Just a little background, these cartridges (available from atariage.com/store) require a pokey chip, which are in short supply. You can buy the games for a premium or send them your own pokey chips to save money. I bought two off ebay for $15 a pop.

As you can see, it was worth it. I'm especially proud of these reviews but I'd like to get your feedback.

Two superb reviews. I still have a 7800 and that is why I love your 7800 reviews. Bentley looks a little tough for me. Circus sounds great.

Great reviews! I also recently picked up these two games. Super Circus AtariAge is now one of my favorite 7800 homebrews. Wonderfully addictive!

"When I finally mastered the controls, it began to grow on me. I like the way the difficulty ramps up and gradually introduces new enemies. The game has endless continues so you can practice those tricky levels until you get it right."

We'll make a Dark Souls fan out of you yet, Critic!

I love Crystal Castles. I would totally buy another Bentley Bear game... if I had a 7800, that is. Maybe someday. Anyway, thanks for bringing this game to my attention.
