Plaque Attack - Clone on 8bit?

Wed Jan 10, 2018 3:36 PM

Hi ,


just fell in love with VCS 2600 Plaque Attack from Activision. I think it can make my Son better clean his teeth :)


Is there any clone or even conversion of this game for the 800/XL/XE line?

Any other tooth related games ?




Atari games with commercials?

Sat Dec 2, 2017 8:03 AM

Hi there,


seeing all these nasty ad-sponsored smartphone games of today I wonder if there were games in the 8bit age with similiar commercial approaches.

Obviously In-app sales wasn't a 80s thing :) But were there games with commercial breaks?!


I know that few Atari games had commercials and/or sponsorings.  Beside game demo disks from software vendors here is what come to my mind:


* Tapper (Mountain Dew/PepsiCo)

* Thera-Med Zahnschutz Spiel (Henkel)

* Kennedy Approach? (Air France, Delta, American Airlines)


Can we create a list of other commercial / promotional games? 

Or games with references to real corporations?
