We all know Activision's 2600 games, but how about their other 8-bit pre-crash titles? I'm thinking of games like Zenji, Park Patrol, Pastfinder, Zone Ranger, and Toy Bizarre. Some of these ended up being made for the 5200 or Colecovision, but some like Toy Bizarre and Pastfinder ended up being computer exclusives. Some of these are only OKayish (Zone Ranger, Park Patrol), but some like Zenji are A+, even though they don't get the hype their 2600 games do. Does anyone have any favorites?

 

Also, I got this package in the mail today:

My knowledge of pic games of that time is extremely limited. 2600 was my only experience back then. Are these titles available in a best of series or bundle? The entire 80's Activision games library could probably fit on a CD rom or two.

I enjoyed your YouTube review of Zenji :emoji-E420:  I had never played it before.
