Five Classic Games for The Atari 7800
The Atari 7800 was never the most popular of home video game systems, but that’s a shame because it had solid graphics for the 1980s and had a number of superb games worth playing regularly. Here are five of my favorite games for the Atari 7800 home video game system.
This game originally came out for home computers in the early-to-mid 1980s, including such systems as the TRS-80. Apparently this game was a big enough of a hit that it got ported to the Atari 7800 system. If you like playing video basketball with friends, this is the game for you.
For near-perfect Galaga arcade action, the Atari 7800 version of this historic arcade pretty much comes through. It’s not exactly like the arcade version, but it’s darn close. Which means it’s a lot of fun to play.
This arcade classic was just about as perfect as a port can be. The Atari 7800 really shines with Ms. Pac-Man, keeping the colors and gameplay quite close to the arcade version of this game. If you loved Ms. Pac-Man at the arcade, you’ll love Ms. Pac-Man on the 7800. But be prepared for a slightly faster game!
There isn’t a better home version of this arcade classic for any of the older gaming consoles. I dare anyone to prove me wrong on this!
Yes, another basketball game! But this one is different from most. Not only can you play one-on-one or two-on-two, but you can also get into fist fights right there on the court. Exciting? Uh, yeah!
