TI-99/4A VIDEOGAME HOUSE NEWS FROM 2004
O 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)
O 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)
O 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)
O 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)
O 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)
O 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)
O 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)
O Improved the TI-99/4A Videogame House logo and also
have added a few more cosmetic changes to some pages.
Flash! The TI-99/4A
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!
O 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)
O It's official, the TI-99/4A Videogame House now has its own domain. So enjoy the site at its new location, and if anyone finds any problems with broken links, images, etc just send a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be sure to look into it. Expect new updates to be coming in the next few days. (3/20/04)
O Uploaded 3 sound clips to Dig-Dug(Atarisoft). This game had some "pumping" tunes to it, so be sure to check them out! (2/22/04)
O Just added a new game to the site. Let's see if you can figure it out! Does the phrase "@!*?!!" give you a hint? That's right, Q*Bert (Parker Brothers) is now on-line! (2/14/04)
4 new cartridges to the site, the Gamevision versions of Connect
Four, Hangman, Yahtzee,
and Zero Zap. These 4 titles were the
titles for the TI-99/4 in 1979 and sold by Milton Bradley. Check out
games if you want to get a glimpse into the beginnings of the TI-99/4A.
O Added a Links page to connect people who visit here to the other hot spots on the web for Classic Gaming. (1/5/04)
O With all the talk of the Mars probe recently, I decided a space theme game was in order for this site. So I added the Moon Mine (TI) Detail Page, enjoy your stay on the moon! (1/7/04 8:35 PM)O I finally got around to some updating, and it's the first update for 2004! I added 3 sound clips to the Burgertime (Data East) page. Now you can feel like you're actually playing the game! (1/5/04 3:43 PM)
