Touchdown Challenge v2 (A2600 Game)

Atarius Maximus makes Atari VCS users happy once again with his new game Touchdown Challenge. The object is to run past the defenders and score a touchdown. The pattern changes when you score. Most of the players run slowly down the field, but there is one who will relentlessly chase you. If you get tackled, the score resets. It needs a lot of polish but is very playable and kind of fun.

Palomino (10-05-2014) (Atari 2600 Game)

Palomino is a puzzle game for Atari 2600 by Seemo.

The playfield is continuously scanned by a vertical beam, that periodically deposits cells in the playfield. The player has to arrange these cells to form the pattern shown on the top of the screen. To form the patterns, the player controls a cursor that can pick up and release the cells on the playfield. When the vertical beam meets a pattern, it removes the cells that form the pattern from the playfield, and the player scores points. Each pattern has to be composed eight times before the timer, represented by the bar on the top left of the screen, expires.

In the recent update a few bugs were fixed and minor improvements were done. Check the release thread for full details.

Snappy (15-01-2012) (A2600 Game)

The goal in Snappy by Sebastian Mihai is to get as many men across Snappy’s pit as possible. Each game starts with ten men, and each of them gets parachuted at a random spot, so you have to time your jumps well. Only one button is used – fire. It will start a new game when on the menu screen, and it will cause a man to start running, trying to make it across the pit.

Flappy v6 (A2600 Game)

Seriously… is there any reason the Atari VCS should be not having a Flappy Bird style game? Oh wait… thanks to iesposta there is actually a game very similar to it named Flappy.

Point Zero (23-01-2014) (A2600 Game)

There is not only a Michael Knight in TV, but also in Atari VCS development scene. If you are in the mood for a little shooter you may try Point Zero. The ultimate goal of this game is to get a score of zero!

Use the joystick to move around and pressing fire when moving increases your speed. Press fire while still to shoot your missiles and blow up bad guys. Not everything is a bad guy there are also power ups to obtain. Every thousand points you remove from the score a boss like ship will appear… Don’t get hit by its missiles!
