    I’m so confused how that pattern works Bootsy. Great video guys, keep it up!

    One of my favourite Activision games for the Atari 2600 was “Megamania”. It was also a game my dad loved as well. Plus, that commercial:

    There is a really good game on andriod and ios by Riot that uses league of legends characters called Blitzcrank’s Poro Roundup that is a modern day clone of this game. Until I saw this video I thought that it was an original game. Thank you for posting this video I love learning new things about the history of video games.

    MIKE you need to do Abobo’s Big Adventure for James & Mike Mondays!! – it takes about an hour to do the whole game. Split it into 3 episodes!!

      There is a link to the “full” non-browser version on that page as well, maybe easier to record.

    What a gyp!! I thought it would be the Stampede Jackpot Progressive slot machine. You know, the one in Vegas. THAT would make a great Mike & Bootsy episode. They could do a raod trip and play all of Vegas funniest slot machines. Wonder if these chaps spend any time in Vegas. IT’S A STAAAAAAAMPEEEEEEDE!!!!!!

      Seriously, though, you guys do a great service. That’s one thing that I don’t like about modern games. They may be better graphically, but the “spirit” is lacking. I don’t know how to describe it exactly, but the quality and the magic isn’t quite there. Can’t describe it, or my post will be deleted, but I wish that more game developers would approach their games the way Activision and Atari did. Thanks for helping to keep classic gaming alive!

    It would be cool if you guys completed Pitfall II: Lost Caverns and got all of the big point “items” (diamond ring, Rhonda, Quickclaw, and cave rat). It seems like it is one of the most complete adventure-type games for the Atari 2600 compared to something on the NES.

    Man, this shit was my number one favorite game on the 2600. It’s been ages since I played it last and I don’t remember the exact details, but Bootsy’s strategy about juggling the dark brown cattle and opening small holes one at a time to control where new cattle will appear is definitely coming back to me watching this. Simple to get into, deeper than it appears, relatively easy to figure out once you learn how the game works, yet still something that requires your full attentention and need to qickly react properly. Fucking perfect.
