Nobody cares about Pepsi Invaders, Air Raid or Atlantis 2, they are just crappy hacks :D

Demon Attack. A very common game and very addicting to play. Also I like Superman. Krull was always a little bit challenging too.

An impressive list of games you have! You have more than I did when I had my Atari 2600 (I had about 50 or so). Here are some games that you may want to consider getting:

 

Galaxian

Megamania

Spider Man

Phoenix

Super Breakout

 

I also agree that Demon Attack is a great game.

Nice collection you have going there. Can't believe nobody's mentioned Montezuma's Revenge yet though! Easily one of the best and most replay friendly games for the 2600. Some of those hard to find games people are talking about... they're just pulling your leg. Most of 'em are complete crap and you'll end up sorry you ever spent so much on 'em - IMO.

 

Gorf

Pengo

Road Runner (someone else already mentioned)

Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back

Star Wars Arcade

Track and Field

Tutankham

Wizard of Wor

 

...ALL of these games would be my #1 priorities if I didn't already have 'em. Great playing games that won't break the bank!

Space Shuttle

Oh yeah, I'll get right on those. I'll hit some garage sales, stop at a few Goodwills. :lol:

 

 

Pac Man Jr.

 

I already have that one, I listed it as Jr. Pacman. I picked it up at Vidiots, which is unfortunately too far away for me to make frequent trips to. I have to admit I've never managed to clear even the first maze...came damn close, but I obviously just don't have the skills for this one...yet.

 

Atari 2600 collecting...pretty unusual hobby for a 22 year old girl...then again, I'm a pretty unusual girl. But it's all a part of my love for the 80's in general (music too). :cool:

Bought Dragonfire today, making it a total of 79. Now I need to cool it for a good while. I've been spending too much on the hobby lately.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned the homebrew scene- I've been playing the heck out of ladybug, it makes most original games seem boring or somehow lacking.

I heard that Albert has already begun the process to ban you from AA for not having those 2 required carts. Didn't you read the ToS when you signed up? :P

Dragonfire is awesome, good pick.

 

I second Atlantis, Montezuma's Revenge, Phoenix, Wizard of Wor, and Demon Attack.

 

If you pick up any homebrews, I highly HIGHLY recommend Medieval Mayhem. It's really pretty fantastic. Fall Down is awesome as well, though you should really have people to play with for both games. Medieval Mayhem is 4 player with paddles, Fall Down is 2 player. You can play them both by yourself and have plenty of fun, though.

If you're unsure which direction to go, you can't go wrong with carts from Activision or Imagic. Parker Brothers is right up there with them. Starpath games are excellent, IMO, but they can be a tad expensive and setting it all up to play them is a bit annoying. Perhaps you'd be interested in Stella Gets a New Brain?

 

Stella's Stocking is good year 'round, even though it's Christmas themed.

 

Just some specifics off the top of my head:

Chopper Command

Megamania

Subterranea (might cost you a bit)

Dragonstomper (also might cost a bit, but well worth it!)

Bump 'n' Jump

Super Breakout

Jawbreaker

Solar Storm

Moonsweeper

M*A*S*H

Turmoil

Escape From the MindMaster

Tunnel Runner

I love Jawbreaker but I never bought it because I play on a 7800, and Tigervision gams don't work with it unless you take the system apart and and modify it. I have a 2600 Jr., but I don't have the hookups for it. I guess some people would cry foul for only playing 2600 games on a 7800, but it's the 7800 that has nostalgia value for me. Robot Tank works fine on it too.
