    Arenafoot got a reaction from TrekMD in 2018 Atari VCS/2600 Homebrew List (Final list for the year)   
    Yep! Probably the biggest year ever for 2600 Homebrews! This was the master list we used for the 2018 Atari Awards and gave to the nomination committee to reduce it to a manageable size per category before the public vote.

    Arenafoot got a reaction from RickR in E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (Atari 2600)   
    The trick to E.T. was to start on Game #3 not #1. For those of us who bought the game brand new (back-in-the-day) there was a poster included inside the box that stated this......
     

     
    Good write up Kam!

    Arenafoot reacted to Atari Charles in working on a "complete" homebrew game list for the VCS/2600   
    There are many homebrews and hacks not listed on wikipedia and/or no longer available as the publisher stopped publishing them or the carts could very well have been limited runs and so on. Also there are various releases by various publishers of the same releases. There are also lab loaner(prototypes), one offs, and so on that are floating around or in people's collections. I can compile a list of what I have and email it to you when finished if that helps.

    So are you considering only true homebrews or/and hacks of existing games that have been put onto cart? Or any homebrew or/and hack made into a rom, but never released on cart? I think sticking only to games physically released on cartridge is more manageable as there are an almost infinite amount of homebrews/hack, wips, etc and would be very hard to manage a list for.
     
    Also there is release date. That can be a tricky one. Some people put when the rom is finished, others put the release date when it actually is released on cart. I think the later is more accurate. The release date I use is when the cart is released by the publisher.
     
    This site, although not updated in short while, has a lot of information, mostly accurate, but in no way is it complete. I hope this helps.

    if i ever get my hands on a 5200 (w/ working controllers) i'll probably get one of these! I'm looking at buying a "Harmony" cart for the VCS/2600 soon though..... got a review of Harmony coming soon?

    nice list if you want to add 2 more: Laserman 2k3 (great hack of keystone kappers) and Laserman 88 (its a 2600 port of a ti-99/4a game)
    I should mention that both were done by me
    I plan on redoing work on 88 (with hope to continue series on the 7800 and on the jaguar)

    There are over 500 homebrew titles for the 2600? Or 500 games in all?
