A console Evercade would be a fascinating thing!

Another new cartridge was announced yesterday. This one is all about new indie games for retro consoles. This is a neat idea, looking forward to it.

Yes, I got this message too! They don't say when it is coming but the mix of games is nice!  I am not preordering this from Amazon.  Not after they cancelled two of my orders.

Metal Jesus was sent the 4 upcoming Evercade cartridge compilations, which include two volumes of Atari Lynx games and made this video to show how they came out. Even though most folks probably have the real games in their collection, it's cool to see the Atari Lynx get more mainstream love like this.  Also.. it's neat that the Evercade also supports the Left/Right hand feature of the Lynx too.

Cartridge 1 is mostly 17 Songbird Production licensed titles like:
Crystal Mines II
Dracula The Undead
Gordo 106
Loopz
Power Factor
Super Asteroids / Super Missile Command
Scrapyard Dog
Super Skweek
Xump

Cartridge 2 are all Epyx games:
California Games
Chips Challenge
Checkered Flag
Todd’s Adventures in Slimeworld
Electro Cop
Gates of Zendocon
Zarlor Mercenary
Blue Lightning

I'm looking forward to these Lynx carts. I have some of the original games but not all of them and it will be nice to play them on a better screen.

I think I'm going to hold off pre-ordering these. I'll buy them eventually after they get released next year but there's nothing on these two collections that I'm that excited about.

The latest two carts arrived last week so I played some Xeno Crisis and some of the Dizzy games over the weekend. :)

Well they announced another new cartridge today.



I know some people are big fans of this series, and I realize it's a lot more popular in the UK and Europe, but I'm disappointed with this one. I've never been a huge Worms fan to begin with and with only 3 games on this cart it's just not a good deal. I will be skipping this one.
