What are your favourite Atari 2600 sound effects?

Recommended Posts

I'm not a huge fan of the Pac-Man sound effects but I have to admit I keep hearing them in movies and commercials. They've become the de facto sounds to indicate "this guy is playing a video game" in a scene. The best one was Febreeze where the mom comes in to yell at the kid but because his room smells nice she becomes happy. The kid is clearly playing a GameBoy Advance SP and yet it is definitely 2600 Pac-Man bleeping and blooping out of it.

 

This is so prevalent in media that it even has its own TV Tropes entry (Warning: The TV Tropes Wiki is a huge time sink; enter at your own risk! :!: ).

 

The completion sound in Adventure, puts a smile on my face whenever I hear it :)

 

Adventure will never stop being my favorite video game. Ever. :cool:

I always liked the sounds of the ship in Star Raiders when everything is critical and your ship can only take 1 more hit before being vaporized. Your blaster fire is all jacked up, the engines are intermittant... Then all of a sudden an enemy cruiser shows up and blows you away... Star Raiders is still one of my favorites.

ANY sound on Yar Revenge. Those are classic 2600 sounds.

 

The background space sound of Starmaster.

 

The warning sound in Star Wars TESB when a walker gets close to your base.
