The next point I need to know is, which Atari 2600 games have a real ending and no endless gameplay until you lose your last life...

I only know about:

- Fatal Run
- Secret Quest (maybe, I don't know)
- Solaris

ET
PITFALL
KUNG FU MASTER
DOUBLE DRAGON
JAMES BOND 007
STAR STRIKE
SUPERMAN
ADVENTURE

Those are the ones I can think of of the top of my head. I am pretty sure they all having an ending.

Are you sure Kung Fu Master ends? As far as I remember it was just getting more difficult...

What is with Ikari Warriors? On the Atari 7800 it ends (president is dancing after being rescued), but as far as I remember you could keep on playing...

A lot of Activision games end when you reach 999,999 or 1 million. Do they count?

- Secret Quest (maybe, I don't know)


Verified. I beat it once years ago on real Atari hardware, the ending is rather... A letdown to say the least. :sad: It's a simple "DUN dun DUNNNNN" sound as the last base explodes with you safely in your ship. :roll: Thankfully the journey was more fun than the destination at least. :cool::thumbsup:

Once again Atari Falcon, like the post about 'best graphics', I have to suggest Tunnel Runner. Also has an ending as opposed to 'continue to you die or crash the program'. Great stuff! Can you tell I LOVE tunnel runner?

Only the first release, and I think it's an odd number like wave 83. Since some kid complained within a week of its release about the screen going black (which the author thought nobody would ever reach), an endless version was quickly hacked and replaced the original version.

Is this a joke, or is there really an end? This was one of my favorite games in the 80s...

I definately will have a look at tunnel runner...

It's a pitty they made an endless version for Demon Attack. I like games where you have a real goal to achieve. This is my biggest complaint against Phoenix, which is a really nice game anyway...

What about Super Kung Fu? I don't know if this can be beaten...

not really an "end", more like a bug:
