If you'd like a boxed copy of Escape from the Castle, please select "Box Upgrade: Yes" at the top of the page before adding Escape from the Castle to your cart. Our boxes are professionally printed and include a box insert to hold your Escape from the Castle cartridge in place. We want you to play our games, so we have not sealed or shrinkwrapped the boxes in any way, allowing you easy access to the game cartridge and manual.

These boxes are the same size as boxes Atari produced for their games "back in the day". They look great sitting on a shelf with your other boxed homebrew games, or alongside games from the classic Atari 2600 library. We only have a limited number of boxes for each game, and there is no guarantee they will become available again once our supplies are exhausted.
