Atari 2600 Games of Note

This list is an offshoot of Video Games of Note which is dedicated to games for that 6502-based home system, the Atari 2600 VCS.

Haunted House


Good use of invisibility.



Notable for at least two things: one, it was an attempt to "graphicalize" a text adventure; that is, the author wanted to translate Colossal Cave to a graphical interface. And two, apparently it is the first game containing an Easter Egg (or at least, the first to popularize this notion.)

Yars' Revenge


Balanced gameplay.
