I loved my Atari 800xl when I was a kid, it was the precursor to the Amiga and knocked spots off the C64, if only it had more support in europe it would have been the top system of the 80's.

I've been trying to find new gems in my rom collection to play on the gp32_console but there are so many I'm a bit lost.

Here is my current fave list. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Archon
Bounty Bob Strikes Back
Bruce Lee
Chop Suey
Dan Strikes Back
Drelbs
Dropzone
Kennedy Approach
Mercenary
Miner 2049er
Rescue on Fractalus
Star Raiders
The Eidolon
Zybex

Joust, HERO, Boulder Dash I&II, Carvania, Int. Karate, Blue Max, Draconus, Druid, Laser Hawk, Mirax Force, Moon Patrol, Missle Command, Pengo, Plastron, Transmuter, Schreckenstein, Screaming Wings, Star Raiders II, The Brundles ...

And the best Game in the last years is "Dyna Blaster". But its two player only so its useless for your GP32. But its worth a try on you real hardware!

fantastic lists, as I worked down them, I was thinking I'd add somehow add HERO and Flip & Flop, but the others got there first.

As well the A800 being one of the best 8-bit machines I think the A800 Emulator is of the best emulators on GP32, its a cracking bit of code . .I sooo hope there'll be an A800 emu for the GP2x as well!

I'll print this and load 'em up for the train tmo :)

Pogoman, check it. This was one of the first games I ever played. I dreamed about this game when I was young. It may not be the best game yet I like it.

^ My friend and I would play that game for hours at a clip. It plays a bit like Zaxxon, as fas as its isometric-view, only it's not as frantic.

You pilot a bi-plane equipped with a Machine Gun and some bombs. You go about shooting at enemy bi-planes and dropping bombs on various targets; tanks, bridges, ships, cars, etc.

It's very simple and fun; perfect for hand-held gaming in short bursts :D
