3D Ghost Attack

They say the mansion is haunted. But nobody really knows for sure. And you've just got to find out. Armed with your photobeam, you begin your search. Suddenly, there's a flash of light. Then another. And another. They're all around you, coming from walls, doors, windows, everywhere. You reach for your trusty photobeam. Now somebody knows for sure...

This was originally planned as a pack-in cassette game for Amiga's Power Module peripheral, and would have been the first-ever 3-D game for the Atari VCS/2600… and it still is! It was later planned to be 1 of 3 "3-D" games on Power-Play Arcade cart #1. It was programmed by Mike Glass, and Jerry Lawson implemented the use of 3-D. 3 different prototypes exist – each being a different level of the game. Unfortunately, none of the prototypes are 100% complete, but 2 are playable. Everything is included on this cartridge for the sake of completeness. The cart utilizes the same menu program that was originally created for the Power-Play cart, and modified to run the 3 Ghost Attack prototypes separately. As an added bonus, each game includes a set of 3-D glasses!

Only 100 boxed & numbered copies were produced. This is a 16K cartridge.

3D Genesis

PEACE THROUGH SUPERIOR FIREPOWER!

In the far future, the planet is overrun with enormous, super insects, who fiercely battle each other for survival. You've chosen a side to fight for, and the enemy has been funneled into a deep crevice, but now you're outnumbered. You put their numbers to the test.

They say the meek shall inherit the Earth, but how long can you defend it?

This is a Tempest clone, but with some unique differences. It was originally planned to be 1 of 3 "3-D" games on Power-Play Arcade cart #1. A screenshot was shown in a catalog for Amiga's Power System, but no description was included. It was programmed by Dan McElroy and Jerry Lawson implemented the use of 3-D. The game appears to be complete. As an added bonus, each game includes a set of 3-D glasses!

Only 100 boxed & numbered copies were produced. This is an 8K cartridge.

3D Havoc

Your stellar cruiser begins to shudder as the hyperwarp drive suddenly cuts out. Slowing down, you realize you've entered an asteroid field. A BIG asteroid field. You bolt for the high-density laser-pulse inverter. Your only chance is to blast your way out. And you'd better start now...

This was originally planned to be a cassette game for Amiga's Power Module peripheral. It was later planned to be 1 of 3 "3-D“ games on Power-Play Arcade cart #1. Jerry Lawson implemented the use of 3-D. The game is close to being complete, but after reaching the end, it cycles back to the 2nd screen where it runs forever. As an added bonus, each game includes a set of 3-D glasses!

Only 100 boxed & numbered copies were produced. This is an 8K cartridge.

  Acid Trip

You have just taken a hit of some experimental acid found in a recently uncovered US research lab from the 1960's. Suddenly you find yourself transported from Earth to the micro-universe on the Atari 2600 Plane of Existence. You find that your body has changed from that of a human to an undead ghost. You have the ability to shoot power pellets out of your head at the various villains who wish to rid you of your unlife. Adventure Dragons chomp at you with their decapitated duck-like heads. Combat tanks approach you as you wonder what this all means. Why does E.T. want to destroy you? And why do the other undead ghosts attempt to eat you? This micro-universe is quite strange and exciting. Perhaps there is a meaning to this after all.

 Alfred Challenge

Run, jump and climb to reach the keys opening doors to the next level. Take care of the Tazniak and the Bukoï which have only one idea: Kill you!

Alfred had been anticipating this day for most of his life and trained intensely for it during the past year. Nobody knew why a passage appeared at the base of Mount Zepithar every eleven years, but everyone did know that once you entered the passage, you were caught in a universe of strange and hostile creatures seemingly from another world. Alone, Alfred would face the ultimate challenge, and should he succeed in his quest, he would become the next village chief. Can you help Alfred realize his goal and safely guide him through the maze of ladders, ropes, platforms and monsters?

Alfred Challenge is Ebivision's first game, written by Eric Bacher.
Alfred Challenge features a professionaly printed label and manual.

It was a simple enough mission, return the ceremonial pants that the Prince of the Agrob system had left behind on his latest diplomatic mission to your home world. The journey to planet G45 was a pretty boring affair. Or so you thought! Not far into your mission, a squadron of ships appears on your radar, but it's not a welcoming committee! After the surprise of shots echoing against your hull, you scramble to get the ship into combat mode, knowing that your simple delivery mission has now turned into a fight for your life!

To stop this transformation, you must inoculate each of them with a special antidote that you gather throughout the swamp. You don't have a lot of time! Not to mention, the alligators are chasing you as you attempt to gather vials of the antidote! The longer you wait, the more antidote you need to reverse the effects of the Alligator People!

This prototype appears to have been completed and unlike some prototypes that never saw the light of day, this one is quite enjoyable to play!

 Amiga Boing 2600! 2.0

Fans of Amiga computers will immediately recognize the nature of the Amiga Boing Demo 2.0. To help demonstrate the power of the Amiga, the Amiga Boing Ball demo was created. The demo consists of a checkered red and white ball bouncing within the confines of the screen, changing direction when hitting the walls, all the while spinning. With this demo running in the background (as the Amiga could multitask, which was a fairly unique feature at the time in personal computers), it as a powerful statement of the Amiga's capabilities. This demo ultimately became synonymous with the Amiga, and even today it used as part of the official Amiga identity.

For a period of time the Amiga Boing Demo was ported to just about every platform imaginable to demonstrate that, "Hey, we can do this, too!" And of course, the Atari 2600 was no exception!

Rob Kudla originally created a simple version of the Amiga Boing Demo for the Atari 2600 as a tech demo and more recently, David Galloway, updated Rob's demo to make it truer to the original Amiga demo. His changes include:

- New graphics, and a larger full 48 pixels wide & 90 pixels tall ball
- The world the ball bounces in now has gravity
- The spin of the ball switches when it bounces against a side wall
- User control of horizontal speed and gravity (with joystick)
- Additional changes in audio pitch, scanlines, colors and more
- More ball and background variations

Includes cartridge and manual.

AStar

AStar is a new puzzle game for the Atari 2600 by Aaron Curtis. AStar is inspired by an old calculator game called DStar. The basic idea is to collect all the items, such as cherries on the first level. It is not as easy as it may seem at first! You can only move in a straight line until you hit something. You can then change your direction and again move forward until you hit a wall. You also have control of a small block to that you can use to help you navigate the level.

The number of moves you've made is shown at the bottom of the screen. Each level has a minimum number of moves required to complete it, and if you go over this the display will change color. Completing every level in the minimum number of moves (no easy task!) wins the game!

C
ompatible with Richard Hutchinson's AtariVox.

Includes cartridge and full-color manual.

 A-VCS-tec Challenge

1475. Tenochtitlán is ruled by the Aztec sovereign Axayacatl, son of Motecuhzoma. Even as he was being defeated by the Tarascans, Axayacatl was expanding his realm by conquering the Mixtecs and Zapotecs.

You, being a warrior of the Zapotecs, managed to escape the battlefield together with two of your brothers, but unfortunately your party was trapped afterwards. Axayacatl offers you the only chance to survive by reaching the coast and leaving the country by boat. He challenges you with spear throwing warriors along your path and stone rolling priests on the pyramids. Reaching the pyramids safe inside allows your team to relax for a short time and prepare for the next trail.

A-VCS-tec Challenge is a conversion by Simon Quernhorst of the popular Aztec Challenge on the Commodore 64. The Atari 2600 version of the game includes the original game's arcade-like first level, called "The Gauntlet", as well as a second level where you must race up the stairs to the top of the pyramid while avoiding large stones being thrown down from the top!

Atom Smasher

A BATTLE TO THE LAST ATOM!

The Atomic Arena is where all sorts of nasty, burly life-forms
come to contest each other in the galaxy's deadliest game!
Armed with a regulation Atom Smasher Blaster, you must
blast unstable atomic particles past your opponent and out of
the arena, but if one hits you, it degrades your very atomic
structure, and the results aren't pretty. But remember,
someone else has the same goal…

This is a head-to-head contest against the computer or another player, and appears to be complete. There's an option for left or right-handed players, and even one to have the computer play itself. The TV Type switch is used to pause a game. This was to be the 1st game under the Video Soft label. but it never saw a release… until now!

Only 100 boxed & numbered copies were produced. This is an 8K cartridge.

 Backfire

The year is 2947. Earth is being invaded by the evil K’caj clan from the Yenrut galaxy. You are Galactic Commander Frank Drexor. The United States Space Guard has commissioned you with the task of defending the most important sector of the galaxy from the invaders. K’caj technology is much more advanced than the technology of Earth. Some of the ships have tractor beams. Others are equipped with subspace energy disruptors. These disruptors create energy barriers that will actually cause the shots from your cannons to reflect back at you! If your mission is a failure, the K’caj will gain control of this vital sector of space, allowing them to maneuver their troops and equipment much more efficiently and gain a larger foothold in the battle for the planet. This would certainly spell disaster for the citizens of Earth. Their fate is in your hands!

Backfire is a homebrew game for the Atari 2600 written by Chad Lare. In Backfire you have two guns, one on the top of the screen and one on the bottom. To control the gun on the top of the screen, press up, to switch to the other gun, press down. Once you are controlling a gun, you can move horizontally and shoot. If you have a clear shot all the way across the screen, you can accidentally blow up your own gun. Also if you shoot one of the barriers, your shot is reflected back at you and you have to get out of the way (hence the name Backfire).

Includes cartridge and 12-page manual.

 Bee-Ball

In the animal kingdom, bees are widely known as efficient workers. But there's an interesting fact that we as humans don't know--bees enjoy having fun! Every year bees from many places gather in one spot to play in a competitive tournament of Bee-Ball! This unique insect game is a mix of tennis and volleyball where bees hit a honey ball over a net using a racquet. A bee judge watches over the match and serves new balls as needed. If the ball touches the floor or flies out of bounds, a point is scored. Avoid fouling the ball out, use your dexterity to block your opponent's shots, slam the ball to score, learn new tactics to outwit your opponent, and you could be the next Bee-Ball champion!

In the competitive sport of Bee-Ball, you must score 10 points against your opponent to win a match. You can swing at the ball to send it flying over to the net or block when your opponent is trying to get the ball past you. If the ball is about to fly over your head, you can head butt the ball in an attempt to prevent a point from being scored against you! Points are scored if the ball touches the floor or the ball flies out of bounds, but in order to score you must first successfully serve.

Bee-Ball supports single and two player play modes. In single-player mode, you compete against a challenging AI computer opponent. In two-player mode you can compete head-to-head against a friend!

Includes cartridge and four-page, full-color manual.

 BLiP Football

Did you grow up playing those handheld electronic football games? Initially released in 1977 (the same year as the Atari VCS), these portable football games became wildly popular, eventually spawning many variants. Thanks to 2600 programmers David Galloway and Bob Montgomery, you can now enjoy this classic handheld football game on the 2600 in the form of BLiP Football. Faithfully mimicked in appearance, audio and gameplay, BLiP Football recreates the experience of playing the original electronic football.

In BLiP Football you control a running back and must get by the defenders trying to stop your progress! You can see nine yards of the playing field at any time--when you go beyond one edge of the field, your player wraps around to the opposite edge, showing another nine yard segment of the field. The game is comprised of four 15-second quarters. On the fourth down you can optionally kick the ball instead of running it.

In addition to the default "classic mode" display (which shows red players against a black field), you can switch to an enhanced, more colorful display by pressing the SELECT switch during gameplay. BLiP Football is a two-player game, with the game controller swapped back and forth between possessions.

Includes cartridge and full color manual.

  Bomb On Pixel City

Bomb on Pixel City was created by Alain le Guirec in 2012 sort of on a dare. He saw someone else had created an iOS game of the same name which paid homage to Atari pixel based graphics. When he claimed he could write an actual Atari game, they said "show me" and the rest is history! BOPC comes with a small game manual that describes the game and shows a few screen shots. Very cute, but watch out for those crazy birds!

Includes cartridge and mini color manual.

 Cat Trax

It's an age-old battle of cats versus dogs. Take control of one brave cat and race through the maze, but beware--you're not alone! Dogs are lurking to find your cat and turn him into lunch! Race to the potion and transform into the Dog Catcher to impound those puppies...but watch out, they'll be back! It's a mad scramble in which you're out-numbered three to one. Can you out-run--and out-last--your canine opposition? Make CAT TRAX and find out!

Cat Trax is a game originally written for the Emerson Arcadia 2001 by UA Ltd., and apparently slated to be released on the Atari 2600. While it was never commercially released by UA Ltd., it did appear on a European multi-cart under the name Cat N Mouse. It's unknown why this game (and the other UA prototypes) were never released commercially.

Cat Trax includes a professionally printed box, manual and label.

Chase It!

Chase It! is a simple but fun and addicting game. Red squares appear upon the screen, and it is your job to collide with them before your opponent. Some variations of the game have barriers that complicate the race! This 16k game is complete with twenty game variations and a demo mode. The first nine variations are two-player games, and games ten through fifteen are single player challenges. Variations sixteen through twenty are "teddy bear" levels featuring a slower moving handicapped opponent to give younger players an advantage.

This game is graphically representative of early Atari titles, but PLAYS LIKE A DREAM. We have priced this game accordingly as a budget title release. The game is not technically groundbreaking, nor is it fancy, but it is JUST PLAIN FUN!

Only thirty copies manufactured.

 Climber 5

Climber 5 is a port by Dennis Debro of an Atari 8-bit computer game that originally appeared in COMPUTE! Magazine back in 1987. In Climber 5 you play the role of a baseball player. The baseball has been hit to the upper rafters of a building under construction. Your job is to climb the ladders and retrieve the ball. Of course, there are obstacles along the way that you need to avoid or you lose a life and must start over at the bottom right corner. Once you successfully retrieve the ball, the level changes and becomes more difficult.

Climber 5 features three game modes, Original, Normal and Advanced. In the Original game mode, play closely mimics the original Atari 8-bit version. In Normal mode, the ladder positions and girder movements are random. You also have a timer that counts down and you must reach the baseball before time runs out. The Advanced option is similar to Normal, but adds falling obstacles. Some obstacles are harmful, whereas the player is rewarded for retrieving others. How far can you get?

 Colony 7

This is Colony 7. Jarvian hostiles sighted inbound. Non combatant personnel are retreating to shuttle bay. We are preparing to defend position. City-wide shield is active. Gun emplacements are standing by. Special Weapon is primed. We will not retreat. We will survive.

Your mission is to defend Colony 7 from the evil Jarvians. Wave after wave of enemy fighters strafe the Colony's defensive shield, attempting to break through. You're in command of the Colony's defensive guns, unleashing a converging stream of laser fire at the attacking hordes. You must wipe out the invading craft before either the cannons or the entire Colony are destroyed.

Use your joystick to steer the targeting crosshairs around the screen. The defensive cannons will automatically fire salvo after salvo towards the current crosshair position. Your goal is to completely annihilate each attacking squadron, since even a single attacker breaking through can destroy your colony. If the situation seems desperate, hit the fire button to activate the Mega Blaster, your special weapon that, in one blast, will empty the sky. Use it sparingly. Each shot drains an entire Fuel Cell, of which the Colony has only three. If you succeed in destroying a squadron, it will soon be replaced a new, even more dangerous one.

Four different types of enemies will attempt to destroy your colony! The Fighter is the most common element of the Javian fleet, and several of them will attack simultaneously, first blasting away the Colony's defensive shield and ultimately destroying the colony itself. They will also destroy your cannons if you are not careful. When The Advisor appears, it will guide the fighters faster to their targets, so destroy it quickly! The Bomber will launch a guided payload directly at one of your cannons, so you must be alert for its presence and if it succeeds in launching its bomb, destroy it before it reaches its target. And when The Scout enters your field of view it will call in replacement ships, so be sure to give it your utmost priority!

Can you save Colony 7 from destruction?

Colony 7 was created by Manuel Rotschkar and is modeled after the 1981 arcade game of the same name.

Includes cartridge and eight-page, full-color manual.

 Dark Mage

If you've ever played a classic text adventure, a genre made famous by Infocom in the early 80s, then Dark Mage will be an unexpected pleasure for you. Greg Troutman managed to squeeze a text adventure into an 8K Atari 2600 cart, and although it's much simpler in execution than Infocom's offerings, it's an enjoyable game nonetheless.

In Dark Mage, you play the role of a jester banished from your kingdom and your goal is to find and return the king's black rose. As in most text adventures you explore the game world by moving through the four compass directions, find and use items and talk with characters you encounter along the way. This is all accomplished with relative ease through the use of the joystick controller, there's no typing here!

  Depth Charge

THE WOLF IS LOOSE!

As a U-boat Commander, your orders are simple: Sail the cold Atlantic waters and engage in unrestricted warfare with Allied supply lines, firing torpedoes at anything that moves. But now you're separated from the wolf pack and running silent, surrounded by an enemy convoy carrying plenty of depth charges. Nobody gets medals for sneaking away...

This was originally planned as a pack-in cassette game for Amiga's Power Module peripheral. The game was billed as the 1st "machine-interactive video game“ offering head-to-head play, with one player the submarine commander and the other the destroyer captain. Each player would have had their own screen display and set of commands. The Power Module was dropped in favor of the Power-Play carts, and the game's development only went as far as this version.

The half that exists is the submarine commander part, and is similar to Sea Wolf. The missing half would have been similar to Atari's Depth Charge or Sega's Sub-Scan.

Only 100 boxed & numbered copies were produced. This is an 4K cartridge.

 Encaved

Darkness. Your head aches. Where are you? What happened to you? Then you remember the steady beep of a technical device. You start groping for the source of the tone and find a PDA laying near your legs. You grab it and watch its display.

You stare at the screen and can't tell what the numbers stand for. You stand up and move a step to the right and come to know that the small dot on the screen represents your position. You continue walking, but a wall abruptly stops your movement. You are in a giant maze and the PDA screen shows the map of this big dark surrounding!

While examining the electronic device in your hands you find a button and a small stick. Your curiosity and raising panic results in pushing the button instantly. You are still standing in complete darkness, but the screen shows something like a spotlight. It seems to be produced by a radar spot scanning the caves. Moving the small stick while the button is pressed moves the spotlight around the maze on screen. You spot ways and walls on screen and decide to follow the lanes and hope to find an exit somewhere... unfortunately you come to know that the numbers in the top right corner of the screen are counting down and you feel that it can't be any good if this timer reaches zero.

Encaved is Simon Quernhorst's fourth Atari 2600 homebrew game! The game starts with the screen showing a black maze within border lines. Your position is represented by the small cursor in the left down corner. Moving the joystick starts the countdown timer and you player moves through the maze. You can't move further when you run into walls. Pressing the fire button lightens the spotlight on your screen. You can move the spotlight around with your joystick while you keep the fire button pressed. A box is hidden somewhere in each maze. Locate it with your spotlight and collect it with your player to gain more time. As soon as you found an exit and moved through it with your player, you receive the remaining time as points. If you know the maze very well already and manage to navigate through it without switching the spotlight on, you score double points. After having escaped a maze a door closes behind you and you come to know that the next maze is already awaiting your exploration...

Includes cartridge and full-color manual.

  Escape It!

Escape It! is based on the European VideoPac (Odyssey2) game "Labyrinth." It is a two-player race to the exit game through a maze that is constantly changing while you navigate through the maze.

Escape It! is the FIRST VCS HOMEBREW GAME TO USE THE BANK-SWITCHING TECHNIQUE AND THE SARA "SUPER CHIP."
Since special parts (which are difficult to locate and limited) are required to manufacture this game, the price is a bit higher than our other homebrew games.

Only THIRTY cartridges were manufactured.

In the first level you begin in a hot oven where you must escape before being cooked alive!

Now that you're on the roof you must build a bridge to a nearby tree while fighting off cats and birds that want you for a tasty treat! Once in the tree, you need to evade all the dangerous creatures in the forest (will you ever get a break?) And if you do escape the forest, you enter a cave where you must fight off your most fearsome enemy yet!

Once you defeat the boss, to your dismay you are captured again and put back in the oven too cook some more, and this time the heat has been turned up! Will you ever escape? Can you battle through 19 levels to have your chance to out-fox the final boss and win your freedom?

PLEASE NOTE: This game is PAL ONLY,

You control your kite with lines attached to handles in both of your hands.
Pulling each line makes the kite turn into this direction. Try to collect as many dots as possible and avoid any collision with lightning, the bird and of course the ground. Your kite can take three hits of the lightning or the bird before it crashes. The color of the kite gets darker with every hit.

Programmed by Simon Quernhorst.

 Lady Bug

It’s dinnertime and Lady Bug is ready to eat! Take a stroll through the garden and nibble on the rows and rows of pretty flowers. Be careful though – there are many dangerous insects that just love to eat ladybugs – and they’re fast too! Block their way by swinging the gates closed, and stay away from the deadly poison. Oh – and don’t forget to collect the bonus prizes to get the help of other ladybugs and a special invite to the Veggie Bounty Harvest! GOOD LUCK!

While many prototypes of unreleased games have surfaced over the years, there are a few notorious titles that have not. This includes Lady Bug, a title that appeared in arcades and was even advertised in Coleco's Atari 2600 Catalog, but never saw the light of day. It's not even known if work was ever begun on the Atari 2600 port. Well, Atari 2600 fans no longer have to wait for a version of Lady Bug, as Atari enthusiast John W. Champeau has developed a remarkable 2600 version!

The object of Lady Bug is to clear the maze of all the dots while avoiding up to four insects. Once all four insects have entered the maze, a bonus vegetable appears in the middle. Eating this veggie not only earns big points, but also freezes the insects for a few seconds. Also appearing in the maze are hearts that increase the bonus multiplier and letters that can be used to spell EXTRA for a bonus ladybug or SPECIAL to earn a round in the bounty harvest maze full of vegetables to eat! If the insects start to gain on the ladybug, she can use the revolving doors to block their attack as she tries to clear each maze. When all flowers and items have been collected, you advance to the next level where the insects are even faster. The game ends when the last ladybug has been eaten.

If you've ever played Lady Bug in the arcade or on the ColecoVision, you'll be amazed at how faithful the 2600 version is to the original!

Includes cartridge and 12-page, full-color manual.

A simultaneous two-player mode is also available.

 Melbourne Tatty

So you’ve decided to seek your fortune as an adventurer? Explore the mazes of Melbourne Tatty for elusive and valuable treasures. Just be careful, as this is no average maze--the walls shift and move with a life of their own to confuse and disorient you. And beware of the hungry wolf that prowls the maze, looking for a tasty morsel just like you...

Melbourne Tatty features 20 levels where your goal sounds pretty straightforward: Collect as much treasure as you can! But what fun is collecting treasure if there's no danger? This is no ordinary dungeon! Every few seconds the walls move, potentially trapping you until they move again! Now, this might not normally cause you too much consternation, except that you are not alone in this maze! A dangerous wolf is pursuing you relentlessly, guarding the treasure and trying to thwart your attempts at taking it! And while the walls will block you, they won't stop the wolf!

You do have one tool at your disposal (well, besides your wits!)--at the beginning of each maze you'll receive three decoys that you can place one at a time in the maze. After placing a decoy, the wolf will ignore you until he reaches the decoy only to discover your deception! You must collect ten treasures in each maze before moving on to the next. Can you survive all 20 levels or will you become a tasty treat for the wolf?

Includes cartridge and beautifully illustrated twelve page, full-color manual, art card, and two stand-up cutouts!

Each player has their own color.
You have to connect tiles of your color vertically or horizontally.
You can move every tile of every color, this means that you could connect a row of tiles of your opponent's color if you don't move carefully enough.
To prevent deadlock situations you can't undo the last move.
If you complete a row of your stones your opponent will lose energy.
If one player runs out of energy the battle is over.

 Phantom II w/ Pirate

Phantom II / Pirate is a homebrew cartridge featuring two games written by David Weavil. Phantom II is based on an old Bally Midway arcade game of the same name, where your goal is to patrol the unfriendly skies and shoot down enemy bombers! In Pirate, you must explore a dangerous island and find the treasure of evil pirate Chuck DeLuc! The cartridge features a menu that lets you select which game to play upon powering up your system.

Fighter Pilots Needed!

Fight your way through day and night zones and shoot down the enemy bomber! Use the joystick to move your fighter and the fire button to fire missiles. You only get one life, so avoid colliding with the enemy jets (you are safe at the lowest level of the screen)! In the night zone the enemy jets are only visible when the radar wave passes over them.

You start with approximately 60 seconds in the guided missile version and 90 seconds in the regular missile version. If you can reach and shoot down the bomber (which requires three hits), you'll be awarded with additional time (represented by a bar on the left of the screen). The enemy jets get more evasive and you receive less time to accomplish your goals with each successive round.

Arrrrr Matey! X Marks the Spot!

Can you find the treasure of the evil pirate "Up" Chuck LeDuc? Beware! His bony corpse wanders the island looking to protect it! Also watch out for snakes and the voodoo priestess!

Use the joystick to move around the island and use your fire button to fight/pick up items or use an item/enter or exit the hut. The window color represents what you are presently carrying (gray - nothing, blue - shovel, yellow - sword, green - shovel & sword). The color of the display in the window shows your health. You start with three hit points (3 - green, 2 - yellow, 1 - red). Snakes have 1 hit point each. The other enemies' hit points are randomly generated. There is a flower growing on the island that will restore your health, but it only works when it is fresh. Only use it when you actually need it!

The treasure is marked by an X and you must have the shovel in your possession to dig it up. Can you find the treasure before LeDuc finds you?

 Poker Squares

With a blight of card games for the Atari 2600, enthusiast Brian Watson brings us a new card game, Poker Squares! In Poker Squares your goal is to place 25 playing cards (from a deck of 52), one at a time, in a 5x5 grid. Your goal is to make the best ten (or twelve) poker hands, five horizontally, five vertically, and optionally the two diagonals, scoring as many points as possible. Complete rules can be found at Solitaire Central (the English scoring system is used).

Poker Squares includes two options to add variety to the game. The first options allows you to disable scoring on the diagonals, making higher scores a bit more difficult. The second option will make the computer deal the first five cards to the corners and center of the grid. This makes for a much more difficult game. Author Brian Watson routinely scores 35-45 points, but there are some players who have gotten over 100 points. Can you be in the same league as them?

It's the year 3006, and the evil “Rainbow Invaders” from the planet “Pacco”, are headed to Earth! They look like the ridiculous aliens depicted in 1980’s arcade games, but are extremely dangerous and their goal is to exterminate all humans! You command a fleet of spaceships and you must defeat all of the Invaders to save Earth! Good luck!

Rainbow Invaders is a new Space Invaders style game for the Atari 2600 from Italian developer Silvio Mogno. While many games of this nature have been released for the 2600 (to say nothing of the countless Space Invaders hacks), Silvio's game adds a breath of fresh air to the genre. Yes, you are shooting at descending waves of alien invaders, attempting to finish them off before they reach the ground. However, the aliens also periodically drop one of 16 random Special Shots, some of which will help and some of which will hinder your efforts if you catch them. Your ship also features a shield that will make you invulnerable for a few seconds, at the expense of not being able to fire again right away.

 Raster Fahndung

Raster Fahndung is a puzzle game where you must locate patterns of 6 by 6 squares inside a playfield of 32 by 20 squares. Sounds simple enough in theory, but with the timer ticking down in the background you don't have the luxury of carefully scrutinizing the playfield to locate the patterns! And when you sneak a peek at the pattern (by pressing the fire button on your joystick) the timer counts down even more quickly!

The game starts with the creation of a random playfield consisting of 32 by 20 squares. Your cursor is located in the middle of the board. Push and hold the fire button to display the 6 by 6 pattern you must match on the playfield. You can use the joystick to move your cursor in all directions. Your cursor points to the top left corner of the 6 by 6 search pattern. Press the fire button when you believe you have found the correct position. If you are right, you'll receive points. If you are wrong, the required pattern is displayed again.

In a simultaneous two player game, both players must locate the same pattern, but each player can view the required pattern individually. The player who finds the correct position first receives one point. The two player game ends when the countdown timer reaches 0 or when one player manages to reach 9 points.

The left difficulty switch allows you to choose the game timing mode. "Easy / A" selects the fixed time limit per level, starting at 90 and decreasing by 5 per level until the minimum of 20 seconds is reached. All following levels offer 20 seconds. The timer on the "Hard / B" setting starts at 90 seconds and you have to find as many patterns as possible within this period.

How many patterns can you find before the timer expires?

Includes cartridge and four-page, full-color manual.

 Rubik's Cube

Rubik's Cube 3D is a completely different version of the Rubik's Cube game that Atari eventually released. The version Atari released is a pretty simple 2D affair, but this prototype is an astonishing 3D version of the game. This prototype was found in 2002 by David Winter and came as a surprise as its existence was not previously known. This version of the game includes a solve option and will also allow you to change the colors of individual tiles. We can only speculate as to why this version of the game was passed over in favor of the 2D version eventually released.

Sea Battle was finished at M Network in the 1980’s, but never released. In 2000, Intellivision Productions released this game complete with a simple box and manual.

 Seawolf

Seawolf, by Atari 2600 programmer Manuel Rotschkaris, influenced and inspired by the Midway Sea Wolf and Sea Wolf II arcade games as well as the Astrocade and 8-bit home versions, but is not a direct port. Seawolf also borrows elements from Broderbund's Seafox.

In Seawolf you command a submarine lurking below the surface of the ocean, where you need to attack enemy convoys while avoiding depth charges and other dangers. But use your resources wisely, as you don't want to be a sitting duck when you run out of torpedoes, or worse, fuel! And watch out for the Red Cross ships, as they have a surprise for you if you accidently target them!

Seawolf features four difficulty settings, with a matching color-coded score display so you can tell which difficulty setting you are playing at quick glance. Seawolf is the first Atari 2600 homebrew to feature 24 pixel wide multicolor sprites.

Seawolf includes a full-color eight page manual to accompany the game.

 Space Battle

The intergalactic treaty of 2345 has been broken by a race known as the G'ohrn. You are on patrol in the Gamma Sector of the Dyni'bian Cluster when you receive a distress call from Earth outpost #4.

In Space Battle, you must defend a remote Earth outpost from attacking invaders! But it's not as easy as it sounds--before you can even face the enemy onslaught, you must first land your ship on the outpost's defense platform while evading an enemy sentry! Once on the platform, you will then face the first wave of enemy fighters. Can you destroy them before depleting your fuel supply? To keep your fuel from running low, be sure to pick up the fuel pods released by exploding enemy vessels!

After you destroy the first wave, you'll then be faced with two morphing Kh'rylian Destroyers, and not only do they not drop fuel pods but they require several shots to destroy! And should you survive their fury, you won't have time for a break, as the enemies will send wave after wave of invaders to test your mettle!

 Squish 'Em

It seems ridiculous - and too good to be true. Are there really suitcases full of money at the top of those unfinished buildings downtown? The ones still under construction? And those suitcases, they're just there for the taking? You would never have believed it except that the guy who told you about it, a regular union guy like you, just bought a brand new Corvette. You know that two weeks ago he didn't have that kind of money, so you guess he's telling the truth. When you asked him how come he didn't get the rest of the suitcases, he got an odd look on his face and wouldn't say another word. Strange...

Your objective in Squish 'Em is to climb those 48-floor buildings to grab the cash-filled suitcase at the top of each one. As if scaling the heights of the buildings was not dangerous enough, you have to be alert for falling bricks from above and watch for creepy critters who've made these buildings their home! Once you reach the top of each building, you can grab the suitcase and continue to the next building.

Along the way you'll encounter a wide range of critters that you must avoid or jump over. You can even squish the creatures with your feet, but you can only squish each creature once before they turn white with rage and pop back up, looking for revenge! Once a creature has turned white you cannot squish it again! In addition to the creatures, each building has a bonus item that you can collect to receive an extra man.

Squish 'Em is a near flawless port of the old Atari 8-bit computer name of the same name--fans of the original game will be pleased to see this impressive and addictive incarnation of the game on the Atari 2600!

Includes cartridge and four-page, full-color manual.

 Toyshop Trouble

Ah, the Bahamas. Toyshop elves Patrick, Quincy, and Robert are laying on the beach, relaxing in the sun. Nothing could be finer than listening to the surf while enjoying a cold drink. A great reward for having gotten all of Santa's toys painted in record time. Unfortunately for you, Patrick's idea of "painting" toys was dumping them all in a bucket of gray paint. While this technically fulfilled his associates' obligations (thus their trip to the Bahamas), the toys--alas--still have to be painted properly.

It's now your job to clean up their mess, which means properly painting the toys in time for Santa's departure Christmas Eve. You must paint the toys as they move along five conveyor belts. Ahh, but only if it were as easy as it sounds! Toys must be painted the proper color, and some toys require two coats of paint (with different colors), and if that wasn't bad enough, some must have their coats applied in the proper order! And not that you needed the additional pressure, but you also have a daily quota to meet. You must properly paint all the toys that appear on the conveyor belts each day before the whistle at the end of your shift sounds!

Santa's counting on you to ensure that all the toys are painted correctly! Can you get the job done before Santa's sleigh is loaded up on Christmas Eve? You don't want to be responsible for children waking up Christmas morning without toys under their trees, do you? Time to juggle those cans of paint and get moving!

Includes cartridge and four-page, full-color manual.

Wisconson Political 2-Pack:
MacIver and Balloon Protest

Programmed deep beneath the surface in the Homebrew Heaven underground lab, these are Good Deal Games EXCLUSIVE releases!

One game features the
Wisconsin union protestors
and one based on the RESPONSE to the Wisconsin union protestors.


Cartridge 1: MacIver

The story... The game author works for a think tank in Madison, called MacIver, and during the major protests this year they were taking pictures and documenting it. There were some real screwballs that didn't like them hanging around. There were zombie protesters that interrupted a ceremony for the special olympics, a guy on a segway who staged disruptions during committee meetings, and finally there was this guy in a pink dress who chased their intern around the Capitol for taking pictures. That's where the idea for this game came from.

Cartridge 2: Balloon Protest

During the Madison protests this year, protesters started bringing heart shaped balloons into the Capitol and releasing them in the rotunda. Their goal was to fill up the dome with these balloons. One day a staffer, who was going crazy from the months of protest chanting and singing in the building, snapped. He grabbed a letter opener and tried to pop these balloons. So in the game, you try to navigate heart shaped balloons up into the Capitol dome, while dodging the enraged staffer.
