About Hozer Video and Randy Crihfield
Some quick notes
Games don't come with photocopied docs, printed docs, or any other kind
of docs. If you ask me nice I might email you the .doc file that I
*used* to print out, but not all games have docs and I don't fool with
them. For the most part, I just make games from rom images people send
me and request. If you want a whole bunch of something and you want to
get them nude (no labels) I will do that, for the same price. If you want
a bunch w/o cases, I can do that too and in that case I would discount a
little for you.
I don't make fake protos, I make copies of games for people to have
fun playing. If YOU want to try to pass them off as the real thing
that's on your head, although plenty of people wll blame me anyway. I
guess if they had half a brain they'd figure it out, but that's probably
giving them too much credit. Enough said about that.
How this works
I make carts on a per order basis. That is, I don't usually make up
20 or so Foo Monster carts at a time, for instance. I make them as the
money comes in. While MOST orders go out in about a week's time, if
I get really bogged down with multiple cart orders yours may take
several weeks before you see it arrive in the mail. Bear in mind
that this is not a business, it's a hobby, and I have a life. However
I WILL get your order done and occasionally I do make up a handful
of extras so usually the turnaround is a matter of days not weeks.
I've also been known to toss in a freebie or two when I am REALLY
bogged down and slow in filling an order, but happily this does not
happen too often. I don't mind giving away a free cart now and then
but I hate making people wait. I'm real good with email, too, you can
always ping me and say "how's the order coming?" and I'm pretty quick
The whole meaning of life for Hozer Video is to put fun games in the
hands of collectors who would otherwise have an extremely difficult
time putting a ROM image on a cart.
Let's face it. You can get the Atari 2600 game images from a multitude
of places on the net. While everyone collects every rom they can find,
ther are still people who would rather hold a cart in their hands, and
play it on a genuine Atari 2600 console. They don't want to pay $1K for
some stupid one of a kind proto, they just want a copy to play with at
a reasonable price. Hozer Video is for these people.
What I do
What I do is very simple. I put Atari 2600 rom images on carts.
You download the rom of the game you want and send it to me, and I will
make a nice cart with a new label. Is it valuable? Well, no. But
you can play a game that otherwise you would probably have never seen
any other way than an emulator. Maybe you have a copy of Glib still
shrinkwrapped (you lucky pig!) but still want to play the game? I can
make you a copy in a flash, and you can leave that valuable original
pristine in its package.
