Video Pinball (Atari 2600)

Video Pinball review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

I grew up on the Atari 2600 and Video Pinball has always been one of my favorites. I started playing video games real early (I was about 3 or 4, if that old), so I don't remember what the first video game I ever played was, but Video Pinball is definitely one of them. Even after I started buying a few Atari 2600 games on my own, I still played Video Pinball just as much as almost all of my new games. Let's just say that I have a lot of memories and nostalgia for this game.

Video Olympics review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Pong fans rejoice! Pong was the first video game that millions of people instantly got hooked on and one of the first games to ever hit the arcades, if not the first. Video Olympics/Pong Sports (same game; some cartridges are named Video Olympics and others are named Pong Sports) for the Atari 2600 has the original Pong and much more!

Towering Inferno (Atari 2600)

Towering Inferno review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When a fire starts, it can turn into a deadly situation in a flash, especially when it's a towering skyscraper that has caught aflame. In a matter of minutes, the whole building can come tumbling down. Unfortunately, the same holds true for human beings. Whether a person is a punk or an admirable person with envious achievements, everything they own, everything they are, can be gone all of a sudden when a fire becomes their unwelcome neighbor. It's up to the heroes, the firemen, to put their saf...

Surround (Atari 2600)

Surround review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When you first turn on the game of Surround and begin playing it, you might wonder how it could possibly be a worthwhile game. All you see is solid, ancient looking blocks that are all the same boring old color. But like the saying goes: Looks can be deceiving. Before you know it, after playing a few rounds of this game that features nothing more than normal, every day squares or blocks that move around on a television screen, you find yourself growing more and more fond of a little game called ...

Sky Diver (Atari 2600)

Sky Diver review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When I was young, there was no real clear line between religion and video games. All I ever did was play video games. The younger years of my life were made up of nothing but the Atari 2600. One of my older brothers is almost seven years older than me, but video games seemed to be just as important to him as they were to me. He was the champion of the time while I was an up-and-coming gamer that wanted nothing more than to beat him at every game we played. One of our favorites was always Sky Div...

Seaquest (Atari 2600)

Seaquest review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Humans are among the greediest of creatures. When a burglar breaks into a home or a robber decides to steal from a bank, they fail to believe that they're going to be caught by the police and thrown into jail. Greed completely takes over their mind and makes them forget about the harsh consequences. There's only one slice of cake left, and you know you should save it for your girlfriend, but do you? Heck no, you might get slapped later on when she finds out who ate it, but you don't care. You're...

Q*Bert (Atari 2600)

Q*Bert review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When I was a kid, just about all I ever bought with my own money was video games. Whether it was with the aid of my almost microscopic allowance, my huge bundles of Christmas money, or just finding a dollar on the side of the street, video games were always what I had in mind.

Pitfall! (Atari 2600)

Pitfall! review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Very few people know and even fewer seem to care that Pitfall! is considered to be the first true 2D platforming adventure and one of the most revolutionary video games of all time; some even say it's the most revolutionary game ever made. Pitfall Harry is on a mission to find all the treasure he can in the eternity of 20 minutes; I guess you could call it a get rich quick scheme of the early 80's. Not only is Harry searching for lost riches, he's searching for it in the wild jungle of all place...

Pac-Man (Atari 2600)

Pac-Man review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

That was the question that most people had to ask after they saw and played this Atari 2600 rendition of the arcade classic for the first time.

Outlaw (Atari 2600)

Outlaw review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Outlaw is one of the many prototype-looking early titles for the Atari 2600. It has graphics that look like something a 5-year-old would draw for an art class, but underneath the troubling looks is a game that can provide a great deal of entertainment.

Night Driver (Atari 2600)

Night Driver review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

The 80's were just beginning to come into focus and video games had been in existence for only a few years, but they were becoming all the more popular with each passing calendar. The video game industry was like a rock rolling from the top of a hill, gaining speed as it tumbles down the slope. Since video games were at such a young age that they hadn't outgrown diapers yet, there weren't many racing or driving simulators at all. For this reason, gamers were likely to play any driving game that ...

Ms. Pac-Man (Atari 2600)

Ms. Pac-Man review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

The Atari 2600's Ms. Pac-Man isn't a perfect clone of the Ms. Pac-Man that everybody knows from the arcades, but it's damn close.

Mouse Trap (Atari 2600)

Mouse Trap review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

A sneaky little mouse and three furry cats are all hungry. All the mouse wants are a few pieces of cheese, but the cats would rather have a living creature for lunch, such as a mouse! Each of the three felines are extremely greedy; they don't want to divide a mouse into thirds; they all want the entire feast for themselves, so they all go their separate ways in the twisting maze.

Moon Patrol (Atari 2600)

Moon Patrol review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

There are some things that I'm automatically drawn to simply by their name and look. When I first read the title of a book called ''The Ultimate History of Video Games'' and saw its cover, it shot straight to the top of my must-get list right away. Growing up, I always wanted to be a meteorologist, until I found out how much physics, calculus, and chemistry that I'd have to take. Anything that had to do with weather, especially tornadoes, was always a major turn on for me.

Missile Command (Atari 2600)

Missile Command review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

In Missile Command, you control a sort of spaceship that resembles a flashing, horizontal line, or cursor. Your job is to control the various missiles and other spaceships by moving your cursor of a spaceship around the screen and using it to plant loads of bombs in the right places in order to kick some major missile and alien butt. Move your flashing line where you anticipate the oncoming enemy being in the next 1-3 seconds, and then press the button to make your station at the bottom-middle o...

Megamania (Atari 2600)

Megamania review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When we think of things that make a video game different from most others, we typically think of something to do with its gameplay. There are always exceptions, however, and Megamania proves that. Space shooters were a dime a dozen back in the Atari 2600's heyday; they were standing on top of the world and still looking up. That was back when the majority of gamers actually enjoyed fun games that had a basic premise, no music, and graphics that were nothing to brag about.

Mario Bros. (Atari 2600)

Mario Bros. review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Unless you know your video game history, you probably thought that Super Mario Bros. for the NES was the first game that featured the unstoppable duo of Mario and Luigi. However, Mario Bros. for the arcade was actually the first title that featured the two Italians. The game was also ported to other systems, such as the Atari 2600, before Nintendo fans ever got to see the two mushroom-eating, Bowser-defeating icons.

Lock 'N Chase (Atari 2600)

Lock 'N Chase review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

There are not many video games in the history of the industry that have had more clones to come after it than Pac-Man has. None of them seemed to have the worldwide success that Sir Chomps-A-Lot, I mean Pac-Man had, but tons of clones tried to steal some of the limelight. Lock 'N Chase was one of those games. It's a clone and a half, but it does have a few noticeable differences, believe it or not.

Kangaroo (Atari 2600)

Kangaroo review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When a child gets taken away from its mother, about 99% of moms would just cry all week and call the police, but not kangaroo mothers! Hell no. The bad ass Mother Kangaroo puts on a pair of boxing gloves and sets out on her short-lived journey to save her baby at the top of the screen.

Kaboom! (Atari 2600)

Kaboom! review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

I haven't seen many video games that have a title that describes the gameplay as well as this one. Kaboom! (it actually has an exclamation point in its title) features a crook who calls himself the ''Mad Bomber.'' He's dressed in pinstripes, a bandit's mask, and he has a sad frown stuck on his face. He has a fetish for dropping bomb after bomb after bomb from the top of the screen to the bottom, in an attempt to make them fall down and go KABOOM!
