Spectracube Invasion - Information Needed

Post by BrooklyNY »

Hi,

I specially registered to ask you, the experts in this forum about Spectracube Invasion as I happen to have the game. After quite a long search in the net I was unable to find information about the rarity of the cartridge and approximate current price. There are indications in a few web pages that it's a rare one, is that correct and if so how rare it is? The only place I found some sort of information of it's price was in a wishlist in different forum. The person there mentions that he is prepared to pay 75USD for the game, but the post is from 2005 and I guess that this may have changed during the years. Could you please advise me of a round figure?

Thank you for your help in advance!

Regards

That looks like an Atari 2600 8-bit game, this forum is really dedicated to the later Atari 16/32 bit machines.

You could try over at https://atariage.com/forums/ , they have a specific Atari 2600 forum.

There is some info on atariboxed.com. They don't have a picture of the cart.

That's interesting. According to AtariMania, it has a "Holy Grail" icon meaning "3 or less known to exist".

Thank you for your answers!

I've been to the pages suggested above by acsi, but I didn't know what the little golden cup in the rarity section meant. Thanks to LongLifeA1200 now I know what it means. Thus is a good sign.

There is one more page indicating that it's a quite rare game:
http://www.atariboxed.com/index.php?go= ... number=443

I just registered in the forum suggested by Zippy and hope to get a bit more info there.

Still, if someone have some sort of knowledge about this game here, I will be happy to find out more.
I will update the topic if I have better answer over the other forum for the ones who got interested and to have a bit more data about the game online.

Thank you very much!

*Moderator note*

Moved to 8Bit corner as this is clearly Atari 2600 stuff and not Atari ST.

This game was also know as "Immies & Aggies"
I don't think it's in any 'Top 100' or any 'Top 200' 'Atari 2600 VCS Games Of All Time' lists.
It's a long shot but there are a few Atari magazines from 1983 on Archive.Org

Does the OP get a notification when this happens? OP might think their thread got deleted.

There's usually a check box when a post is moved which asks if the moderator wants to let the OP know that their post has been moved.
