EDIT I switched the difficulty switch and it is now working

 

So I recently got a 7800 (with expansion port) up and running so I decided to test a couple of games.  To my surprise the cult classic Koolaid Man has an incompatibility, where it freezes before the intro animation of the Koolaid man doing his signature breaking through the wall.  I cleaned everything and tried again to no avail.  I popped it into my 4 switch woody and it popped up with the Koolaid man busting through the wall.  That brings me to the question; what other 2600 games are known to not work with the 7800?

In the grand scheme of things, the vast overwhelming majority of 2600 games play on all 7800s. There's only a handful that are problematic on some systems really.

...rom images aside and yes, but... many Atari games simply don't fit in the 7800's cartridge slot. I'm reminded of this every time I go to play an Imagic or Data Age game in one of my 7800's. And Activision carts are sooooo tight, I don't dare insert most of them. :(
