Anyone ever played an Atari game (I forget what system we had, but a fuse burned out in the machine so we threw it out when I was very young) where you played as a bear who caught honey in his inverted hat? The honey would drip from the ceiling I believe.

I was thinking about "Crystal Castles" because of the bear & honey pot but it sounds like a different game altogether. For some reason I'm thinking this game might be for the TI-99/4A. It sure sounds familiar.

Willowmoon, you may be remembering Honey Hunt, which required the MBX expansion unit to work. The play doesn't doesn't sound quite like Honey Hunt though. I may have to fire up my copy of it to look. . .

Yeah "Honey Hunt" was definitely a different game from the one Facattack is mentioning, a pretty fun one if I remember correctly.

Facattack -- was this game for one of the video game consoles (Atari 2600, 5200, 7800) or do you think it was for one of the Atari 8-bit computers?

It was a game console... We also had Flash Gordon for it.

Hmmmm ... then that is probably the Atari 2600 ..... I'll try to remember, it sure does sound familiar ...

willowmoon, look at this link and see if this is it:

Also, does not sound like a console (not a 2600, anyway) if there was a fuse go out. The 400/800's had fuses that would go, though, and this may be it.

Yeah but the only console I remember Flash Gordon being on was for the Atari 2600. And facattack does state it was a console. Maybe different memories are merging, converging .... sounds like something from a Star Trek episode ;)

Man, I'm stumped. I really hope someone figures this one out. I think I remember Stickybear Basketbounce for the Apple II.

Could it have been an XE console, without the keyboard? Like this one:

Well, I assumed it was a fuse. All I know is that the console got fried somehow and ceased to work.

Probably a zero-ohm resistor...
