playing a DOUBLE FEATURE Squad Challenge next time! Thanks for playing, and enjoy! Desert Falcon.a78 Desert Falcon.pdf
  8. Congratulations Scott Stilphen! Congratulations @Scott Stilphen! Your Mario Bros. score took top placement in our Final Standings! I hope everybody enjoyed experiencing Mario Bros. on the Atari 2600. This version of the game plays slightly different from other versions mostly due to the 2600's limitations, but I think the game looks really good and is fun to play once you work out the different dynamic if you're used to the other versions. Racking up points can become a bit of a puzzle to put all of the pieces together to make your strategy work, and I think that's a lot of fun. This is a second win in a row for Scott, congratulations to Scott for taking the top spot at the very end with a 1st Place score of 1,002,400 points! I took 2nd with 1,000,200 points, and @atarilbc had consistently good showings in this challenge and ended up placing 3rd with 986,200 points. @RickR, @greenween, @kamakazi20012, @Gianna, @Atari Creep, @RadioPoultry and @TrekMD all had great showings, and in general most all of our scores really improved from what they had been at the beginning of the challenge. Congratulations to everybody on an exciting run, and to everyone who joined in this Squad Challenge and shared a score! I'd like to encourage Scitt to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and let's make sure this Challenge continues on! NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be an Atari 7800 challenge. Be there!

  10. Good luck @kamakazi20012! I've got to call Time though. We're now past 11:59 PM Pacific. I'll tally up scores, post standings and get the next Squad Challenge posted on Monday.
  11. If you're asking that then you haven't got all of the pieces yet. Get to Level 11 and see what goes 😉
  12. And wow that's unreal that Gate of Thunder, Legendary Axe and Keith Courage weren't included. Especially the Hudson titles.
  13. It's awesome that you got ahold of one of these. Curious if you have it set up with everything else (where you already had your TG16 and Duo) or if you've got it in another room. Just like with everything else, I was also the only kid on the block that had a TurboGrafx-16 growing up. It was in the lineup with my 7800, Lynx and Jaguar as stuff all of my friends came over to play at my house because they were all such an oddity to them. I've been loving Shump Junkie's channel ever since you first turned me onto it. He does great reviews. I should reach out to him and invite him to Atari I/O. TurboGrafx-16 / PC Engine has always been my favorite (non-Atari) lineup. I'm glad you're into TG and I feel like more and more people are realizing just how awesome these games are and how they fill that "After NES but before everything else that came afterward" niche.
