I misjudged Frostbite as an overcomplicated Q*Bert clone, so I never played it much despite having a copy for quite some time now. It's actually pretty fun - I love collecting the fish, and seeing the igloo assemble is a great visual play-incentive that a lot of 2600 games lack.

I'm still miles away from the 40k Activision patch score, but I'm happy just to break 10k for now haha.

I used to be good at this game; I'll have to see if I've still got any skills...

I used to be really good at this, but I don't have an Atari 2600 any more. I tried playing on my phone and that didn't work too well. I remember when you hit 100k, you get a "magic fish" icon at the top of the screen, which was a cool bonus.

I presume that was one of the Atari games that survived your purge then?  If not you can borrow my copy.  

Almost all of the VCS games I kept were Activision games; they were so far ahead of their peers in that era that it wasn't even funny...

Don't worry, I don't own the N64 game that is up next week, or anything else that's modern, so you're going to destroy me in this contest as I start running out of games I can play...

I'd offer to help with that but Snowboard Kids isn't one I own either.
