BACKGROUND:

 

ALIEN GREED 4 (ALIEN GREED ADVENTURE) takes place in a familiar setting to many Atari 2600 fans - it's in the setting of ADVENTURE!

There are three other games as well that Chris has created. Alien Greed, Alien Greed 2, and Alien Greed 3. All of the games are parodies of

the collector who is a completist, or one who "must have them all."

You play the role of a little green alien, and in your quest to collect Atari 2600 game cartridges in the setting of ADVENTURE,

you will run into many adversaries and obstacles who are out to stop you, including a dragon!

Once your little green alien collects 20 Atari 2600 cartridges, a key appears. Grab the key and head to the yellow castle and you

will enter the boss stage! There's lots to explore, so reserve your copy today!

 

ALIEN GREED 4 is It is not a "hack" of Adventure (by Atari).

ALIEN GREED 4 is a 16K NTSC videogame cartridge for the Atari 2600 and was programmed by Chris Read using batari BASIC,

which was created by Fred Quimby.

 

As a comparison note, ADVENTURE (by Atari), which was programmed and created by Warren Robinett, is 4K in size.
