Batch 36 : Who wants to be a Millionaire ? I do ?

We have rain today and it is not so cold as a few weeks ago. Despite that, we all dream of having lots of money and visiting America, going to Vegas and blowing an obscene amount of money at the Casino's. Well, now you can do part of this in the safety of your own home without losing a penny and getting scared about long haul flights.
Vegas Jackpot on the Atari plays and feels the same as the Commodore 64 version. The loading time is modest and you can still have a lot of fun with it. Again, this is another Atari addition, there maybe a title or two for the Commodore 64 coming up soon.

Atari ::

Mastertronic ::
Vegas Jackpot

For those that are curious and interested to know how many and what titles are left ( 19'ish ) to collect for the Commodore 64 platform :

Americana ::
Alcazar, Raid and Tunnel Vision

Bulldog ::
Dr. Jackel and Mr. Wide and Spore

Until the next time ...


  1. I replied to this but it doesn't appear to have gone through. Oh well. Anyway, I don't think I've got any of them unfortunately... possibly one or two of the Ricochet games. I used to have a few others but my parents threw them out years ago... *sob*

  2. Thanks for letting me know, Mate. I have managed to find one from the Ricochet list, hopefully it should be here by the weekend ! ;)

  3. I'll have a look when I get the chance... unfortunately, my C64 games are in an Amiga box, right at the bottom of my substantial retro pile!

  4. I shall be very surprised if you find Ski-Writer. I remember being asked to test it (as it was not a game, our normal games testers were not interested). We sold very few and never again tried to sell a business related product.

  5. I think Ski-Writer will be a tough one to find as well. I did see someone in the States selling one from 2009 on Disk through a forum. I don't think the title is in any C64 Archives online either.
