What follows is the official finalized game list for the retail version of the 2017 release of the Atari Flashback 8 Gold: Activision Edition, which will join the other AtGames products at retailers everywhere later this month after having a period of exclusive availability at Walmart.com. The all-new Atari Flashback 8 Gold: Activision Edition features 130 built-in games, including marquee Activision and Imagic classics. These games include legends like Activision’s Pitfall!, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary, and Imagic’s legendary shooter, Demon Attack, as well as many other all-time Atari 2600 classics like Centipede™, Chopper Command™, Enduro™, and River Raid™. Two high performance 2.4ghz wireless controllers, styled after the Atari 2600 originals, are included, as well as two legacy controller ports for optional wired joysticks or paddle controllers. Other features for the Atari Flashback 8 Gold: Activision Edition include 720p HDMI output, scan line filtering, and a save/pause/rewind feature for every game.
Here’s the list:
Finally, as a nice addition to this excellent hardware release, I had the pleasure to work on an official paperback book for Prima Games called, Atari Flashback: The Essential Companion. While it contains plenty of information on the latest AtGames Atari Flashback products, it’s actually a great general Atari 2600 resource as well, acting as a type of missing manual for over 65 Atari games. Of course, there is a lot more to this highly visual book, including Tips & Tricks and Fun Facts. It’s priced at just $19.99, which includes a mobile-friendly eGuide version for a second-screen experience.
