I find I've been playing Taz, H.E.R.O., Ms. Hack, Seaweed Assault, and Adventure more than my other games lately. Even with the Harmony Cart and an extensive collection of ROMS, I keep gravitating back to these few games. How about you guys?

I'm playing Pitfall! It is as difficult as it is critically acclaimed.

Ms. Pac Man is usually always in my 2600. In addition, Space Invaders, Asteroids, Missile Command, and a few rounds of Star Voyager.

Pretty much the only Atari 2600 games I play on a regular basis are...

 

Defender II

Superman

E.T. The Extraterrestrial

Space Invaders Deluxe (hack)

Galaxian ND (hack)

Dig Dug

Pole Position

 

and sometimes Frogger.

I have a couple of favorites out at the moment...

 

Frostbite

Beamrider

Robotron (7800, but that's what I play on)

...and my solar-irradiated copy of Defender.  It's real jacked up.  I should make a video of it sometime.

Cool.

I haven't played Atari 2600 games for weeks until last night and played those plus H.E.R.O. and Berzerk.

The 2600 time machine never disappoints.

No, it certainly doesn't, does it? Stands the test of time right next to the more modern machines. My Atari 2600 is always within easy reach for a play or two of some of the classic games I loved as a kid. :)

Mr. Do's Castle.  Got to the third castle today.  And I've pretty much figured out how to bash the blocks out and kick the ladders.  A little practice goes a long way.

Cosmic Creeps.  Just got it.  Nice graphics, but not that fun. 
Super Challenge Baseball.  Got it for $1 at goodwill. 

Dragster - I think I'm the only person on Earth that likes this game.

Though I haven't played it much as an adult, we played the heck out of Dragster when I was a kid. Drag racing was a pretty big deal in California in the 60's, 70's. Stuff happened so I don't know about the early 80's.

 

As for games right now...none today. I actually read a book. Imagine that.  :-o

What is Seaweed Assault? Never heard of it. :D

 

I've been playing the no flashing hack of Beamrider (on the right side of the page).

On an intermittent basis, I've been pecking away at a text adventure game made for the 2600.  Its called Dark Mage (available as a cartridge in the AA store).  Anybody complete this game? (I'm actually new to text adventures)

It's a pretty interesting homebrew. The first time I tried it, I thought,"That was BORRRINNG!" Picked it back up several weeks later and gave it an honest go, and after the first few stages, it really amps up and becomes pretty challenging. Make sure you have a responsive joystick with a really good fire button, though. I use a SlikStik, and my hands get tired after extended play. You should try it out. I think you'll be pleased you did!

Sorry for the DELAYED response. Haven't been on here in quite a while. Been too busy actually playing Atari! Lol!

I'm completely lame right now and have not played anything in several weeks. I even got a Harmony Cart nearly three months ago and have yet to fire it up. I should put up or shut up and play some Pac-Man 4k or something.

My wife and I discovered the joy that is Circus Atari a few days ago! Phenomenal what some of the early 2600 games offered. This one keeps us hitting the game reset switch again and again. Paddle driven fun is guaranteed for all with this game!

Welcome to the club. This is the only console game my wife will even play.
