TI-99/4A VIDEOGAME HOUSE NEWS FROM 2004

DECEMBER 2004

RPG fans beware, Tunnels of Doom (TI) has just been added to the Videogame House. This game is truly a masterpiece and is recommended for anyone that's into classic gaming and role playing games. If you enjoyed "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Treasure of Tarmin" on the Intellivision, you won't want to miss this one! (12/29/04)

The TI-99/4A Videogame House has just gotten a little slimier with the addition of another videogame. That game is none other than Hunt The Wumpus (TI), where you take the role of a daring adventurer trying to slay the Wumpus in his own layer. Also, this game has some connections to the famous TI-99/4A Tunnels of Doom cartridge, visit the Hunt The Wumpus page to find out why! (12/22/04)

After the Thanksgiving holiday it only seemed appropriate to add a video game with a "munching" theme. Of course, the game with the most munch would have to be Munchman (TI)! This is one of the more popular TI-99/4A games thanks in large part to the Pac-Man craze of the early 80s. However, Munchman is not your standard Pac-Man clone (visit the game's page to find out why). Also, for the first time on the Internet screen shots of the 1981 Munchman prototype can be viewed! click on the link above to read up on all you ever wanted to know (and see) about Munchman!  (12/6/04)


NOVEMBER 2004

The newly released TI-99/4A Cartridge Rarity List is now part of the Videogame House! This list was compiled by the TI-99/4A Videogame House and Digital Press. It is the most accurate and up to date listing available on the web for TI video game cartridges, so check it out. This list will be maintained through the years as new cartridges are discovered or rarity ratings adjusted, and it will always be available directly off this main page (just scroll below to the new "Cartridge Rarity List" section). (11/15/04)

Added the Video Chess (TI) cartridge to the Videogame House. Even though it is not an arcade-style game as with most of the other TI-99/4A cartridges, it's still very fun and challenging considering it was designed by International Chess Master David Levy. If you think you're good at Chess, try taking on this "cartridge-based" David Levy for a serious challenge. (11/6/04)


SEPTEMBER 2004

The Main Videogame Cartridge page has been COMPLETELY upgraded. Now the cartridges that are currently on the Videogame House are sorted alphabetically. This should allow people to view the games easier than before. In addition, new graphics were made for the cartridge listing pages. (9/28/04)


AUGUST 2004

The most famous and most popular TI-99/4A video game around has just landed in the TI-99/4A Videogame House. It's the one and only Parsec (TI). Parsec comes complete with a review and 5 screen shots, be sure to check this one out. Now you can visualize what an Intellivision version of Parsec would have looked like! Speaking of which, maybe we need to hold a competition to see who can come up with the best mockup of an Intellivision Parsec screen. (8/19/04)


JULY 2004

Improved the TI-99/4A Videogame House logo and also have added a few more cosmetic changes to some pages. (7/11/04)

News Flash!
The files for both Lobster Bay (Funware) and Ant Colony (Funware) are now available at their respective websites. This is the ONLY place on the net to find these newly discovered TI-99/4A cartridges. They can be played on MESS or the V9T9 emulator. Have fun! (7/2/04)

News Flash! The TI-99/4A Videogame House has just came into possession of two previously unknown TI-99/4A cartridges. Both of them are by Funware in 1983. The first is called Ant Colony, where you control an exterminator on a mission to eliminate deadly ants. The second game is Lobster Bay, 14 screen shots for this game are now posted on-line. This is the first glimpse of this game on the net, be sure to check it out! More to come later as we sort out all the recent discoveries! (7/1/04)


JUNE 2004

Updated the feel of the Munchmobile (SNK Electronics) page. If you try clicking on the Munchmobile screen shots they will open up in a pop-up window that can be re-sized to the dimensions you wish! It's pretty cool and worth checking out as you can view the screen shots as big as your screen. I plan on implementing this feature to all pages in the near future. Thanks for Kim Lemon at Lemon64 for the help on the screen shot pop-up window!  (6/9/04)


APRIL 2004

The Othello (CBS Electronics) game was just added to the site. Othello appeared on numerous systems by various companies, including the Atari 2600. While maybe not as exciting as the arcade translations by CBS, it still provides a challenge for those that love to play board games! (4/8/04)

Just found out about this cool remake of the TI-99/4A version of Blasto, called Blasto 3D. This remake is based upon Milton Bradley's TI port of the Sega/Gremlin arcade original. It's great to see some TI-99/4A games being remade for today's gamers, Blasto 3D can be downloaded and played on your PC by following the link above. Be sure to check this one out! (4/3/04)
