I don't think so. That's the way it plays.
Thank you for sharing the copy of 2600 Adventure. It looks almost exactly as the original. But, it sure plays so slowly to the point of unplayable. Am I doing something wrong?

The ATR image contains both the BASIC file and a compiled version, called ADV1.COM. I was able to test this version on a 130XE by renaming it AUTORUN.SYS and re-booting with BASIC disabled.
I suspect it's written in Basic.
It'd be a good candidate to port in 100% assembler. Fairly sure a fair amount of reverse-engineering has been done on the Rom. Even if it hasn't, the game could probably be ported without too much pain, although about the only thing you'd keep is the algorithm for the enemy actions and the initial object placement.
