Recommended Posts

Alien Adventures

The game is sold out (of course) . Anyone here own this cartridge, and the rest (Alien figure).

Any rom available for this? I couldn't find one in the links posted. I would love to play it on my Flashback 9 or Harmony Encore and review it for The Atari Report - 2600 Edition someday.


...and yes, Martina will get full credit for it as I always do for all original programmers on every review.

Lost Classics has never released ROMs for any of their games that I'm aware of. I suppose you could try contacting them directly to see if they'd be willing to send it to you to use for your show.


I remember seeing Alien Adventures for sale at PRGE and the screenshots weren't very impressive. I know screenshots don't tell the whole story, but they certainly didn't entice me to buy a game I'd never seen or played. I did pick up Landfill, the other game they were selling that year, and was not impressed with it.
