  1. Some ideas for games I'll never get around to programming myself, but which would be awfully fun to play, that someone ought to make, so I might as well put the ideas out there... I have been dreaming up 4 and more player games since the 8-bit days. Not network games, but the heat of competition and the fun of playing with your friends right there next to you, crowded around the TV. Back in the day I designed a 4-joystick adapter for the C64 on paper. I never got around to making it, but recently saw this QuadraStik Adapter for the 2600, which may or may not actually exist. ← UPDATE: Nathan from the site wrote back and said they are getting close! Seeing that fired up the old dream, and inspired me to mock up some games I've always wanted to see. These aren't terribly original, just mashing up various elements from some old favorites. Some of these might exceed the limitations of the 2600 (in that case, how about for a computer like the Atari 800 which has 4 joystick ports out of the box?) but with emulators and modern technology I have heard about 16k or 32k cartridges, Arduino powered circuits, etc., anything's possible. Anyway here are some that might be fun to make... enjoy
  2. Hi I'm new to forums and also new to Atari 2600 programming. My friends and I are CS undergrads at TAMU and have been wanting to write a game for a retro console for a while now, being that we have a 2600 in our posession and have found a good development environment for the 2600 we are ready to go. We however are currently not sure what to make, we have been trying to play the 2600 as much as possible to try and see what the limitations of the system are and what genres would work well but we are still drawing a blank. We were wondering if anyone here had any ideas that we could implement. Please if you have any ideas let us know, we will be posting the finished rom for free and possible open source here. And if we end up using an idea given to us we will happily mail the creator of the idea a finished cartridge version if possible. All ideas are welcome, thanks for the input
