Favorite space 2600 game

Recommended Posts

Back when I was a kid, these were my favorites:

 

Starmaster

Star Voyager

Vanguard

Phoenix

 

I also played a ton of Tac-Scan, Space Attack, and Cosmic Ark. While I like Star Raiders, the extra controller didn't do it for me.

4. Star Voyager

3. Star Raiders

2. Starmaster

1. Phaser Patrol

There are a LOT of space games for the 2600 but here are my top 3

 

1-Space invaders

2-Asteroids

3-Gorf?

Can't go wrong with these and if your into homebrews, the following would make worthy additions to any ones collection.

 

1. Space Instigators

2. Space Rocks

3. Gorf Arcade - currently a WIP.  Will include all 5 arcade level, speech and more.

Thanks for the recommendation will check out! 

By the way, you can't love Space Games and not have a copy of Space Game.  IMO, this is an excellent, challenging shooter and includes great sfx and sprites.

So many excellent space shooters for the 2600, I can't narrow it down to a top 3 so I'm just going to list a few that are both excellent and I haven't noticed they've been mentioned yet.  In no particular order: Beamrider, Solaris, Spacemaster X-7, Moon Patrol, Cross Force, Moonsweeper.  Love, love, love all of these.  Plus a shout out to Draconian, my fave space shooter homebrew.

 

Edit: I see someone else mentioned Draconian while I was typing...

Beamrider is my favorite game but I'm also a big fan of Space Attack, Phoenix, Demon Attack and Galagon
