AtariAge user Ken "kenfused" Siders has ported the popular arcade game Burgertime to the Atari 8-bit computers, giving it the name Beef Drop. Burgertime was ported to many home game consoles and computer systems, including the Intellivision, ColecoVision, Atari 2600, Nintendo Entertainment System, but a faithful port has never found its way to Atari 8-bit computers before now. While a disk-based version of Burgertime was released for the Atari 8-bit computers, this version has been written from scratch to be more accurate to the arcade version than the older 8-bit port.
This new version of Burgertime began life as an April Fool's joke in our Atari 5200 Forum and quickly turned into a real homebrew development effort! Originally released for the Atari 5200, Ken Siders updated the game to work with Atari 8-bit computers.
We held a Beef Drop Label Contest to design an original label for Beef Drop, and the contest was won by Henry Lee. Henry's label design graces the label and manual, with additional artwork featured inside the manual. Beef Drop includes the cartridge and 12-page, full-color manual. Beef Drop is also available for the Atari 5200.
Choose Cartridge Style
You can purchase Beef Drop in one of two cartridge styles: a translucent charcoal color or an opaque light gray color. Both are pictured below. You can choose which style you prefer at the top of the page. There is no price difference between the two styles. If you do not make a selection, you will receive the translucent charcoal cartridge shell by default.
Beef Drop requires an Atari 8-bit Computer with 32K of RAM. Beef Drop includes game cartridge and full-color, 12-page manual.
