  1. I'll get things started with a score High Score: 41,400
  2. 🕹️ Excited to celebrate Pac-Man Day w/ a 7800 Ms. Pac-Man Squad Challenge and video! 

     

  3. We celebrate National Pac-Man Day annually with a different Pac-Man game every year. There's only so many Pac-Man games to go through without repeating, so we're saving 2600 Ms. Pac-Man for another year
  4. I've always had a theory that I believe holds water, that when Atari noticed Mattel's successful Intellivision ads they asked themselves "How do you top George Plimpton as a spokesperson?" with the answer being "Hire the guy who plays George Plimpton on the big screen".
  5. Then you would enjoy the 1968 film Paper Lion (based on Plimpton's nonfiction book) with Alan Alda portraying George Plimpton on the big screen.
  6. @btbfilms76 has a special episode of 7800 Avenue premiering today coinciding with our Ms. Pac-Man Squad Challenge! BTB fires up the Atari 7800 and takes a look at Ms. Pac-Man, which you can watch here:

We're celebrating National Pac-Man Day this month with a few rounds of Ms. Pac-Man on the Atari 7800! Ms. Pac-Man was one of the first titles released on the 7800 and a must-have for any Atari 7800 aficionado. We're still keeping things light and breezy as we deal with this Coronavirus situation and get back into the swing of things in the forums, so kick back, relax, and put on a nice easy game of 7800 Ms. Pac-Man. I hope you guys are ready for a new season of High Score Squad and good luck to everybody participating! NOTE: Upcoming Squad Challenges will be simple and straightforward until the site issues are completely resolved. We'll dive deeper with some fun Squad Challenges this summer. Thanks for playing, and enjoy! Ms_Pac-Man.a78Ms_Pac-Man.pdf
  8. So you're saying that if George Plimpton were to compare the Atari 2600 fish game with Intellivision® Shark! Shark!, he'd think you'd agree that Intellivision® Shark! Shark! plays like the real thing?
  9. Congratulations RickR! Congratulations @RickR! What a fantastic score! I hope this was a fun challenge, we don't often get to play homebrew games in Squad Challenge, I think that's something we can do move of in the future. Shark! Shark! was always one of my favorite games on Intellivision and it was interesting to see a Shark! Shark! inspired homebrew hit the Atari 2600. A simple but fun concept. Thanks everyone for turning out to play a homebrew Squad Challenge. How do you think Go Fish! compares to other homebrew games on the Atari 2600? Does it live up to the fun of Shark! Shark! on the Intellivision? @RickR posted an impressive score of 2,649 points! The legendary @TrekMD ranked 2nd on the leaderboard with 1,717 points, and @RadioPoultry was right behind him with 1,488 points. @chas10e rounds things out with a solid showing of 831 points. Congrats to RickR for his top ranking and to everyone who jumped in this squad challenge and shared a score! I'd like to encourage RickR 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 a special challenge celebrating National Pac-Man Day. Be there!

  11. WINNER: Justin Food Fight Atari 7800 March 30, 2020 ROUND 1: @Justin ROUND 2: @Atari Creep ROUND 3: @Justin Atari Creep and I played Food Fight on the 7800 over the weekend. We completed the first two rounds, and then Atari Creep went live on his Instagram to finish the 3rd round. My recollection is his best score for the 3rd round beat me by a few thousand points. He wasn't able to save the stream though so we didn't have the record of the final round that we thought we would. Chris insists he didn't top my score and that I won the 3rd round so I'll take the Win only begrudgingly. We're gonna go for a rematch again pretty soon.
  12. Final day to get your scores in for this Squad Challenge! Good luck everybody! 🙌
  13. Better Call Saul is on AMC again tonight. Anyone else watching this show? It's the continuation/prequel to the Breaking Bad universe.
  14. WINNER: Justin Xevious Atari 7800 March 30, 2020 ROUND 1: @RadioPoultry ROUND 2: @Justin ROUND 3: @Justin RadioPoultry is a SERIOUS contender and this was a great game to play! He's a gentleman and a great guy to play against. The Atari 7800 really shines with Xevious as @kamakazi20012 was just saying, it feels like legit arcade action with a ton of stuff moving around the screen and zero slowdown. This match was particularly fun because Radio and I both got farther in Xevious than either of us ever had. Radio always posts incredible scores, when I sat down to play this morning I thought I was done for. I barely squeaked by, and RadioPoultry and I had a very close game. Hope to play again!
  15. Funny you post this now @kamakazi20012 I've been thinking about NES Metroid all week! I think Samus may just need her own Atari I/O animated emoji.
