    I joined here in 2001, just a few months after the site launched. I've been playing Atari 2600 since the early 80s. It was my first console. I haven't been as active on this website as I would have liked over the years, because you know - LIFE. But I have continued to collect Atari 2600 games throughout all those years. When I was a kid, I probably had maybe 30 Atari 2600 games at most. Now, I'm about 20 games shy of a complete collection. (Not counting homebrews or label variations) This would not have been possible without the amazing wealth of knowledge this website has graced us with. Thanks to the creators of this site, and thanks to all the contributors for making this a constant source of nostalgic joy. Keep it up guys.

  1. Thanks so much for that enlightened answer! I am curious now what the other Top 5 debatable NTSC titles are!
  2. Does Seamonster have another name? Or is it a unique game not under any other name. Was it released in the USA as NTSC? Or only overseas?
  3. I have seen many different label versions of Gauntlet by Answer Software for Atari 2600 floating around. There is a plain black cart with text, a double ender and also a picture cart with a man running with a log in the foreground. What is the deal with this cartridge? Which version is the original authentic version of the game?
  4. As the title says, what are the best CARTRIDGE based atari computer games in your opinion?
  5. Hmm, so is the Puzzy by CCE the same game as the other ones? If it is the same game, which is the more popular version that most people have played?
  6. I have a copy of Space Tunnel by the company CCE. I looked up the company on this site, and I don't see Space Tunnel listed for that company. http://atariage.com/company_page.php?SystemID=2600&CompanyID=97 I see Space Tunnel was released by Polyvox and Puzzy as well. Polyvox http://atariage.com/software_page.php?SoftwareLabelID=1429 Puzzy http://atariage.com/software_page.php?SoftwareLabelID=2706 Is the CCE version of Space Tunnel rare?
  7. I've been collecting Atari 2600, 5200 and 7800 games for many years. But I've only recently gotten into collecting Atari 8-Bit computer stuff. And I have several basic questions.. I am curious which games work for which computers? For example, can I play Atari 800 games on the Atari 400? Can Atari XE games be played on the Atari 400? Can Atari XE Games be played on the 800 or 800xl? And is there a list anywhere of which games were released for each computer? I saw atarimania has a good index of the games, but I was hoping to find a basic text list of the games for each system. I'm assuming each one of these computers had a disk drive. Is there a disk drive that works with all the computers or does one need to own ALL of the disk drives? Also, since many floppy disks don't work any more, is there a better way to play Atari computer floppy games? I have heard of Floppy emus. Does that exist for Atari computers? Also, which of these computers is the most sought after? Which do you consider to be the best one to own?
  8. I am looking for the Berenstein Bears audio cassettes that were sold as an additional thing for the 2600 game. If anyone out there has the cassettes and is looking to sell them, please contact me. Thanks!
  9. Probably a pretty basic question that's been answered a million times before. But how many Text-Number Atari carts were there? Any what were they exactly?
  10. This thread needs to be retitled.
  11. I just updated this list, as I have gotten several more titles. If anyone has any of the games listed above, please let me know! Also, I am now trying to collect all the CX carts as well. I will update with a list of those soon.
  12. I'm wondering exactly which games were the black ones that say game program. It seems some of the CX carts are picture labels only. For example, Fatal Run does not have a "game program" black cart version. Is there a part of the website that JUST lists those? Basically dividing up the CX carts between label and no-label
  13. Okay, the second controller port worked. But my WICO controllers are so out of alignment it doesn't seem to matter anyway.
  14. I tried to play Wizard of Wor for my 5200 tonight and was having some issues. Maybe someone can help. I have a working Atari 5200, and I use a Wico controller. I am able to play my other games, such as Galaxian. Works just fine. But when I try and play Wizard of Wor, nothing happens. I hit the start button on the original controller, which starts the game. And the the character just wont move or fire. Any ideas what could be wrong?
