It's freakin' 8 bit paradise. I can't begin to imagine how many quarters I plunked into Q*bert and Galaga and Joust and Berzerk and Rally-X and.... damn. That's enough quarters to buy a dozen speaker docks.
@KDemo Crazy Climber addict here -- loved that game so much I used CrazyClimber as my IRC handle for years. But yeah, I looked for Centipede -- it would be great if he could get that to work with trackpads.
Oh, and note that there are links up there that'll bring you to both console emulators and vintage computer emulators. Unfortunately, Atari is being dickish about letting people play its games, but tons of great ones from other companies are still in the 2600 section.
I was really hoping Mr. Do wasn't there or if it were, that it wouldn't load. Right now I'm operating under the assumption that there's no way to get the sound to work right in my environment so I definitely won't be playing it when I'm supposed to be doing something else.
@JerseyFrank It seems like the sound is the most troublesome aspect of the app, so it's turned off by default, but the "Unmute" button should work for many of these. He talks about it more in the ascii.textfiles.com link above.
I never realized how short Golden Axe was! I guess when I was a kid playing it in the arcade I never had enough quarters or something, but I just beat it in a pretty short amount of time at work :) Thanks for the link!
You'd think that somehow, considering they have games with anteaters, bees, bulls, centipedes, chickens, devil fish, frogs, globs, gorillas, jackrabbits, kangaroos, ladybugs, mice, millipedes, ostriches, penguins, road runners, sharks, snakes, spiders, turtles, and tigers, they'd have one goat somewhere. I mean... anteaters.
