The Watchtower v1.03 (A2600 Game)

“You’re on guard duty!”, your commanding officer barks at you. Since your chopper was shot down weeks ago, your squad’s been trapped in these woods. You’ve been able to fashion a hut and a small watchtower in case the enemy becomes aware of your whereabouts. As you climb to the top of the watchtower, you hear what sounds like a large helicopter taking off in the distance. You signal for your squadmates to start a fire. Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst, the fire is started. The pilot sees the smoke and hovers down towards you. As it draws near, you notice the symbol emblazoned on the helicopter. It’s the enemy! You draw your rifle as a paratrooper leaps out of the massive aircraft above…

Flip Out (02-06-2009) (A2600 Game)

You’re the zookeeper, a crazed bear has jumped into the penguin tank and is totally flipping out. You’re chasing him down with a tranquilizer gun. When we say flipping out, the bear is flipping chunks of ice and making large holes to fall into. You’ve got to get the bear while dodging the holes in the ice.. To make matters worse, the tranquilzer doesn’t work quickly even once you’ve scored a hit, it takes a while for the tranquilzer to kick in, then it’s up to you just to keep from getting killed.

If that’s not enough, a monkey, an apparent friend of Mr. Bear, has decided to fling poo your way, in the higher levels.

Good Luck!

Aquarium (Build 3) (A2600 Game)

atari2600land is working on another new game. Aquarium is going to be a Tamagotchi style game, but you’ve to take care of your fish.

Release notes:

Added FEED option. Another idea for an option is GAME, and I use the term “game” loosely. If you select this, a cursor on the screen appears and as you move it, Fred will follow it. This hasn’t been programmed in yet.
