Favorite space 2600 game

Recommended Posts

Hands down megamania

 

For homebrews I really like the 2600 version of Thrust

 

Earth Dies Screaming gets an honorable mention for having the raddest name ever

Yes!  This along with Missile Command TB and Mondo Pong were my first AA Store purchases.

I think Thrust was my first game too, since its been almost 20 years now I guess I have some "nostalgia" for it...kinda weird to nostalgia for a homebrew now that I think about it....damn, I better start up that retirement fund soon 😄

I purchased a CIB foot pedal to go with my Thrust+ Platinum CIB.  Then, years later, I picked up one of the remaining Thrust+ Combat packs.

Thats the one I had (combat pack) I traded a Last Hope for the neo Geo for it with AA member @FABombjoy way back because I didn't want to pay the expensive shipping from Europe. I don't even want to know what that neo geo game is worth now, back then it was around 75 bucks...

The 2600 has a lot of great space themed games!

Space Invaders. A friend had Star Ship, and I used to be terrified when objects would come up to the screen, so much to the point where I had to ask him not to play that game whenever I came over. I also used to like Galaxian and The Earth Dies Screaming. And Star Wars, of course.

Defender, Space Invaders, Star Ship immediately come to mind, so I guess those are my tops. Others include:

 

Galaxian

Asteroids

Super Breakout (not usually thought of as a "space game" but the artwork and backstory say otherwise)

GORF

Alien

Subterranea

Space Jockey

Defender II

Secret Quest

Solaris

Starmaster

Astroblast

Stellar Track

Starmaster

Stargunner

Warplock
