In order to enable it, press the Android MENU button, go to Settings->Video->Orientation and choose the desired screen orientation.

CollectorVision has a plan to launch a wild game called "Super Car".
Behind the game is Keith Erickson, a Cartoonist, Animator, Game designer and a Humorist.
The game is launched in Flash and imitated a real ColecoVision game.
But retroillucid at CollectorVision ask Kieth for his permission to use the whole concept for a real ColecoVision game, and he got a yes from him.
In the first stage you drive your car around in a cemetery and must knock down as many tombstones as possible.
2nd. stage are you under a sea, here you must hit as many mermaids as you can without getting hit by the fallen anchors.
In 3rd. round are you out into the big Grand Canyon, here you must jump from peak to peak to get some points.
After that will you in your car goes to the outer space, here you must shoot down spaceships in large numbers, then race against none other than Haley's comet.
At last you pass a black hole and come back in time, here you have to run over in your car giant dinosaurs of the past.
But be careful not to get hit by glowing lava from nearby volcanoes.
I think this Flash game will hit a Cartridge soon, and be for sale late this year or in beginning of 2012.

"
So for now I am basically redoing the stuff I lost while I was in Brazil".
"
I also resumed work with Dale Crum on the game packaging, and as I have been saying for a while, we plan to raise the bar a few notches with the new box and label we have planned".
Eduardo is close of having Donkey Kong Arcade completed, "
the main intro is the only major missing piece."
But focus is also on other projects, like Pengo and Moon Patrol, all games will be published and distributed through Luc at Team Pixelboy.
About the Super Game Module. Last year Eduardo completed the design, which means he included all the tweaks he wanted after the first prototype.
"Additions included the ability of replacing the BIOS with RAM, a couple of extra lines to the parallel port and ADAM compatibility".
Eduardo still need to order the prototype for that, which he has plan to do after Donkey Kong Arcade is done.
"Besides I am more concerned about the SGM case and manufacturing than prototyping at this point, as the main design has already been validated".

Kiwi aka Chuck Woolery has after some initial difficulties decided to release a Text Adventure game.
He is using the ColecoVision programming book made by Newcoleco in 2005 as a guide, also Newcoleco's tools are used.
It's a simple adventure game where you have to chose a choice to win the game.
Wrong pick and you will lose the game.
The Text Adventure game Is not completed, but Kiwi think it's enough to release for now.
The game has no background music and Kiwi do not have it as top priority. "If there's space left over. Then there shall be music".
The previous game "Radiant: I Will Murder Your God" has no information yet on how far into programming kiwi is with this one.

Daniel aka NewColeco presented a guy, completely unknown for many ColecoVision fans all over the world.
His name is Russ Kumro aka RKGames, Russ is a programmer and have programmed several games for especially iPhone iPad and iPod touch.
In 2005 he started to program an unreleased game for ColecoVision, namely Side Trak.
"I found some really crazy things in the old code and i'm really glad i decided on a rewrite of that chunk of code back from 2005."
Daniel already knew Russ as a programmer, and he did artwork for John Dondzillas Game Star Fortress.
It will now, thanks to Russ become published via CollectorVision.
My bid will be once this fall 2011.
But as Russ say: "All i ask is be patient, it will be worth the wait".

Russ got some super cool bonus stuff planned for the game, including an arranged mode with new levels / backgrounds.
Russ still got alot of retooling, coding and graphics to do for the final game".

Luc at Team Pixelboy notes that things have mostly gone back to normal.
Luc would like to have been started on his BasicVision now, but the truth is, he is really tired after processing all his Team Pixelboy orders, and he need a break.
So BasicVision will have to wait until March.
Luc says also the programmer Stephen Seehorn continue will be working on The Black Onyx.
But he is busy with school right now, so Luc say: that he can use the rest of the year if it needed.
Stephen just needs to find the time.
What is missing for The Black Onyx: mainly replacing the password system with some savegame chip routines, and also some other minor stuff.
Bruce Tomlin has already done the most of the programming and converting from the old Sega version to ColecoVision.

Max is back !. The guy who work at Milano Metalli in Italy.
He still have a lot of New Sunrise games for sale.
But this time he said he have a plan to sell Parker Brothers games later this year, possibly already this summer.
But as he said: "I need to have some space more before i can open the Parker boxes for ColecoVision".
So he need some U.S. sellers and also a few from Europe to first sell his Sunrise games, and then after the upcoming Parker Brothers.
The games are possibly all new and maybe from the same former importer in Italy.
Max will also start up sale of Starpath Supercharger hardware for Atari 2600.
The Starpath Supercharger will expand a normal Atari 2600 with extra 6K.

Harvey deKleine has now decided to remade one of his old game namely: JETP4K from 2006. also known as JET Block.
It was a fairly simple side-scrolling game, where you have to avoid the coming rocks to stay you alive, and gather diamonds to sustain life.
The game is greatly improved compared to the previously released in 2006.
A newly redesigned jetpack player and variety of rocks, also added a smart bomb feature (credits added when "hitting" the diamonds).
A couple of bugs have been fixed, the gameplay has been improved, a pause feature has been added, collision detection has been fixed, and the graphics have been updated.
Things that need to be included: tweaking the difficulty ramping, adding difficulty levels, adding visual effects for number of lives and number of bombs on hand.
Also improving collision detection so very minor hits won't hurt, fixing up the opening screen, and adding additional sound effects.
Harvey deKline will in addition to download the game also offer the game with his own PCBs.
Harvey will then sell the assembled PCB and a label.
Purchaser shall then himself acquire a cartridge, e.g. an extra Donkey Kong cartridge, pull the label off, replace the PCB, and put on the new label.

An old game has now been digged out from its hiding since the mid 80s.
The game: "The Cat S.O.S. game: Caterpillar scheduled oil sampling game", was given to every Cat dealership in 1983 to support the S.O.S. program.
The game was made by the company Nuvatec. Nuvatec has programmed several games to ColecoVision.
Nuvatec has among other also programmed Cosmic Avenger for Sega to use for ColecoVision.
The Caterpillar game was never sold commercially.
The game consists of a bulldozer that rides around and pushes dirt. Each dirt pile represents a "job".
To keep from exploding you have to send in oil samples to the Cat dealership, then you will be told if the oil is good or bad.
If you fail to do this occasionally your oil will go bad and your bulldozer will explode.
The owner of the possibly last Caterpillar game in the world, has not yet announced whether he will sell it or let it dump.

Luc Miron at Team Pixelboy indicate that there's a nasty little bug in Pitfall II Arcade, which can cause the game to freeze up in a very specific spot within the game.
It's a totally avoidable bug, fortunately.
The programmer tried to fix it, but it was too complicated to fix properly without turning the source code upside down.
It will be included in an addendum to the manual to explain how to avoid it.
The addendum will feature a portion of the game map and a clear indication of where the bug occurs.
From there, it's only a question of remembering this special spot whenever you play.
Luc Miron will have this addendum printed right away.
So after that, will Luc be able to send Pitfall II Arcade and the other games off.
