Revenge of the License: 2600 Trilogy of Terror!

Whassup all my retro gamer bro-dawgs? It’s October, in case you hadn’t noticed, and round these parts, October mandates that gamers start rounding up the carts and discs with a decidedly creepier theme to them. We at Retro Gaming Magazine are happy to admit we’re not immune to this infectious desire to splatter some blocky […]

Portland Retro Gaming Expo to Debut Clyde’s Revenge for Atari 2600

Another title that is going to be debuted at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo is Clyde’s Revenge for the Atari 2600.  This is another limited release by Good Deal Games and Michael Thomasson, GDG owner/founder.  What is unique about Clyde’s Revenge is, well, you are taking control of the bad guy, specifically the red ghost […]


Portland Retro Gaming Expo to Debut The Realm of No! A Text Adventure for Atari 2600

It is well known that the Atari 2600 was strictly a gaming console, there were no accessories like a full keyboard or disk drive released for it.  That is not stopping Michael Thomasson and his company, Good Deal Games, from releasing a full text based adventure title on Atari’s classic console.  Fans of Choose Your […]


The 2nd Great Video Game Crash and how it could Be Stopped

The video game industry had a crash in 1983/1984 that nearly ended our favorite pastime for good.  During this period there were many gaming consoles available, lots of games and many developers that were popping up out of nowhere and just as quickly disappearing.  It was a horrific time for fans of gaming that lived […]


Pac-Man 2 Homebrew Released for Atari 2600

Before you get to thinking this is a port of Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures from the 16-bit platforms, calm down.  It is not.  This is a hack of the original Pac-Man with new levels and improved all around over what Atari forced on us back in the day.  Pac-Man 2 is hard, you are […]


Near Arcade Perfect Port of Galaxian Released for Atari 2600

Homebrew developers are a unique lot, they do things that the professionals claim is impossible.  Homebrewers also do it without official development kits, most of the time, and are at a severe disadvantage compared to the professionals as far as standard education on how the hardware works.  That lack of education just may be what […]


New Version of Mario Bros Coming to Atari 2600, Already Obliterates Official Version

Man, the guys over on the Atari Age forums sure do keep themselves busy with creating new and improved versions of classic games.  Specifically classics on the Atari 2600 that didn’t exactly receive a stellar port in the first place.  Previously I looked at another improved port in the form of Pac-Man 8K Edition, also […]


Pac-Man on Atari 2600 Receives Much Improved Version by Homebrew Developer

The original Pac-Man for the Atari 2600 was a crappy game, no doubt about it.  Atari probably knew very well that they shouldn’t have released it like it was but they did anyhow.  Call it greed, call it stupidity, call it whatever you want.  The point is, it was a crap game.  Leave it to […]


9 Times Developers Screwed the Console Manufacturers

It has not always been all happy and go lucky days in video games.  No, back in the day we had some real controversial things going on, mostly behind the scenes but quite a few made it to the fanbase (such as the Tengen situation).  There are poop monsters shooting a questionable brown projectile at […]


Atari 2600 Q*Bert Improved to be More like Arcade Version

The Atari 2600 sure did try to be the arcade in your home, and for a while it was.  The problem is, as time went on things improved in the arcade such as the hardware and challenge provided to the gamer.  Gamers wanted more challenge, more colors, more sounds and the poor Atari 2600 just […]
