7800 Missing in Action Prototype Released
June 16, 2007
Posted by Albert Submit News | Archives

7800 Missing in Action Prototype ReleasedHaving been shown several years ago at classic gaming events, the Atari 7800 prototype Missing in Action has finally seen the light of day! AtariAge user Mitch recently acquired the only known prototype of this game to exist and has graciously shared the binary with the community so everyone may enjoy it. Missing in Action is based on the 1984 movie of the same name, featuring Chuck Norris as the protagonist. The game is a side-scrolling beat 'em up, taking place in Vietnam during the height of the Vietnam War. As Colonel James Braddock, a captured POW, your mission is to escape from an internment camp, rescue captured POWs, free the American embassy, and kill the evil drug czar. Had it been completed, Missing in Action would have been an impressive addition to the 7800 library. As it stands, this prototype is about 85% complete and is quite playable. Mitch has made cartridges of Missing in Action available, complete with label and manual. For more information on how to obtain a cartridge, please visit our Atari 7800 Forum.

Posted by Albert Submit News | Archives

Atari 2600 Mega ManSeveral Northwest Atari 2600 enthusiasts recently put together a playable Mega Man 2600 demo that was commissioned for the I Am 8-Bit art gallery being held in Los Angeles through May 12th.

Final Super Pac-Man Binaries Released
April 5, 2007
Posted by Albert Submit News | Archives

Final Super Pac-Man Binaries ReleasedThanks to the efforts of Ken Van Mersbergen (Dutchman2000 in our forums), the final version of Super Pac-Man for the Atari 5200 game console and Atari 8-bit computers is now available. Super Pac-Man is a spot-on port of the arcade game sharing the same name, but was never released commercially by Atari for either the 5200 or Atari 8-bit computers. Until now only earlier versions of these binaries have been circulating the net. Special thanks go out to Landon Dyer, who programmed the 5200/8-bit version of Super Pac-Man, for allowing the release of these binaries. You can read comprehensive 5200 and 8-bit reviews of Super Pac-Man at AtariProtos.com. You can download the binaries from our Prototypes Forum.
