    A view of the GBA/DS/3DS console collection.  And the sweet box I keep them in.  The bottom two are my "go-to" machines. 

    Does anyone else have trouble "seeing" the 3D effect on the 3DS?  Maybe it's just me.

    391 first try.  I can do much better.
    There's two things I love about this game. 
    The sound - Lovely crystal-like sounds.  The fact that multiple bricks can go with each hit.

    Score: Flower-0467 (10,467)
    The bonus rounds really are the way to go. I got 1500 points each from the last couple before the game ended.

    Finally added a boxed super Nintendo to the collection. Got it off offer up. guy posted it a year ago and I asked him if it was available that day a year ago and he finally messaged me yesterday said he still has it. Got it for $50. He also said he had some games but I would have to pay extra. He only wanted $20 for the games. Man I have been wanting to play turtles in time for the longest!

    If anyone is interested in me playing horribly at 2600 games, here's the first three hours of my marathon:
    @Atari Creepwas a trooper & kept me company in the wee hours of the morning while I made my way through some COD: Modern Warfare campaign. @Control Issuesstopped by while I was playing some virtual golf.
    Thank you again for all of your support, both financially & with spreading the word.
    I will draw the order for the giveaway later today (hopefully).

    I like how you can speed up or slow down the paddle with the A or B buttons. The Game Boy port of Super Breakout would have been greatly improved if it had a similar feature.

    Woooweee, this is a perfect game for Halloween.  There is NOTHING more satisfying that smacking the living with a board.  I'm going to find time to play this one more.
    Warning:  This is another game that doesn't show your score after you die.  You gotta be careful and hit that pause button, get your camera ready, then unpause and snap!

    MESSAGE: Welcome to our 72nd Squad Challenge! November kicks off the Holiday season, which often times reminds us of traveling, road trips to see family for holiday gatherings, and many hours spent in the back of the car playing video games. We're starting things off with Alleyway for Game Boy! Alleyway was one of the first Game Boy games released in the USA, and one of the first games I can remember playing for Game Boy. Alleyway is a nice Breakout clone. I loved Breakout and Super Breakout on Atari 2600, and although it lacks the Arkanoid-style power-ups, Alleyway still proves to be a fun game. I hope you guys enjoy this Squad Challenge! ROM and Instruction Manual are provided below. Good luck to everyone playing!
     
    NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be a Thanksgiving challenge for the Atari 7800. Be there!
