Incredible news and one of them is Save Mary which the Critic has not reviewed. This is an unreleased game from 1990. So it must be time for the Critic to get these new amazing mega games that defined a generation, oh and now it has bowling.

I didn't really understand how to control Save Mary. Bowling was pretty fun. Also I thought Aquaventure was a nice addition.

Disappointed in them being pretty much all 2600 games plus one Lynx title. At least the Lynx title is Warbirds which is a pretty impressive game. I think Atari's arcade games could've used a pinch or two, but, hey, it's free anyway.

You pick up the girders with the winch at the top. Then drop them near Mary, she climbs on them to avoid the water. It slowly creeps up you keep building the girders until you are level with the top of the whole. Then you pick up Mary and put her on dry land. Then the game repeats but is slightly harder. I can see why it was not released. It is interesting but not something you would buy, though Atari put out a limited edition of it at 60 bucks. Wowza!!

I’m now an Atari VCS user and I found this game on the VCS Store for at least $20 because all the games are cheap.

No, I mean that in a good way: I even managed to buy Berserk (2600) for a few dollars and Circus Atari (2600 also) was free the last time I looked in the VCS Store.

Am I the only one here who enjoys the Atari VCS?

It is not cheap to buy in the UK. Although I would like one, I cannot justify the cost. If it was £200 is a joystick, that would be okay but the cheapest I have seen it is £320 and for that price I might as well buy a ps4 and get loads of games with it.
