Track Ball Compatible Games?

Recommended Posts

Are there any original library 2600 games that work natively with the trackball?  I had heard centipede is supposed to work, but it only works in joystick mode.  If I switch the switch on the track ball to JS, it works, just not well.  The centipede just moves to the right and down (and not exactly because I am telling it to do that. But not entirely unrelated either), but will not go left.   I did try a hacked version and it appears to work fine.  For some reason I am wanting to say the 7800 version is supposed to work with it too.

 

If no games support it, why the heck did Atari release it?

No, there are no such games. Only our modern hacks. Also available in the AA store.

Missile Command on the Atari 8-bit computer has native support for Trak-Ball mode using the T key to toggle.

And Synapse’s SLIME does as well, activated the same way. Those are the only two that I’m aware of.

Final Legacy on the Atari 8 bit also has a native Trak-Ball mode, though it only works on one part of the game, IIRC.
