We've come a long way.

 

What a mess.

 

Fascinating, nontheless.

 

Quite some WIP names of released titles.

 

BTW: several of the Ultravision titles on this list are for the Colecovision, not the VCS.

This list is not only good for seeing what has not been released,but also what was once considered unreleased but now widely available.

Rom Hunter has a rom of a technovision game called "Jungle Jim" every been discovered ?,i got an 1983 Atari price catalog today and it is mentioned in there ?

Not that I know.

 

The only TechnoVision proto I believe in is Locomotive (TVS1004).

 

That one was actually shown at the CES once.

Dragon's Lair for the VCS ???????????????

I knew of the Coleco porting for its Adam (that is obviously almost the same of the C=64 game...) and I remember I followed its development since it was announced in that early 80's period... but never knew of a VCS porting !

btw: I am programming something regarding that game ( ;) ) for the VCS in my spare time (that is MUCH less than years ago... :( )

Dragon's Lair for the VCS ???????????????

Just imagine what a huge piece of shit that would have been :D

Game play would work fine, same controls, 4 directions, 1 button, choose one at a specific time, put the game play on a betamax tape... I had a ½" reel to reel B/W portable video recorder back then I recorded gameplay on!

I don't see why Dragons Lair couldn't be ported to the 2600. I imagine it would look somewhat similar to the Colecovision/ADAM version, just with the requisite downgrade in graphics. Some of the scenes would have had to be trimmed as well.

Interesting list! I see that Tarzan was also listed. Am I dreaming or was a prototype of Tarzan found?

 

It definitely existed at one point, though I don't believe a copy has surfaced yet.

YEAH, it would be disgusting... but remember most of the best games for the VCS are graphically tame :D !

That's the VCS :) !

An interactive game would not fit even in 128 kbytes... I pondered this way long ago, but I immediately quit it !

Tempest: that's my intention ;) !

 

how many of the screens could you fit, I wonder?

 

I am studying the way to fit in 16k FIVE "fixed" kernels with different sprites to save memory (dunno much in terms of bankswitching...:() and have "similar-but-different" scenes...

 

BUT

 

... it could be like this ...

A lot of games would have been made if the crash had been delayed just six months in some cases...

List is missing Aquaventure, but it was released on the Flashback 2 so maybe that counts. Nice list *saved* thanks! I'll have to look through it in- depth later.

 

The list is of titles that had not been found at the time of publication ;)

By the way, since we're on the subject of unreleased games...

 

I noticed that on this list (and others) 3D Asteroids is listed as CX26105. I don't have evidence, but I believe that this number was originally assigned to the unreleased "Count's Castle" game. It would make perfect sense because that number is right in the middle of the Children's/CCW section. Can anyone confirm this?

Last night I made some notes to the list as to which games I know to have been found, aliases, errors (not VCS titles), etc., and was wondering if I wasn't reinventing the wheel. Does someone already have a copy of this list, with complete up-to-date annotations?

IIRC Tempest did something like that some years ago.

You are in a lair, with a dragon surrounding you on all sides. A path leads south.

 

Just like:

 

"You are in a comfortable tunnel like hall.

To the East is a roun green door.

You see:

-a wooden chest

-Gandalf. Gandalf is carrying..."

 

:P

Yes, but the RAM problem had been solved later in the life of the 2600. Sara, CBS RAM+, etc.

Well it's not a list, but there's the rumor mill section on my website. http://www.atariprotos.com/rumormill/2600/2600rumor.htm

 

I've only listed games here that were confirmed to have been in development at one point and seen (no vaporware). So any game on this list has a chance of being found.
