  1. hi everyone, now here is where the 7800 really shines. the programmer knew his/her stuff, and most likely the choplifter is a double sprite. music good to. now the xe version, i will include the original 16k apple port also. it will show you why this one is so bad and choppy. the apple port is a port of apple basic with machine code, its why its pink. the 1988 atari version just updated the lousy apple port. its obvious its not a complete rewrite in atari machine code. 16k apple port. choplifter was released originally as a 16k game on cart., 48k disk. by broderbund. thanks, lance www.atarisales.com
  2. hi everyone, i think the xe version is better. no reason for it, except a proper sized 7800 board was not used 7800 version, its colorful, but seems a bit baron, and doors are a little bit sluggish. overall though, still a good version. thanks, lance www.atarisales.com
  3. yes i can see that scenario being true, thanks for the info!! lance www.atarisales.com
  4. its not so easy to get today. lance www.atarisales.com
  5. it was very cool how it was done. lance www.atarisales.com
  6. hi rickr, AGREED! if its done right on the 7800, it shines!!! what a 7800 game needs is a very talented programmer, and the right size board. it makes all the differences. lance www.atarisales.com
  7. hi, i used to play it all of the time. the local arcade place had sinsitar, hat trick, food fight and crystal castles all sitting next to each other. went through quarters like crazy!!!! lance www.atarisales.com
  8. hi, i play it every once in a while, just to remind me that bad games happen! lance www.atarisales.com
  9. hi, yep, its on a xegs super cart. its almost like the programmer said who cares. i know the 7800 can shine sprite wise, but the xe can do some complicated stuff. lance www.atarisales.com
  10. hi everyone, as requested, and i was about to do it, food fight comparison. 7800 version, colorful, smooth, good sounds, XEGS version, choppy, almost like its in basic, music pretty good, but some sound effects are almost 2600 like. lance www.atarisales.com
  11. hi rickr, you read my mine, i was just about to do it. its a amazing difference that is for sure! lance www.atarisales.com
  12. hi, agreed. the 7800 with the right programmer and a good board, could really shine. lance www.atarisales.com
  13. hi, both are good, its just the 7800 seems a little more smoother. lance www.atarisales.com
