Thanks Elias, but I don´t mean the official Power Lords for Odyssey2. I mean the "new" release from Retrogenesis (see picture).

This great release was (also like the first edition of Route66) a highlight in Videopac history. He make only 10 ! (TEN !) copys of it.

Because of that, I love (>:() releases from Retrogenesis till today.

You can read about this game here: http://videopac.nl/forum/index.php?topic=1489.0 (http://videopac.nl/forum/index.php?topic=1489.0)

It´s interesting to read. We lost our member "steelballs" because of this release.

... as I said: a great release.  >:(  (I really need a puked Munchkin here)...

:D  Crazy Horse... great story!

By the way… I have also a unreleased prototype. I bought it with many other Videopacgames und Eproms years ago at ebay.nl.

It`s a unreleased PARKER game. The name is :

The Lord of the Rings-Journey to Rivendell

The special about this game is:
This is the one and only game from Parker for Videopac+ game computers.
The gfx is amazing, more than 80 screens with highresolution scrolling background in LOTR style.

I can`t show you the game in action, because…….. I can`t and I don`t want.

This is my precious!  >:D   :D

Wow, this is the first Videopac game that is larger than 16k!
With the bank switching as used in Videopac 60 it is possible to make a 512k Videopac game!

Indeed! This cartrigde needs, because of that, a water cooling system!

But it looks quite cool in a transparent Videopac cartridge.

10 copys= -1 copy Seop  -1 copy René = 8 copys.  :o
 
Does that mean, there are only 8 copys made  ???

That is much more worse than I thought.

Awesome! Looks great in the videopac-box also. Such a pity to have missed the boat in 2010. Maybe contact all the 10 collectors in the list mentioned and give it a try. You never know if one of them want to get rid of some games after 6 years ;).

We could always release a new batch, with a authentic cover, with logical numbering and no logo. Should have the artwork somewhere on my pc.

So let´s see:

1  ANDY RYALS (I think, he won´t give away his first copy of his release and I won´t ask him)
2  MJB (still collecting)
3  GRGH (still collecting)
4  IMMERGRUEN (still collecting)
5  VIDEOPAKBELGIUM (VIDEOPACBELGIUM-is still collecting)
6  ALMEOHI (?)
7  TOM31 (still collecting)
8  SEOB (not payed his copy and still collecting)
9  RENEG7400 (not received his copy and still collecting)
10 CARDINAL (still collecting)


I am not sure if Almeohi (I think the right name is Almoehi) is still collecting... The rest is collecting. There you can see, Videopac has loyal fans. :)  

We could always release a new batch, with a authentic cover, with logical numbering and no logo. Should have the artwork somewhere on my pc.

I would like to see a new european release in Videopac style. To be honest, I would like to see the release of Rafaels Videopac+ version. I really like it.

When this release was announced, I  think that the intention was to launch the Power Lords Plus, do not oppose me in this release, I think it was something that would justify the release. IMO, I equate these Retrogenesis  releases to some games released here in Brazil (copies of games like Mr. Roboto, Amok, Calculator) or those 5 copies of Frogger released in the US by a former member of another forum. In my opinion that this is much more to piracy, than a real intention to create a real product for fans of the console. It does not seem honest, I do not think something fan to fan and can not believe that the people involved are really fans of the console. There is no intellectual effort or care about it all. It's all done very crudely, bad taste, and I say, there is nothing to show passion in this release. Comando Noturno: will be that there was some intention and / or fix the bug of the game and oh yes do something worthwhile. I bet not even played the game. Also remember that at the time CCC had plans to launch Robot City, but since we wanted to get ahead, they could have at least have made some effort to do something at the CCC level. What I mean is that I consider these products as much piracy that a serious release and a collectible item. Waht the real diference between this Power Lords or the brazilian Tutankham?

I think those early releases where just made in the early days of the "homebrew" scene. Everybody wanted to do something, and in hindsight this wasn't the best for the console.
For me it was nice to have my name on a actual release, although sadly my drawing skill are non existing. I didn't get paid anything, and also had to pay full price for the games so for me it was only a labor of love for the system.
Would i have been mad if somebody other would have released the game, no, or if other artwork was used, no.
I was just happy to help, anyway i could.
But it wasn't only retrogenesis that had it's share of bad releases. Others also had some poor releases.
I think we all just went a bit to fast in to little time.

I am not an argument about what is good or bad, I am arguing more about the honesty of work and ethical values.

Oh yes! Of course.  :)

I found an auction with a N60 and 15 games. One of this 15 games were Jopac Baby Foot I wanted to have.
You won the auction, but the seller won`t sell all to you, because it was not enough money for him.

Before he get trouble with eBay, he sold only the Baby Foot to you. And you give it to me.  8)
