A Word about Ken: We're dedicating the month of September to the memory of homebrew artist Ken Siders. In celebration of Ken's life and work, we will be hosting two High Score Squad Challenges during the month of September. What better way to celebrate Ken than to play and appreciate what he left behind? The first Squad Challenge is for b*nQ and will run through September 15th. The second Squad Challenge will be for Beef Drop and will run from September 16th through September 30th.


Special Thanks: A very special thank you is in order to atarilbc for making this happen. Thank you atarilbc for your help!

Unfortunately, I have no luck running this ROM with EMU7800. I've tried several ways and the emulator can not recognize this game.

I've been using v1.8 on Windows 10 and have had the same trouble.

For windows 10, go to the "Store" app and search for emu7800.  Install that one (it does not seem to have a version number).  That one works with these files and also does 2600 games.  It is free. 


Arena, I don't know if Win 7 also supports the "store" app.  But I think that's the only way to get that newer version that works.

Great game everyone! Congratulations on your win TrekMD! TrekMD won with an incredible 41,950 points! atarilbc comes in with a VERY close 2nd place and a high score of 41,300 points! RickR and BTB both held their own at 28,600 and 27,950 respectively. ALL of you showed a great game. I hope these past two High Score Squad Challenges were a suitable way to remember Ken Siders and celebrate his life. Thank you again to atarilbc for his help on these Squad Challenges. Congratulations again to TrekMD, I'd encourage you to post your winning Beef Drop high score on the Scoreboard! Way to go guys!
