AJ, some things to consider for your list:

Caverns of Mars - Included in Flashback 2. I don't know if there is any connection between this and the Graduate version.

Entity - FOUND! Released August of 2003 at CGE.

Flap! - Wing War was a "working title" until Imagic finally decided to release it as PAL only. Flap! MAY have been what they had in mind before settling on Wing War. I "heard" this somewhere, but don't have documentation to confirm it, so consider it speculative.

Hercules - from the 1983 Xonox CES Press Kit:
XonoxHercules.jpg XonoxHercCancel.jpg
This is certainly not proof that code was never written for this game. The 8.5x11 "notice" informed dealers that it had been removed from their lineup BEFORE orders were taken.

High Seas - Working title for Sea Battle, released August of 2001 at CGE.

Kamikaze Saucers - FOUND!

Solar Defense - Released fall of 1983 by Imagic as Laser Gates.

Quest for the Idol, Space Robot, Spider Kong - from the 1983 Ultravision CES Press Kit:
UltravisionPressKit05.jpg
The Spider Kong released by Funvision is actually Fox's Spacemaster X7. The Spider Kong released by Goliath is also known as Pac Kong, possibly the actual game referred to in this Price List.
Space Robot is an 83% hack of Atari's Missile Command, and was first released by Dimax, later by Goliath.
Quest for the Idol has been the subject of much speculation by Romhunter and I. Some hand-drawn artwork from the Press Kit, and the box art from the HES release of Challenge suggests that the code written for Challenge may be Quest for the Idol's "work in progress". Pure guesswork!

Stone Age - Here I must ask a question, AJ. What evidence is there that this was a Technovision title? Romhunter thinks this MAY be Dinograms by Zimag, and this seems logical. CCE released EVERY Zimag title except Spinning Fireball, but released ZERO Technovision titles. If Stone Age WAS by Technovision, and CCE pirated it, you'd think they would have pirated Nuts and/or Pharaoh's Curse and/or Save Our Ship as well. NEED INPUT!

Caverns of Mars - I don't know if there is any connection between the Graduate version and the one for the 2600 that is part of the Flashback 2, but here is the 2600 BIN:

According to my files, the FB2 version is a recent homebrew.


Entity - FOUND! Released August of 2003 at CGE.

Flap! - Wing War was a "working title" until Imagic finally decided to release it as PAL only. Flap! MAY have been what they had in mind before settling on Wing War. I "heard" this somewhere, but don't have documentation to confirm it, so consider it speculative.

High Seas - Working title for Sea Battle, released August of 2001 at CGE.

Kamikaze Saucers - FOUND!

I had these already for my next update (still work in progress). Flap! is indeed the working title of Wing War, according to my Aliases file. Don't know where I picked that info up from, though.


Hercules - from the 1983 Xonox CES Press Kit:
XonoxHercules.jpg XonoxHercCancel.jpg
This is certainly not proof that code was never written for this game. The 8.5x11 "notice" informed dealers that it had been removed from their lineup BEFORE orders were taken.

Well, the only change this makes is the game's full title.


Solar Defense - Released fall of 1983 by Imagic as Laser Gates.

This is a new one to me, thank you.


Quest for the Idol, Space Robot, Spider Kong - from the 1983 Ultravision CES Press Kit:
UltravisionPressKit05.jpg
The Spider Kong released by Funvision is actually Fox's Spacemaster X7. The Spider Kong released by Goliath is also known as Pac Kong, possibly the actual game referred to in this Price List.
Space Robot is an 83% hack of Atari's Missile Command, and was first released by Dimax, later by Goliath.

I remember reading about the two different Spider Kongs before but didn't have that info in my Aliases file until now, thank you.


Quest for the Idol has been the subject of much speculation by Romhunter and I. Some hand-drawn artwork from the Press Kit, and the box art from the HES release of Challenge suggests that the code written for Challenge may be Quest for the Idol's "work in progress". Pure guesswork!

I'll mark that one as a possible alias.


Stone Age - Here I must ask a question, AJ. What evidence is there that this was a Technovision title? Romhunter thinks this MAY be Dinograms by Zimag, and this seems logical. CCE released EVERY Zimag title except Spinning Fireball, but released ZERO Technovision titles.

That is what was in the original list that I'm updating -- see post #1 of this topic; I have no other info on file, nor personal knowledge about Stone Age.

I should have known that, Wickey. Thanks for the reminder. It has been removed. You might want to remove it from your quote as well.

Can't edit my post any more, but it looks like the link is broken.

Here's a new update. Aside from adding titles from Atariprotos.com, I have also added two new categories to the NOTES column: "FOUND-" for instances in which the most complete binary of a title is not publicly available, but one or more earlier versions is (example: Good Luck, Charlie Brown). And "VAPOR" for titles which are believed never to have had any coding started (example: Attack of the Baby Seals). There are not yet many titles using these annotations, so please let me know which should receive them. Also, I'm fairly sure there are several titles for which a publisher's item number was announced, but it is not yet included here -- please let me know of any I missed from Atariprotos, or any other sources.

Atari 2600 Carts Reported as Unreleased

Last updated 2010-07-27

Key:
ALIAS game is better known by another name-- in most cases, released
FOUND game exists and binary has become readily available to the public
FOUND- most complete known binary not publicly available, but earlier is
EXISTS game prototype, EPROM, or binary has been discovered or is believed
       to be in a private collection but the binary is not publicly released
MAY EXIST at least one credible source confirms that at least some coding of
          the game was started - perhaps as little as a 1-screen static demo
ALIAS+EXISTS Space Mission was a working title shown in ads for what Atari
             released as Star Ship. The game was also released by Sears
             as Outer Space. However, one person has found an Atari-branded
             cartridge bearing the Space Mission name.
EXISTS+ALIAS one copy of the Pink Panther game is known to exist. The game
             is known by several different titles.
VAPOR it is believed that no coding ever took place for this title

Titles without any entry in the NOTES column may never have been started.
If the NOTES entry is a system name, that title was not a VCS game.
If the NOTES entry is a different publisher, the game was released by that
publisher.

Solar Defense - Released fall of 1983 by Imagic as Laser Gates.

This is a new one to me, thank you.


Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Laser Gates' original title Inner Space?

I'm working on updating my Aliases file now. Here's what I have so far for Laser Gates:
Laser Gates
 Ataque Laser; Cavern Blaster; Inner Space; Laaser Voley; Laser Gate;
 Laser Volley; Solar Defense; Space Channel; Weltraum Tunnel; Weltraumtunnel

Microsurgeon                          Imagic


I believe that the entry above should be changed to the following:

Microsurgeon                          Imagic                 INTELLIVISION


I know this was intended to be made for the Intellivision, and possibly other systems more capable than the 2600. I believe, though have not verified, that it was indeed released for the Intellivision.

I do not feel that there ever would be a consideration to implement such a game on the 2600 (especially at the time... Look out for the guy that ported StarCastle ;) ) due to the complexity of the graphics, etc.

So, I strongly question the likelihood of there ever having been an announcement for this game to be released on the 2600.

Yeah I thought so too. Weren't there supposed to be three titles in that series?

@mwalden: Thank you, info added.

@bfstats: Per MagMax667 and Tempest's comments, can you provide a reference for Solar Defense = Laser Gates? I don't remember anything particularly "solar" in the game. Not that that's probative, mind you...

AJ, that was based on memory. After CGE, I'll dig into my archives and try to find verification. That said, I may be mis-remembering, but I know ONE of the two unreleased VentureVision games IS Laser Gates.

Solar Defense is the sequel to Rescue Terra I:

Laser Gates would have been a VentureVision game as well, but was eventually released by Imagic.

I'm almost ready to post another update, but first maybe I can get some more info.

Does anyone know what the relationship was between Cumma and 20th Century Fox? Were they just a programming house under contract, like GCC was to Atari?

There seems to be some indication that the Entex titles were intended for a computer/keyboard add-on to the VCS, similar to the Spectravideo Compumate or Atari's The Graduate. Is this correct, and if so what was it to be called?

AJ,

I have not been able to find the press release I thought I read years ago that stated Imagic had acquired a VentureVision title and released it as Laser Gates. The Digital Press Collector's Guide states that game was indeed Inner Space, NOT Solar Defense, so apparently I remembered it wrong, as suspected.

Rom, thanks for your input.

I stand corrected.

OK, after three weeks, no answers to my questions, so here's my latest update:
Atari VCS 2600 Cartridges Reported as Unreleased

Last updated 2010-08-29

Key:
ALIAS game is better known by another name-- in most cases, released
FOUND game exists and binary has become readily available to the public
FOUND- most complete known binary not publicly available, but earlier is
EXISTS game prototype cartridge/board, EPROM, binary or source code has been
       discovered or is believed to be in a private collection but the
       binary is not publicly released
MAY EXIST at least one credible source confirms that at least some coding of
          the game was started - perhaps as little as a 1-screen static demo
ALIAS+EXISTS Space Mission was a working title shown in ads for what Atari
             released as Star Ship. The game was also released by Sears
             as Outer Space. However, one person has found an Atari-branded
             cartridge bearing the Space Mission name.
EXISTS+ALIAS one copy of the Pink Panther game is known to exist. The game
             is known by several different titles.
FOUND+ALIAS Computer Chess was the working title of Video Chess. The
            prototype has additional features that were removed from the
            released version for unknown reasons. The only known cartridge
            with this name has a production end label.
VAPOR it is believed that no coding ever took place for this title

Titles without any entry in the NOTES column may never have been started.
If the NOTES entry is a system name or "8 BIT COMPUTERS", that title was not
 a VCS game.
If the NOTES entry is a different publisher, the game was released
 (or intended for release) by that publisher.

Here for your convenience are the unanswered questions from my previous posts in this topic:

Squish 'em would have been released as The Fall Guy by TCF

I knew that, but what I don't know, is whether the game was changed at all in order to fit the name change. Is it just an alias, or are we looking for two slightly different games, like Saboteur and The A-Team? Or perhaps games with bigger differences, such as The Last Starfighter and Solaris, Solaris and Radar Lock, or even The Last Starfighter and Radar Lock?


Thundarr the Barbarian was a WIP name for Tomarc the Barbarian

I knew that, but what's with the "I/II"? Were there really two games in the pipeline, and if so, what happened regarding "II"?



Does anyone know what the relationship was between Cumma and 20th Century Fox? Were they just a programming house under contract, like GCC was to Atari?



There seems to be some indication that the Entex titles were intended for a computer/keyboard add-on to the VCS, similar to the Spectravideo Compumate or Atari's The Graduate. Is this correct, and if so what was it to be called?

I doubt it. Cumma Technology Corporation was behind the MetaWriter, another one of those electronic software distribution systems.

Entex had the Piggyback.

Thanks for the info, CRV. The Piggyback stuff will be in my next update. That AGH page is very informative, but someone needs to look up the word "laud" :lol:.

The reason I asked about the relationship (if any) between Cumma and 20th Century Fox, is that this list has "Atom Smasher" as by Cumma, while it's reported elsewhere that Atom Smasher was a working title for 20th's Meltdown. So the question now is, is that info correct, and if so, are they the same game? Or were the two uses of the "Atom Smasher" name by two different companies merely coincidental?

Per Digital Press:

According to programmer Howard Delman, the game was completed at Videa (under the name Atom Smasher), but after deciding not to produce it, sold it to 20th Century Fox. They renamed it Meltdown, but also chose not to release it, and instead sold it to Atari (who- surprise, never released it). Since Videa received $ each time it was sold, this was probably the only unreleased title that actually made $! Uber historian Leonard Herman notes Cumma Technology used Meltdown (under the name Atom Smasher) with their MetaWriter display at the same show!

Wait a minute... Atom Smasher/Meltdown was last an ATARI title, not 20th Century Fox? And it was really made by Videa... so did Cumma actually have rights to it at some point? Or did they have nothing to do with it, other than "borrowing" it for the 1983 Winter CES?

Nolan Bushnell, Al Alcorn, and Joseph Keenan started Cumma. Pizza Time Theatre, which involved Bushnell and Keenan, bought Videa. I'm leaving out details, but I think you can make the connection.

There was an original game by Atari called Meltdown, don't confuse the two. It was released for the 7800 but it was also planned for the 2600.

I would say that to the list one could safely assume that Inner Space is Laser Gates and based on the screen shot that Solar Defense may exist in some form.
