I own more than 300, but I will highly recommend:

Alia Quest

Medieval Mayhem

Sound Paddle

and the 2003 1K mini game competition cart with 4 games on it- fight for the high scores on Splatform and Cave 1k.

 

Those are what I play the most with friends and family.

Sound Paddle is not a game, it's a sound generating program that uses the 2600's built in voices and tones. One paddle changes the voice, the other changes the tone. You basically make really crunch music with it. It's fun for two people to play a 2600 like an instrument. There is also SoundX, which does the same thing with a joystick. A compilation of both would be neat.

That's what I thought. I have SoundX. May need to combine our collection. :)

Just got Defend Your Castle. Used a combat cartridge to house it. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I really like the option to buy the PCB and the labels and just put it in a cartridge myself. Saves labor costs. I'd buy more homebrews if more authors offered it. Mr. Atari has a good idea here...

Also picked up a personal holy grail..Boulder Dash. I played it briefly, but have to say that I am very impressed with this game. The title screen music sounds great, Rockford's movement is smooth and the colors are fine, even on my old CRT.

 

I'll add a true review after I log some real playing time. Hats off to everyone involved for bringing this to the 2600 :thumbsup:
