  1. Version 1.0


    In 1989, Atari Corp. (UK) Ltd. publishes Hellraider on DOS. Also published on Amiga, this action game is abandonware and is set in a sci-fi / futuristic, shooter and shmup.
  2. Tempest 2000 is a pretty great time, but it's time for a new version of Tempest for a new generation. Rather than having a Tempest clone on the PS4, Atari instead chose to have the devs behind Txk, Llamasoft, work on an official Tempest game instead. The result is Tempest 4000... but how does it stack up?
  3. Atari 2600 - Akihabara Blues
  4. Centipede (C64)
  5. Asteroids (C64)
  6. Akabei Aosuke Guzuta Pac-Man and Pinky Atari drawn by Travis Pitts

  8. This time no game character but a game that has been ported many times. It is amazing to see that some ports even copy the handwritten Williams by 'handwriting' their own or the company name. Then there's the explosions that are all very similar. The game screen layout including the radar - which does not really seem to work properly in the c64 version I got - is very very similar for quite a number of the ports. The two Odyssey2 games that flash in between somewhere don't really belong but do resemble the gameplay just a tad. But I had it connected so I thought ...'what the hell'...
  9. Just a quick video of me checking out the Vic-20 game catalog. This time it's Centipede. I may have to revisit this in another video as the video is fuzzy as h*ll. It plays at quite a different pace when compared to the 2600 version which is blazingly fast! Love to get my hands on the Millipede 2600 game as this is awesome and is just as fast and introduces even more action into what is basically the same game!
  10. My Centipede mania continues. This game is a pleasant surprise when you haven't played it before. The gameplay is quite fast. The 'ship/pod' controls very well with precise movements possible - even more so than on the 2600 on my systems at least. The spider is as creapy as the arcade original and the animations of all the on screen baddies is amazing. This shows off the 'arcade quality graphics and gameplay' of the Colecovision.
  11. Checking out Centipede on the Atari 7800 console.
  12. Checking out Centipede on the Atari 5200 console.
  13. RetrogamerVX's original video found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBX_5HLBNEo Defender (Vic 20): 034625 Defender (Intellivision): 8175 Defender (Atari 800XL): 6725 Defender (Arcade): 1500, 4225, 4800 Defender II (Nes): 8000

    River Raid - Coleco vs MSX - a comparison (SD)

    Gameplay footage of the Colecovision game as well as the MSX game. The game is virtually identical on both platforms. The Colecovision joystick makes it a little harder to play but it is a good version. River Raid on my Colecovision vs is a response to xTHExSTIGx's highscore challenge. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuA6srj6FuY&feature=channel_video_title
  15. In this video I am trying to play Gyruss on the Atari 8-bit home computer range (800XL/130XE) and I talk a bit about the game, life, the universe and everything on the side. It is a very fun game and belongs right up there with my all-time favorites (time pilot, gyruss are right up there). Intro music by ZombieAndy1979 http://www.youtube.com/user/ZombieAndy1979

    Mark plays... Thunderfox on Atari 8bit (HD)

    In this video I am trying to play Thunderfox on the Atari 8-bit home computer range (800XL/130XE) and I talk a bit about the game, life, the universe and everything on the side. Thunderfox appears to be a Uridium clone - or as close to Uridium as you are going to get on the Atari I reckon. It plays a tad different though - so different in fact that I have no idea how to play this. The son of the game creator got in touch with me and pointed me towards this review which explains how to play this gem of a game properly: http://abscape.org/legeek/f_atarian_s2_thunder.htm

    Beamrider (Atari 2600) Highscore Challenge

    I dare you to beat my highscore on the 2600 game 'Beamrider' if you can please try to make a video response and reply to this video. Beamrider is a game by Activision and it has also been ported to other platforms like the Colecovision, Intellivision, Commodore 64. The scoring seems to be the same on the other platforms, yet the difficulty seems to be a little different so scores may not be comparable across the various systems. I will ask Interghost to put this Atari 2600 challenge video on his Retro Records blog. You can find that great initiative for competitive arcade high scores here: http://interghosthouse.blogspot.co.uk/

    Mark Plays.... Sea Quest (Atari 2600)

    A nice arcade game by Activition, Sequest. Released in North America on the 2600. I try to beat Tony aka ElectricAdventures' amazing run of this game found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYkH-5QvGWg █▬█ █ ▀█▀
  19. This is a mix of BreamRider, Defender, Galaga, Gyruss combined and I love it. This is a recent 2600 homebrew port that is very good. You can obtain this game over at Atari Age where it is available in both PAL60 and NTSC flavours, a link to the page can be found here: https://atariage.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=894

    Mark Plays...Time Pilot On The Atari 2600

    Mark Plays... Time Pilot on the Atari 2600 A game released by Konami in 1982/83 on various platforms originating in the arcade. I regard this as one of my favourite arcade shooters.

    Mark Plays... Time Pilot (Homebrew)(Atari 800)

    In honor of Shmup Saturday here's my quick and dirty offering of a new Atari 8bit homebrew port of Time Pilot. Originally part of a competition it can be found here: http://www.vintageisthenewold.com/time-pilot-after-35-years-the-atari-8-bit-computers-get-an-awesome-port/

    Centipede (Atari 7800) - test recording

    Just a small test recording testing out my equipment.
  23. This is truly an odd slice of nostalgia. I was a major fan of Howard Scott Warshaw's fantastic Atari 2600 shooter Yars' Revenge. Never came across this, or any of the other Kid Stuff Records, back in the day.... but I'm glad I came across it now. It's sooooo bad! Great stuff! So have a listen to an early 80's cheese-ball musical story of the game Yar's Revenge.... and thank me later. 😆
  24. Version 3992


    Typhoon 2001 is a remake of the Atari Jaguar classic game Tempest 2000. T2K, as it is sometimes called, was originally created for Atari by Jeff "Yak" Minter as a remake of the arcade-game Tempest, which was in turn created by Dave Theurer.
