I was wondering if anyone has played any of these, as I just posted in regards to the online/downloadable versions in another thread. Play the official ColecoVision or 2600 ports (good luck finding the special joystick for the latter nowadays!)? How about the Vic-20 clone?
I played the Omega Chase clone on a Vectrex emulator once; can't say I have the cartridge. The middle shape changes every few levels if I remember correctly, changing the strategy for the game. Pretty groovy!
I have a hand full of Vic-20 games mostly text games. I have Radar Rat Race and it is a nice change from RallyX even if it is the same game.
Since I have the Coleco and 2600 versions of Omega Race it is also nice to hear about other versions. Sometimes the same theme gets old and needs a change in game play even if it is just changing the graphics a little.
This IS cool though, I think. At least they did something with that (even though minor), as I don't think there was much of an excuse for, say, a powerful computer (as compared to most consoles back then) couldn't do much with the Space Invaders genre, such as TI Invaders vs. all the variations that the 2600 Space Invaders had.
There were just two skill levels to choose from and that was it. Still a good game though, as the bonus round with the u. f. o.s was a bit different.
