"Chicken" 800xl ported for the 5200? Is there a conversion rom out there?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone remember the game "Chicken" on 800xl, I used to play it daily it had really simple gameplay similar to frogger and was very addictive.

I'm wondering if anyone has done a 5200 port, I would love to have the rom on my atarimax sd cart!

 

If there isn't a conversion for "chicken" maybe a port of "freeway" from the 2600 system?

Yes, its in the Atarimax area. Its a great game. I like it better then frogger!

Thanks Mike, 

 

Can you help me find the "Atarimax area" you are referring to, I'm new here and can't find a damn thing on the atarimax forums, come to think of it I have a hard time searching and finding things here as well... any help would be greatly appreciated!

You guys are correct, it's definitely not the game i'm looking for. The chicken I'm looking for was released for the 800xl, it's similar to frogger or freeway for 2600, but you move the chicken from top to bottom dodging cars. See link:

I think the picture in the OP is from a type-in program from Antic magazine also called Chicken. There was a second version that works on XL machines as the original only worked on 400/800. It was a BASIC program so not sure how it'll work on a 5200...

Interesting, no wonder nobody knows anything about the "Chicken" title I'm referring to, I originally played it as a kid on an 800XL. I recently acquired a nice XEGS and the flashcart is on it's way so I should hopefully be able to play this game now right!
