Huge archive of free fun, and easy hacks for atari 2600 game console.

“What is a Hack you might ask? In the realm of classic video games and the definition we’re using here, a hack is taking an existing game and modifying it in some fashion so that it differs from the original. Almost always this involves just changing the graphics, which is pretty easily done in many games. Some changes are done to make a game more faithful to the original (Space Invaders and Pac-Man seem to get the most attention here), others are done to give a game a different theme entirely and still other hacks, well, we haven’t got a clue. And then there are controller hacks that allow you to play games with a different control scheme, or perhaps even using a different controller entirely.

If you’d like to learn more about hacks and how you can hack Atari 2600 games yourself, please visit our Hacks Forum. If you’ve created a hack and would like it listed here, please feel free to drop us a line. We also have an entire page of 2600 TV Format Conversions.”
