Atari 7800 Game Controls List

Recommended Posts

As a result of a recent post here, I finally went ahead and flushed out a controller guide that I had laid dormant for a while. It is pasted below along with a zipped spreadsheet attachment for any who are interested:

Atari 7800 Game Controls List_Rev02.zip

 

Side note...The button function columns serve as a general overview guide. For a few games, the features and purposes are not exhaustively listed due to the size constraints and practicality of keeping the data as an easy reference in a lookup cell within the same row-page.

 

Please feel free to add updates, corrections, etc., to this thread.

FYI, Asteroids can be played with a 2600 joystick. If a 2600 joystick is detected it remaps Hyperspace to down.

 

Also, Sentinel is missing it's setting in the list. Lightgun required.

Trebor-Xevious can be played with a 2600 joystick. The button fires both the zapper and blaster at the same time.

In the spreadsheet sirius is listed as homebrew when it is prototype.

Great list BTW!! :)

 

Thank you for the catch and the compliment.

I'll have Sirius' type changed over with the next update.

Alpha Race could be two button optional since by request I added an option to use button 2 as thrust if selected on options menu.

Yes thank you for this info, I like the pic versions as I can copy it to my phone and just view it in gallery and not have to load up an spreadsheet.
