    Marco1019 got a reaction from RickR in Squad Challenge - Jr. Pac-Man (Atari 2600)   
    I announced this Squad Challenge in the Lvl Up Score Discord as this was announced a few days after my most recent show.
     
    The good news is that Lvl Up Score is celebrating #AtariApril as gamers are focusing on all Atari systems throughout the month. So I hope there's some crossover between the sites.
     
    Good luck to all of the participants!

    I'm seeing questions about the Phoenix so I give some answers in this video. It's such a great system and I hope you're able to get one if you have not already.

    Marco1019 reacted to RickR in A Collection of VCS Catalogs   
    I found my stack of Atari catalogs while digging in the attic.  Here are the unique issues I found.  Does anyone else have others?  I wonder how many they actually made?  I seem to recall there was a "yellow" one as well in my collection somewhere.

    Marco1019 got a reaction from Sabertooth in Saturn Virtua Racing review/documentary   
    PandaMonium uploaded a review/documentary on Virtua Racing for the Sega Saturn and this one is definitely worth watching. The video includes interview clips with Chuck Tolman (who helped develop Virtua Racing for Time Warner Interactive) who recalls some of the struggles and obstacles he and his team encountered. In addiiton, PandaMonium compares the Saturn version to the other versions (both home and arcade).
     
    The video provides much greater context for a home version of Virtua Racing which has received a lot of criticism since its initial release.

    I'm skipping this one as I never owned & never played TG-16. I did mention this challenge on the show this past Tuesday so I hope you get some new gamers here.

    This link comes from a Facebook comment by the author.  As someone who adores the game Adventure on Atari 2600, I found this article to be so enlightening and enjoyable.  I hope you do too.  PS - Warren Robinett's book has not yet been completed.

    I'm sorry for not participating in this one. I really wanted to, but a lot of my free time was swallowed up by preparing some Swordquest reviews, which I'm still doing. I'll try to bust out the TG-16 mini before the next one ends.

    Thanks for the kind words, @Justin! I understand why this particular game can be so addictive.
     
    I'll get that run posted on the Odyssey scoreboard this week. I just posted a new Ms. Pac-Man record over on the Commodore 64 scoreboard.

    Congratulations to @Marco1019 on a terrific score! Marco takes the top spot in our very first Magnavox Odyssey ² Squad Challenge with his score of 1,213! Our very own legend @Sabertooth came in with a great score and gave Marco a real challenge, posting 930 to take the 2nd spot on our board. The incredible @RadioPoultry wasn't far behind with a score of 889, taking the 3rd spot. "The Don" @RickR rounds things out with a great score of 628 points. ALL of our players' new high scores have beaten the existing scores for Attack of the Timelord on our Atari I/O Scoreboard! WOW!! Great to see you guys scoring new personal bests! You are all legends. 
    Congratulations to @Marco1019 on his big win in becoming Atari I/O’s new Attack of the Timelord Champion, and a huge THANK YOU to Marco and everyone else whose been getting the word out about our community and inviting others to join us in High Score Squad. As always I'd like to encourage Marco to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and let's make sure this Challenge continues on! And a big congratulations to our community for being such a great group!
    NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge is Air Zonk for TurboGrafx-16 / TurboExpress / TurboDuo / PC Engine! Be there!

    Fun Fact: You also face The Bungeling Empire in Choplifter and Lode Runner.
     
    Fun Fact #2: I once played the C64 version and wondered what would happen if you destroyed the War Machine in the game without blowing up all six factories. It turned out that they don't build a second War Machine. I was kind of disappointed, then I laughed at the limited Bungeling budget.
