Champ Games Home Brew Update (Public Post)

Champ Games (John W. Champeau) has a reputation for producing some of the best home brew ports for the Atari 2600.

Champ Games' previous releases for the 2600

Conquest of Mars  (port of Atari 8-bit game Caverns of Mars)

Lady Bug 

Mappy

Scramble

Super Cobra Arcade

Previously I mentioned that John W. Champeau (Champ Games) informed me of his upcoming home brew releases for the Atari 2600, all to be published by AtariAge. John has since given me some additional information. He has graciously given me permission  to post this information here on my Patreon account.  I've condensed most of our back-and-forth comments.

These are all ports of arcade games. All are planned for release in 2019.

(Release order)

Wizard of Wor Arcade

Galaga  already 90% complete. May end up being renamed to Galagon to avoid "hassles."

Zoo Keeper

I mentioned to John that, sadly, I don't have a Boxed Edition of "Lady Bug." His reply ...

As for Lady Bug boxed edition, Atari Age member "Brian O" approached me a few months ago with some designs for a box for both Lady Bug and Conquest of Mars.  He has since worked with Nathan Strum (he did the graphics for both games) and Al @ AtariAge to finalize the boxes; Al will be adding this option to the store soon.  I think he may also have a "box only" option for those who have previously bought the games and want to add the box to their collection. 

Yes, feel free to mention Zoo Keeper on your Patreon account and I hope you are feeling better! :) 

I'm also missing the box for "Scramble." I mentioned that to John. I'll keep you updated as to how he replies.
