I received my copy of Adventure II for the Atari 5200. A homebrew sequel to Adventure for the Atari 2600. Essentially the same game. You are a yellow block on a quest to find the Gold Chalice and return it to the Seashore Kingdom’s Castle. Same dragons to avoid, some new fiends added as well. For instance, there is an evil troll who likes to steal stuff (replaces bat). I’ve only begun playing the game, but looks like a top notch sequel, that takes advantage of the extra power of the Atari 5200.

Only 250 cartridges were made. I’m guessing that there will be less than 100 left when the store starts selling them again. The Atari Age Store currently says “sold out” as I type, but that was so Albert could get caught up on orders. Better snarf one up when the store opens again. Here is the thread that announced that the game was shipping.

    I didn’t know you owned a 5200!

    It was my Christmas present to myself… an ebay purchase. Here is my blog post on it… http://zoyx.livejournal.com/217308.html

    I see you ended up repairing yours too. I bought two kits for mine. Both joysticks work great now.
