Fighter Command, Combat II and RealSports Basketball ROMS Released!

Recommended Posts

As promised, here are the 2600 ROM binaries for some games I recently discovered over the summer.  There will be more soon!

 

RealSports Basketball appears to be the same version that is already out there, but I am including it as it was part of the find.

Great stuff, Tempest! Nicely done, as usual.

 

Thanks for sharing the ROM, Dutchman!

 

My two cents: Sounds like Firefox. If it had the capability to fire missiles from the back of the jet, that would likely be the proof. Alas, we are left only to speculate... again.

I share your suspicions, especially due to the fact you start in a hangar like in the film.

 

Dutchman thanks for all your hard work.

If it really is Firefox though then why call it Fighter Command then Combat II?  Then again Gremlins was called Gargoyles to hide its true identity.

Didn't Fox have the license, and couldn't it be that licensing issues may have led to name changes? Examples: Bank Heist was originally called Bonnie and Clyde, then Roaring Twenties. Crash Dive was originally called Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. Since we're speculating anyway, let's assume anything is possible.

Maybe, but Atari did do the arcade game.  You'd think they'd also have the home rights too.

...and it was released in 1982 by Warner Bros., another indicator of a possible Atari connection. We'll figure this out yet...

Nope.  They would have had to remove the labels to erase the EPROMs for reuse.  We are not sure at all why the game is labeled Combat II.

Nope...separate licensing.  Home computer vs. game console rights were also divided.

I'd really like to see Combat II finished.  It reminds me of Air Raiders.  If one of our homebrew programmers could put hit detection in it the game would be great.  What we have so far really pushes the 2600 to its limits.
