Tips, Cheats, and Easter Eggs

It all started a long time ago with the Atari 2600 game Adventure, one of the first (if not the first!) game to contain an Easter Egg. By placing a certain object in a certain place in the game, the programmer's name, Warren Robinett, is revealed on the screen. These days we come to expect games to have Easter Eggs and many people are disappointed when games ship without them. In addition to Easter Eggs, many games have cheat codes that might unlock secret levels, change the game difficulty, make you invincible, and so forth.

This list shows all the Tips, Cheats, and Easter Eggs we've put into the AtariAge database. For the 2600 we have not including tips that require frying the system, since those results are usually unpredictable and difficult to reproduce. If you have any additions you'd like to submit to us, please drop us a line!
