Atari 7800 Library | Looking at all 58 Games



What was once a one-off is now a series! Last time we looked at the Atari 5200’s library of video games. Now it’s time to pay the Atari 7800 a visit!

To those who think I said the Atari 7800 is the “worst video game console”, which I didn’t:

  1. Oh, Dark Chambers isn't a rip-off of Gauntlet, Gauntlet actually ripped it off, It's a remake of a game called Dandy, which Gauntlet is an all in out clone of ( It's called Dandy as it was their way of wanting to make a Dungeons and dragons game, but without the license (Dandy – D n' D)).

    Anyhoo, Dark Chambers is a remake of Dandy, which ironically Atari Games sued them for.

  2. The bottom screen of Xenophobe is supposed to be for the second player. It's also loads better than the NES port (same for Ikari Warriors, which for some bizarre reason was on the 2600 too)

  3. My wife had one of those from when it was brand new. We still have it. It's not a terrible system, the 7800. But still not a great machine compared to the 16 bit pcs that were available from both Commodore and Atari at the time!

  4. Food Fight is worth the price of admission! It’s use of ammo and cpu players who are using the same ammo is unique. Also it’s a superset of the 2600! Win win

  5. Karateka is amazing on the Atari 8 bit computers where you can use the keys to control your kicks and punches. But on the 7800 it's almost impossible to play with the controller.

  6. Shame on you for saying such bullshit on karateka, it's excellent, i'ts not a masterpiece because there's prince of persia

  7. You have so little info you shouldn't do make this in the first place. Most notably, you said the 7800 was released three years after NES. It was released one year before it.

  8. To say that the 7800 coming out in 1986 was 3 years after the NES is a bit of a mis-quote. Indeed the NES was released in 1983 but that was in Japan. It was not released in North America until 1985 which is where the 7800's major market was.

  9. "I doubt that you know of anyone who actually owned one of these"

    … I clicked on this video because I owned one of these though?

  10. Sadly the 7800 was released by a tiny cheap company and came out 2-4 years before it should have. And was mostly using the cheapest carts they could which is why everything more or less looks on par with the Famicom 1983 titles, or a bit below. Add in how most games were hastily put together arcade or home computer ports and we have a bad time when there was no reason for it.

  11. the patched version of impossible mission is not a homebrew, it's the official Pal version. and speaking of pal, the Pal version of the 7800 has 2 major differences: first, asteroids is built in to the console (the UK and especially scotland are generally stariotyped as being financially responsible for a reason) and the ontroler included with the 7800 was completely redesigned to resemble the nes controler instead of the 2600, in the sense that the pal controler has an NES style directional pad instead of the joystick found on the US version.

  12. Without karateka we would not have gotten Prince of Persia though. The same guy who made that game was the originator of the Prince of Persia franchise

  13. 28:43 – It's not that you didn't notice the hole, it's that the hole wasn't there! This game is full of cheap deaths, including vanishing platforms over instant-death pits. Winning requires memorising all the traps so you can avoid them. It's almost a kaizo game!

  14. I did know someone with a 7800 while they were new. I had one several years later. I knew one person with a 5200 but it was broken. The NES may have been out but nobody here in Mississippi had even heard of the NES when the 7800 came out for at least a year or so.

  15. You should really try Tower Toppler on a CRT or with CRT emulation. You should be able to read the platforms much more clearly, avoiding the literall pitfall you had, also it's less tiring to look at. The brick wall can look almost solid in some CRTs.

  16. Nintendo came out in late 85 in New York City early 86 everywhere else. The Japanese version the famicom came out in 83

  17. Nes was not released in North America till October 1985. That would be around 1 year before the release of the 7800.

  18. Nintendo may have launched in the US in '85, but I never knew anyone who had one until about '88….just before the launch of Super Nintendo. On the other hand, I never knew ANYONE who had an Atari 5200 or 7800. I guess we were all content with our 2600s…. getting another system was just too expensive.

  19. commando on the 7800 also has the extra sound chip (the same one as ballblazer in fact), so in your oppinion the sound might be it's greatest strength. also all my research points to the test launch being in 1984 in calefornya, thus sandwitching it between the Japanese and Ammerican releases of the nes/famicom and putting it at the same year as the Advanced video system (the prototype US design for the nes).

  20. We had one of these when I was a kid instead of a NES. I had to save enough money until I could pay for half the NES before we got one. Only took three or four years. Still, there were some good games on the 7800: Joust, Desert Falcon, as well as all the 2600 games.

  21. Im a few months late, but the screen in Xenophobe is that way since on the arcade it was possible to be played with 3 players and it was one of the earliest instances of split screen. i dont get the point of doing that on the ports though.
