Microleague Baseball (Atari XEGS)

Will be looking forward to the Star League Baseball review.....there wasn't a better baseball game made for the C-64 or Atari computers.

Computers Playing Chess

I always thought Atari 2600 Video Chess was very impressive (especially considering how early on it was released).  Impressive...... to this novice player that only plays level 2.  The computer AI is very good and the flickering screen between moves is long enough to allow for a ...

First Gaming Addiction?

Space Invaders at Skateland.....being 8 or 9 years old and praying that the older teenagers playing it would respect gaming decorum (placing my quarter on the corner of the glass) and let me play when their game was done.  When I saw the Atari 2600 version - it cemented me as a gamer for life.<...

Favorite Intellivision game of all time.

I enjoy seeing new threads on these often-discussed type of topics.  You get older, opinions (or memory) can change....it never gets boring to me.<br /><br />Diner, Happy Trails, Thin Ice......all rank amongst my all-time favorites.  But put me down for AD & D Cloudy Mountain...

2014/3/4: Commodore 64: Elite, Winter Games

Having just recently acquired Winter Games I agree with the review 100%.  The snowy and winterish graphics are amazing!  The controls are difficult but this is a fun game to spend some time on during a winter's day.  An excellent (and humorous) review - I certainly find seeking C...

Your favorite Atari 2600 game of all time

Put me down for H.E.R.O. as well.  After looking at the 2600 games that have A grades it was always baffling to me how H.E.R.O. rates just a B grade by the Critic.  The difficulty ramps up perfectly and the control is just right for this type of game.   It is my number ...

Boulderdash for the C-64

HOW IN THE HECK DID I MISS THIS GAME THE FIRST TIME AROUND IN THE 1980's?!?!?!?!? <br /><br />My curiosity was getting the better of me after seeing the Critic's "Coming Attractions" list (for the Atari XEGS) for this title and forum talk on AtariAge about an upcoming homebrew release for ...

Second Annual Carol vs. The World! Championship Now Underway

While I am not participating in this challenge I just want to comment on how amazing this game is!  I bought my cart late in the fall of 2012 and was astonished at how fun and addicting it was.  The intermissions between the different screens are a treat as well.   It i...

The price of retro gaming

Over the weekend I bid $405.00 for a Atari 5200 Bounty Bob Strikes Back and lost.......

Kids - don't drink and Ebay!  But if you must drink, have a friend unplug your computer!

Commodore 64: 4th & Inches, Raid Over Moscow

<p>I enjoyed the honest review of 4th & Inches.  When I say "honest" it is simply because this is one of those games where my wonderful memories of being a teenager playing it against my friends clouds the truth - the game is pretty good but not great.  Make no mistake, we we...
