Re: 2018/1/7: Atari 2600: Ski Hunt (Europe), Ski Run (Europe)

Luckyman, I tried Ski Run on B/A and you're right - it's much more manageable. The problem is, now it's too easy and I feel like I can play forever. They could use a middle ground variation. VGC Yeah, I feel that way about a lot of games. They just need one more difficulty level between mind-numbin...

Re: 2018/1/7: Atari 2600: Ski Hunt (Europe), Ski Run (Europe)

Nice reviews! I'm also fascinated with these weird and wonderful PAL games which is why I started a thread on AtariAge a few years back to finish converting these games so we could play them on our NTSC TV's. http://atariage.com/forums/topic/146775-pal-ntsc-conversions/ Like many of the conversions,...

Re: 1982: A Christmas to Remember

Very enjoyable article, Dave! I think my favorite Atari Christmas was probably 1981. My brother and I had gotten our Sears VCS the previous year along with quite a few games including Tank-Plus (Combat), Basketball, Maze Mania, Dodger Cars and Space Invaders, but at Christmas 1981 we received Astero...

Re: 2017/12/8: Atari 7800: Asteroids, Astro Fighter

Very nice reviews! I picked up Astro Fighter a while ago. I wasn't as impressed with it as I was with Astro Blaster. I should probably give it another try.

Re: Shark Attack (Atari 2600/Maze)

I much prefer Lost Luggage, Infiltrate and my favorite, Spacechase, which the critic didn't care for. Most of the other Apollo games aren't very good.

Re: 2017/7/15: Colecovision: Oil's Well, Pitfall II: Lost Caverns

Very nice reviews! Oil's Well is a favorite of mine and I agree about Pitfall II... I find a bit more frustrating than the Atari 2600 version.

Re: Old Mechanical Games

I have Hungry Hungry Hippos, Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots, Mousetrap and Operation. My daughter and I used to play all of those quite a lot when she was younger. I don't know if they're in the same category, but I also have two newer games: Don't Wake Daddy and Gassy Gus that you have to press a button ...
