Nice video! Juno First would be on my list. It looks better on the 2600 than in the arcade.

 

Just cuz it isn't on my list doesn't mean it's a bad game. Juno First is a good pick although I've had problems with that game on my Atari 7800 with it crashing all the time. It doesn't crash when I play on my 2600 Jr.

Juno First(2600), Space Rocks! (2600) and B*nq! (7800) are some of my favorites. If you add handhelds, Zaku for the Lynx is tremendous. I'm also astonished at how well Another World was translated to the Jaguar. Its of the most ambitious titles I've seen from home brew programmers.

Started watching this and thinking.... this should be good, let's see how many Atari VCS/2600 "homebrews" make your list......... hmmmm.......

 

5.) Jr Pac Man - Atari 7800

4.) Mario Bros. - Colecovision

3.) Pac-Man Collection - Colecovision

2.) D2K Arcade - Intellivison

1.) Vector Pilot - Vectrex

 

What?!?!?!? Wait a minute...... top "HOMEBREW" games?????? You do realize every one of these titles is a "PORT" of an actual/existing arcade game?

 

Stay Frosty 1 & 2 (Spiceware) is a homebrew ............

They're still home brews. I didn't select any games that were e.g. conversions of MSX or SG-1000 games to the ColecoVision.
