  3. I bought the game new, late in the existence of it..... probably 1987. So I had the game manuals, but I never knew til now what the building icon did AND that you could eat the Reese's Pieces for more points! That changes the game for me!!! That makes sense now! Thanks!

  19. I couldn't get the 2018: Year in Review book completed as I lost my job at the beginning of this year. I've tried to pick up and start writing Volume 3 instead. I'm still trying to figure out what I can do with the completed 2018 homebrew titles (A-P), and alot of them have been updated and/or changed since I wrote about them.

  22. Thanks for the shout out! I bought my Flashback 9 HDMI from my Dollar General during the Amazon Prime days for half price! It is awesome! The HDMI output and the SD card slot make it the best AtGames Atari Flashback console to date. Not sure if the upcoming AtGames Atari Flashback X (which will look more like the wood version of the VCS - silver switches and all) will have the SD card slot or not.
  23. I guess I could have put it in the Atari 2600 forum instead of the homebrew forum, though its a prototype and not a homebrew. I'm just used to covering homebrews and hacks. 😉
  24. Hoping someone hacks it, after they fix it for the Harmony carts.
