- Riki has made it to 150k MobyPoints (9th in the all-time list.)
- Kam1Kaz3NL77 is now at 100k (14th all-time!)
- Harmony made it over 20k, an excellent achievement based on many obscure titles.
- Cavalary is at the 10k milestone - congrats there, too!
PS - Side note - we need some new 'Featured Game' reviews. Add some here, if you have a chance!
Some notable additions include the very rare Cookie's Bustle, an odd Japanese PC mini-game fest, as well as bizarre Nuon skydiving title Freefall 3050 AD and odd unofficial Genesis game Smart Mouse, among many others. Hurray!
Firstly, Patrick Bregger made it over 200,000 MobyPoints, and is currently 3rd all-time - much appreciated! Secondly, Pseudo_Intellectual has been on the site for nearly 15 years & made it over 60k Points in the past few weeks, woot. And thirdly, new contributor Leeona is already over 45k MobyPoints, in less than a year, many of them for Australian cover art we didn't have - SUPER impressive work, y'all.
Your job (should you choose to accept it) is to scour the submission queues for info and verify that the user-submitted data is correct before it goes up on our website. We're also looking for existing approvers to expand their scope to new queues/platforms. Either way, please PM me and I can sort you out!
- GTramp, who has added all kinds of things but has been particularly strong on screenshots (13,000 so far!) has made it over 60,000 MobyPoints.
- mars_rulez, who is invaluable for adding brand new releases for PC and digital console, just made it over 40,000 points. So many thanks to him, too!
Now, the easier way is simply to visit this updated 'Tech Specs' page and see if anything is missing and how data is grouped. That page lists all tech specs that currently exist on MobyGames, regardless of the platforms to which each spec is attached.
Feel free to comment on potential issues in the forum thread attached to this post!
Galaksija (left) was a do-it-yourself (DIY) computer made in ex-Yugoslavia in 1983. It used monochromatic monitor and text-mode graphics (two year later Galaksija Plus introduced hi-res mode with polygon graphics). How to assemble the computer was done in a magazine so everyone's computer looked a bit different. You wanted a joystick to play games? Take a soldering iron and build yourself one. That was the principle for upgrades. Here's a brief showcase of how the games looked on original Galaxy computer.
Amazon Alexa (right) has great many skills. Many of those skills are categorized as games and it was only a matter of time until it found itself on MobyGames. While many skills are entertaining, not all are actual games. Skill groups help determine that a bit, but best way is always to try it out, seeing how they're all free. What does Alexa game "look" like? Well, a word speaks 1000 of pictures ;))
Oh, and we added the Pokitto too! Go us!
Secondly, we took advantage of the editing to add a new stretch MobyGoal - 7,000 iPhone games. Yep, we know they're not such a popular area to add for contributors, but there are a lot of smartphone games played by millions and not yet documented, so we thought we'd ask nicely!
- Rainer S, who does an amazing job of adding cover art for German titles in particular, is now over 100k MobyPoints, one of a select few (less than 15!) to ever do that.
- The incredibly methodical Piltdown Man is now over the 150k points mark - thanks to him for adding a lot of obscure PC shareware games of recent.
Thanks to these two, and please post other user milestones in the comments as you see them!
It's a real-time chat service where various regulars talk about MobyGames contributions, game collecting, and other random fun facts. See you there!
For example, he's adding nicely scanned original covers for rare PC Engine CD games, as well as weird Amstrad CPC games & lots more besides. Look through his full contributions to date here.

Tip Of The DayCruisin' for contribution points, but don't know what to add? Try an Advertising Blurb! Many of the games in the database have full back covers, but no Ad Blurb. A nearly-unlimited supply of free Contribution Points can be yours if you pull up said back covers and enter the text in as an Ad Blurb with Back Cover as the source. You don't even need to own the game! Cool, eh? more tips
7000 iPhone Games (36%)
We need 1111 more iPhone games documented to complete this goal!
This is one of the first games to feature a fluid 3D-first person perspective in dungeons and towns, not with the step-by-step view. Oh and that with a processor speed of 7MHz (that's 0.007 GHz by the way). The world to explore is enormous, there are several islands to explore and also two moons (and some other places) to visit. If you have played other games from Thalion Software you will find some nice references.
Alas, that amount of data has a price. The game was delivered on nine disks, where one disk just contains the background music, and another disk was needed for the save data. Hard drives are rare at this time, so at least you should have a second floppy drive.
