I came across a post on google groups that mentioned a crack of Tumble Bugs, and checking asimov under images/games/action/
there it is:

FWIW, I found an old crack of Tumble Bugs I had done way back when, and have uploaded it to Asimov for preservation. Why? Well, it's 'Tumble Bugs', not 'Dung Beetles', it's a small file version, the original title screen is intact and untouched, and there's no crack screen on it. IIRC, the 'Dung Beetles' version either lacks the title screen, or has been modified (plus the name is different). It's nice game from Bob Bishop.

Anyway, as I continue to rummage through stuff, I thought it might be of interest. The title screen is fun at least."

Here's one of my favorite games of all time: Stampede. I didn't know there was another version of it until I was browsing the softlists. It's surprising that this game didn't get more travel to other systems.


a2600:

./mame64 a2600 -cart stampede

intellivision:
(virtually identical but only has 4 cattle tracks instead of 6 on the a2600)
./mame64 intv -cart stampede

And an ersatz Atari 800 version from Analog Computing #13 (page 76) that looks remarkably familiar.

(for some reason I can only lasso, I can't move up and down)

Not to gripe without adding anything, but just a small request: When taking screenshots, please use -snapsize 640x480 or -snapsize 480x640 depending on the expected orientation and aspect of the screen. A lot of the screenshots I'm seeing are unrealistically stretched due to the default behavior of taking snapshots which assume 1:1 square pixels.
