  1. Ive been making our second horror/comedy movie this last month in the Smoky Mountain Chronicles series, and this weekend I have off, so I wanted to do a bunch of Atari 7800 articles that I have back logged for www.Atari7800Forever.com before I get busy for the next month while we finish it.

     

    I already posted about this featurette about Muddyfunsters games, but its worth a second mention. Plus there's a graphic from one of his games with my name on it, so I wanted to brag:

    I reviewed Space Duel after playing the arcade version and the 7800 version for an hour on break this week

    I look into getting into the backstory about that mysterious Atari Championship title belt I was gifted last month. I was given a wrestling belt years ago, and it ended up being very valuable. Can lightning strike twice?

    Thanks for giving a crap,

  5. Dragon's Cache is a "Stuff is Falling" puzzle game homebrew by Revontuli... which is the first of three different Dragon themed games for the Atari 7800 he is conjuring up. This guy is nuts, but his games are on point.

  7. Good Knight and Good Luck

    Oh the Puns...

    A programmer from Chile has popped onto the Atari 7800 scene with a trilogy of upcoming Knight Games... well... 2 games about Knights and one about a very special roach. 2 out of 3 ain't bad, is it? Whatever the case, click the link and get hip on Vlad Zuniga's new platform adventure/ one player board game RPG/ and his upcoming SHUMP for the Prosystem.

  11. Have you ever wondered what a ranked list of Atari 7800 space ships based on looks alone would look like? If so, you are probably certifiably crazy... but we could probably be friends.

  13. Today we review ole Bobby D's take on Cinematronics ancient vector game "RIP OFF"

    WHAT IS HAPPENING OVA HERE? 
    Your wife makes a friggin sweet Nacho Del Grande platter. Her Nachos are so tasty in fact, that you pridefully lay them out for your neighbors to see. Foolish boy. You live in a crappy part of town, but who knew your neighbors were pirates who have a sh*t ton of tanks at their disposal? Text your cooky best friend who lives next door, tell him to grab his tank... because those bastards are coming for your Super Bowl snacks and they hate hatred in their eyes and growling in their guts.

  15. I dig Commando better, but to do well in Ikari Warriors I just blow up the tanks myself. Many times it kills a bunch of the enemies. Tanks can get you into trouble.
  16. Resurrecting a review with the WAY BACK MACHINE from the old site, and polishing it up with all of this lovely 2021 "wokeness" and bitchiness, we dive into the age old question... do you prefer Commando (shirts) or Ikari Warriors (skins) in this vertical scrolling, testosterone slurping, explosion inducing review of IK. FOR ONE OR TWO PLAYERS (player two not included)

  18. I've heard a lot of jabrones, tricks, pimps, skeezers, furries, bad guys, gnomes and dorks say that Rikki & Vikki was one of the most impressive games ever made for the Atari 7800.

     

    As a guy that has reviewed 100+ games for the 7800, I'm not easily impressed. Let's see what the Funk thought on his weekend excursion to Misery Land.

      There can only be 550 jabrones, tricks, pimps, skeezers, furries, bad guys, gnomes and dorks out there since The Atari 7800 ProSystem version of Rikki & Vikki ceased production on November 6, 2020 after shipping only 550 units. The rest of us may never know how good the game might be.

      Excellent write-up of the game @Funkmaster V

      It's a shame that the sell through of the first 550 was so slow. I would love to see more from titles from PenguiNet on the 7800. Their game Zaku for Lynx is also top notch!

      I dont know how good a run of 7800 games 550 sales really is. Is that high or low? That's about $33,000... but still probably not worth it after labor, parts and taxes. 

      I hate it that no one can pick up a copy and the music is so huge and on a funky chip that emulation is not possible. You can buy it on steam, however, at a fraction of the cost.

      Thanks for the compliment. Whoever these guys are- they make great games. I hope they come back.

  20. I think this game gets a bad rap, and I think it's pretty good. I agree whole heartedly... it's underrated. I even go into that in this article. http://www.atari7800forever.com/aa.html

  23. Considering all the great art Atari commissioned through the years, this seems like an odd caveat
  24. Klax is one weird "stuff is falling" puzzle game with one of the strangest (lamest) tag lines in history: It's is the nineties, and there is time for KLAX." But this cerebral puzzle game was a completed, unreleased prototype that is pretty darn faithful to the arcade machine its based on.
