Downloadable trial ROM versions provide a nice demo-before-you-buy option in the emulator of your choice or for direct transfer to a flash device.

GameConsoles.com and programmer Philipp Klaus Krause have teamed up
to release an original, new Colecovision game titled 'Search for the
Stolen Crown Jewels'! As many of you have been following the
development of the game through colecoprogramming@yahoogroups.com,
the game is loosely inspired by the Rock-Ola arcade game Fantasy,
featuring a hot air balloon traveling adventurer, as he crosses the
globe in an attempt to rescue three stolen Crown Jewels.

The multi-level adventure was conceived by Mark Mazure and adapted
by Philipp Klaus Kraus, who not only programmed the code but
also developed and produced unique new cartridge casings for the
games. Mark designed the art for the boxes Philipp created, which
will also contain a basic instruction sheet.

The initial cartridge version of Philipp's 'Schlange CV' is a
Colecovision version of the classic computer game 'Snake,' where
players must successfully navigate each level, while avoiding
multiple dangers and picking up bonuses along the way.

To celebrate the re-launch of GameConsoles.com as a website
dedicated to the independent, homebrew development scene, the
initial release of 'Search for the Stolen Crown Jewels'
and 'Schlange CV' will be available EXCLUSIVELY through the
GameConsoles.com website. Pre-orders will be taken at a special pre-
order price of $29.95 for 'Crown Jewels' & $25.95 for 'Schlange'
beginning Saturday, 9/30/2006. Orders will ship October 15th.
