Top 10 Atari 2600 Games

There are many Atari 2600 games that I hold near and dear from my childhood. This is my top 10 best Atari 2600 games relevant to my experience growing up. I plan to make this a 4 part series and continue with the top 20 (11-20), worst 10, or most disappointing, and best Atari games I found as an adult (recent years). 

Circus Convoy

by Audacity Games

Wow. Never would I have thought the day would come when one of the original co-founders of Activision and developer of Pitfall, David Crane, would team up with Keystone Kapers creator, Garry Kitchen to put out a BRAND NEW, in-the-box, game for the Atari 2600.

My Custom Home Arcade

Fully Alexa Enabled, Blacklight Carpet, Retrogames, and Arcade1up’s

Completely voice automated custom home arcade complete with blacklight carpet, neon lights, Arcade 1up’s, and tons of retro gaming stuff. Everything can individually be controlled by Alexa or all at once.


And the first video game easter egg

Adventure for the Atari 2600 contains the first video game easter egg. This video shows the gameplay with WITH commentary, I have an alternate “no commentary version”. This takes you through completing the game on level 2 and shows you the now infamous easter egg, the black or gray dot and secret room, mentioned in Ready Player One. All in just under 10 minutes.

See how easy it is to upgrade and replace the Arcade1Up 12-in1 Deluxe (Centipede and Asteroids) spinner and trackball for MUCH improved gameplay. Seriously, SUPER easy. These products also work with the Arcade1Up Centipede and Astroids unit.
