ThorN wins round #3/12 Bubble Ghost +

21 03 2010

This time I have to concratulate myself. I scored late and was able to beat Xerus.Not only I scored late, but also Andrew who earned a good 3rd place for his score.

ThorN’s opinion on: Bubble Ghost + average
The game is one of my favorites I have to say. The game play is really unique. You controll a ghost and you have to blow a bubble to the end of each screen. You have to avoid to colide with the bubble with the background and a lot of obstacles. In some levels you could old blow on other things like candles, or horns to turn of the candle or a ventilator.

So the gameplay is more or less explained in a few words. The graphics are great, the sound is not existing or you don’t recognize it.

The game has not that many suprises, but it’s a solid game where you have to be very accurate with your bubble to reach the next level. The faster you are, the more points you get.

RMKO April 2010 / HomeCon VI

17 03 2010

On the last HomeCon we held a kickoff tournament again, this time with five participants. It was indeed a very interesting and relaxed event, despite or maybe just because of many breaks and an unceremonious procedure.
There were some close and exciting games and in every single game at least one goal was scored.

So here are the results:

Juan S  1 – 3  Jan K
Thorsten B  7 – 0  Holger H
Thorsten B  2 – 4  Frank F
Holger H  0 – 2  Jan K
Holger H  0 – 2  Juan S
Jan K  1 – 9  Frank F
Jan K  1 – 4  Thorsten B
Frank F 17 – 0  Juan S
Frank F  6 – 0  Holger H
Juan S  0 – 6  Thorsten B
Jan K  1 – 0  Juan S
Holger H  0 – 9  Thorsten B
Frank F  5 – 0  Thorsten B
Jan K  2 – 1  Holger H

Changes in the Hardware park

14 03 2010

I give away two of my Amiga at the HomeCon 6. First of all a Amiga 2000. I bought the machine from a college some 5-6 years ago. It was a Amiga with 2 Disks drives, and it served since then as my main Kick Off maschine. The maschine was really great. It could play Kick off without any problems, what else you wanted to have.

The machine itself is ugly, it feels like a PC and beside the big Amiga Label, it looks like a PC. So finally I came to the decision, to play with my other Amigas and gave this one away.

I also gave  away my A500. I never wanted to buy it, but when I bought my A1200, the seller gave no power supply away with the A1200, so I had to buy a A500 as well only for the power supply. The machine also served well during the Kick Off German championship 2006, that’s why it had a Kick Off label.

Beside the A600 I bought last week, I got more new machines I planed before at the HomeCon 6. First I changed a Coleco steering wheel for the colecovision against a Interton VC4000 console, only that Hessi could finally get rid of it. But it’s the only German gamin console ever produced (maybe the new OpenPandora could count as Number 2), and it looks good on top of my shoes board.

Before I went to the HomeCon, I went to my neighbor  to get the Boxes of the A600 and 1084S monitor I bought last week. There I found a Sega Saturn, with US power supply and no game (beside a Dreamcast one) and no controllers.

Finally in exchange for the A2000 and some extra money I  got a Atari 5200 with some 🙂 extras. I always wanted to have a 5200, so I’m really happy to have it. Next I need some time to get into the system.
