I tried to configure "Fire Button" as right control, space...seems nothing working.

I have seen some Odyssey games being ported to many systems, but since Odyssey is my # 1 console and Invt is my 2nd favorite, I always wanted to see something converted to Intv. Now someone started to make KB pro Intv too.

I have often the feeling, that outside the members of this page, nearly nobody like our system.
Since my childhood, I must defend my system against unjustified assertion.  Evil

But now it`s interesting to see, that our best games, appear just on that systems, that my „friends“ in school had in that time: Atari 2600 / C64 / INTV…

And the most funny thing is, that our games look and play on "better" systems not better.   Cheesy

That`s the irony of live.  Grin

Oh, I like the old Sega advertising slogan:

THE BETTER ONE WINS

I don’t know why that is. I use left-shift and right-shift for my fire buttons.

@tombeck
Yes the Ody/Vpac fanbase is relatively small but I can understand because, be fair, most of the games aren’t that much fun to play and there were hardly any arcade titles, which people were looking for to play in the eighties (the arcades were the ultimat gaming experience back then). The Ody got a boom in sales when they released Munckin, a pacman “clone” but that was stopped by Atari.
So, the games that are great to play hardly ever got noticed, Killer Bees being one of them. I never played that game until I started collecting in the nineties.

Nowadays games are starting to get recognition from fans of other systems and clones are starting to appear. Most of them not very good but some are nice:

-K.C. Munchkin for the Atari 7800
-Defend Your Castle for the 2600 (Very heavely based on Stonesling)
-Lost In Space for the Atari XL (A four player version of Spac Rendezvous).

This is just by heart, I’m sure I’m forgetting a couple.
And yes, I guess the Ody/Vpac will remain an underdog system, but I kinda like that.  Grin

I also saw this today and I'm happy that this exceptionally great game is also seeing a release on other systems Smiley

I would also be happy to play this on an Atari VCS but there is no version of the game for it. I'm taking a look at the Intellivision development of the game. Thanks for sharing this. Smiley

Thanks, this is a lot of fun on my emulator.

Unfortunately, this won't start up on my real ntsc machine Sad

Only boots at all in real drive emulation mode (slow) off my SD card (1541 Ultimate II), and then freezes at the press joystick button to start screen... The same thing happens on the emulator if it's set to ntsc c64...
