Yup, I've been on a C64 fix since I've been back from Play Expo, so I got some Jeff Minter games, GridRunner and Attack of the Mutant Camels. I got Buffalo Round Up which was a recommendation from a youtube video. The a couple of non C64 stuff such as a sealed Game & Watch Mini Classics version of Mario's Cement Factory and a GameBoy Color version for Yar's Revenge.

The rules in Yar's Revenge is a little different on the GBC version from the Atari 2600. You have to eat 3 or more block from the force field, then go to the far left to prep the Zorlon cannon. Plus you don't earn a life for each time you hit the swirl with the Zorlon missile in mid flight, so it's tougher than it's Atari counterpart.

The screen is split as well and scrolls horizontally.

Still a good version though.

True... but in a way I prefer the original.

I just played Attack of the Mutant Camels, I was amazed with how quick the tape loaded, must have taken a minute or so. By far the quickest tape I've seen load.

I've really been concentrating on building up my C64 cartridge collection. Doing pretty well with over 70 or so and some nice rare ones too!

Well, these are tapes. The only carts I have are Terminator 2 and C64anabalt. What I got from Feebay are all tapes. But as I said I was amazed with how quickly Attack of the Mutant Camels loaded, most of my tapes take between 5-15 minutes, but AMC took about a minute or so.
