Thanks, yep most of the amiga pinballs were super, we player them a lot. I think digitally, it started with RadioBall back on the coco.
I had pin mame together with a table simulator long time ago, we played a lot of Elvira and tales of the arabian nights, both one of my favorites where tons of cash had gone on the real thing.

A lot of awesome stuff in this thread!

I found a virtual video game console a couple months ago named the PICO-8.

Just curious if anyone has seen it and made a game for it?

It is very retro style!

http://www.lexaloffle.com/pico-8.php

Some of the better games I've seen so far are:

Puzzle Cave
Alien Abduction
Across the River
Kingslayers

There are many more that have been made including some tech demo stuff.

I thought some of you might be interested in checking it out. I really like stuff like this.

Haven't actually messed around with it yet although I am thinking I might soon!

I know about it, I follow up lexaloffe since it first released Voxatron, I´m also a huge fan of the way he makes music.

Also, here is a homebrew gauntlet style game on the COCO II

It looks pretty neat to me, specially me being the best player there is on Time Bandit. :whistle:

Graphics is pretty simple, but well defined and nice use of colors.

Jeje this game is really interesting for done a port for mobiles devices (something similar) , easy in graphics and the code not too much complex.
About the C64 is amazing something do the computer, in the first level the tail of the player have something like transparence , but no 1 or 0 like happend in Amstrad , the title of Stage remind me a lot the real arcade machines

NIce extrange and interesting game.Thks for sharing.

Mightbeen im should post this into a new thread, but since its still on old formats, im do this here.

Im have played a lots with SidTracker 64 (which also eat quite much battery as well).

Im have converted some of the Jungool (iOS) and Manic Miner - The Lost Levels (Nintendo DS) songs. Both games here, im was the musican for those games, before im discovered Glbasic.

Yes, im might not been the biggest Spectrum fan, but that game was very fun to do the music for that Manic Miner game, property that one im have most fun with music. Im also the original Manic Miner games was better on Spectrum than on C64 if we compare both original versions.

Here is some of the converted songs from both games in sid format (of course):

Glove is great. I hadn't seen that homebrew title before. Time Bandit is such a cool game.

I can created and store tiles to create a maze in just BASIC but it take a few seconds to scroll move to the next room.

Back in 2000, I made a port of JetPac for the GameBoy Color called JetPak DX, it was my first GameBoy game and helped me to learn C and z80 ASM.

im thinks the first program i fininshed was Amos on Amiga.

Currectly im still doing C64 sid files, and have added more Jungool and now with Manic Miner - The Lost Level music (Nintendo DS).

Recently Im even tried to emulate the beeper music from Manic Miner Spectrum to C64. That was quite fun.

Im diddent trought in first round, so im redone the tune from original C64 Manic Miner port instead (which is a quite boring one). Later im got aware C64 music should run in 50hz, and then im could emulate the Speccy tune quite close. That was very fun. Due the nature of the game, im thinks this would works pretty good to let it sound just like the Speccy as one of the tunes, just like im did for Nintendo DS version.

Im also ported the Sam Coupe Manic Miner tune as well to C64, here with normal C64 sound, but in same style. The title music is still that classic one, but with my own take on it.

Here the link again (later im will collect it with zip, when im have done mp3 versions):

PS. Greedy Mouse came from Mouse Runner/Xor, a Amos game to Amiga. Im still have that game.
