Atari Announces the Atari 7800 – Today in History – May 21st, 1984

We can sit here all day and play the “what if” game, especially when it comes to Atari and their antics throughout gaming history.  For one, their Atari 7800 console was announced today, in 1984 but wasn’t released till sometime in 1986.  How might things have been different had Atari launched, and pushed, the 7800 […]

Wyvern Tales to Bring Final Fantasy Style RPG Action to Atari Lynx

The Atari Lynx was not exactly a barn burner with the fans.  Those that purchased it usually had a great time with it, me I always wanted one mainly for that Dracula game but not much else.  There have been some homebrew releases over the years, mostly thanks to Songbird Productions who has finished many […]

Black Lamp Comes to the Atari Jaguar Thanks to Homebrew Developer

Black Lamp is an action platform title that was released on the Atari ST, Commodore Amiga, Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum computers back in the late 80’s.  The story of Black Lamp will sound familiar to anyone that has watched many fantasy movies, or played The Horde (a more recent adventure title).  Black Lamp is […]

Llamasoft’s TxK is Now Cancelled Pending Legal Action

Tempest was a classic arcade title that polarized gamers.  You either liked it or did not get it.  There really was no in between on this game.  The man behind it, Jeff Minter, also handled the amazing Atari Jaguar port called Tempest 2000, and the game TxK for Llamasoft.  TxK hit the Playstation Vita last […]

Balloon Girl Shows Flappy Bird Clones How It’s Done on Atari 2600

Okay, it is no secret that Flappy Bird has gotten quite long in the tooth with gamers, though for some reason those articles are well read.  So, knowing that the readers are fine with more Flappy Bird I decided it might be worth covering this new, upcoming, title for the Atari 2600 called Balloon Girl.  […]

Bandit Gaming- Adventure Island Being Ported to Atari 2600 as Expedition Island

Atari is in the news a fair bit lately, from the recently discovered Alien vs Predator for Atari Lynx prototype (the third such version) to the recently released/announced Atari Jaguar games.  Tack on another title to the growing list of new Atari games, this time it is Adventure Island getting ported to the Atari 2600.  […]

Prototype: New Version of Alien vs Predator Found for Atari Lynx

This is interesting news to say the least.  The Atari Lynx was Atari’s, only, hand held device to be released and, depending on who you ask, it was a horrible failure for the company.  We did see some great games for it though, games that, honestly, should have done better and could have had Atari […]

Google’s DeepMind Artificial Intelligence Learns Retro Games, Beats Man Human High Scores without Taking Bathroom Break

The jokes about Google probably being “Skynet” of Terminator fame have been around for years.  The problem with those jokes is, as time marches on, it seems that they are getting less and less funny.  Not because we have heard them a few thousand times each, but because of how scary Google’s artificial intelligence software […]

New Game: Alien Pinball Coming to the Atari 2600

Pinball.  A staple in most arcades and a genre that is quite misunderstood by most of the, dying, arcade going public.  There is more to pinball than what players see as they pass by on their quest to put quarters into the latest one on one fighting game.  There is finesse, strategy and technique mixed […]
