Mark Plays... Champ Games (MS-DOS/PC)

Mark Vergeer's picture

ChampGames / Champrogramming / Champ programming was a game developer from the US founded by John W. Champeau. Robert Cole was in charge of sound design. They produced quite a few wonderful ports of classic arcade games around 1996/1997 running on MS-DOS & Windows95 PCs.

In this video I check out their library of games:
- CHAMP KONG
- CHAMP MSPAC-EM
- CHAMP PAC-EM
- CHAMP GALAXIA
- CHAMP GALAGON
- CHAMP CENTIPED-EM
- CHAMP ASTEROCKS
- CHAMP INVADERS

An older version of the Pacman called Pacmaniac was released in 1993 and it featured a layout/graphics quite similar to the Atari/C64
layout of the Game. I may show that in another video when I find the disk.

It was also possible to use a CHAMP cable that allowed you to plug an old Atari compatible 9-pin digital joystick or equivalent into the
parallel 25-pin printer port (LPT1, LPT2 or LPT3).

Games that were planned but were never released:
- CHAMP Joust
- CHAMP Missile Command 1 & 2
- CHAMP Defender
- CHAMP Basketball
- CHAMP Frog-em
- CHAMP Burger Chef
In 1998 the company went out of business.
