PostSubject: Found Atari 2600!   Mon 06 Oct 2008, 1:00 pm

Ok, so I was helping my old man clean up some junk in my grandfather's old garage, when I found a half-opened box. Peering inside, I found something I thought I would never lay eyes on.

It was my father's old Atari 2600 in near flawless shape (With Combat in the cartrige slot to boot)!

But now that I have one of the oldest home game cartrige systems out there, and being the old-school game collector I am, I obviously intend on increasing my 2600 library. Currently, I have my eyes open for China Syndrome and Warlords to add to my collection, but if you have any recommendations concerning 2600 games, I am all ears.

In other words, If you have any fav Atari games, please respond! Thanks!

I don't really think too much about the Atari 2600 games, but I really liked Defender! Wink

Here's an artiicle on the cheapest Atari 2600 games worth your time.

ZeLoz, I would personally like to shake your hand. My family also has an Atari 2600, in working order with the RF adapter to go with it!

My game list of awesome:
Atlantis
Yars' Revenge (I mastered Easy on game mode 6 ^_^ broke 1 mil pts with 8-9 lives left)
Pitfall (survived the 20-min gauntlet!)
Seaquest (my bro was god in this game. Got as far as the 4th tier of waves (maybe 5th...?))
Tank Hunter (one of my dad's favorites. Best we ever decked were 7 dozen tanks. After 7 dozen it was hell)
Target Fun (Ships vs Subs? Anyone?)
Enduro
Defender
Chopper Command

Of course, we had Space Invaders, Asteroids, and Pac Man...

The only game we could never figure out:
Space Shuttle (My dad even found the manual online and we STILL can't figure it out!)

But I don't really remember... maybe it was only 6... No

hey, anyone besides me, played ET??? the worst game ever? razz

There is always something in a grandfathers hidden place where there's a Old system. I find that cool and yet funny at the same time.

Yeah, I played that *hit on PC (emulation's miracle) lol!

Basically you must guide E. T. for many ¿levels...? to find the pieces of a ¿telephone...? and calls to his planet (no comments...)

The trouble is... if you fall into a hole, you lose, it's pretty difficult to escape from that holes, this is the reason for the game was a great mistake for Atari in that time.

Nope, according ti the rumors, many copies of the game are buried in the Nuevo Mexico's dessert, not in Mexico (be sure if the copies are in Mexico, I'll have all of them) XD

Anyway, a hack of this game exists and fix the hole problems, now you escape easilly from that *ucking holes of the hell. XD

I see...
I always thought I had to enter the holes to rescue something or to find something.... scratch
and I always died... ... ... ... well... not me, ET did... Oops

maybe I should give it a try now... besides, my Atari controllers always made get tired too soon... fear
