Secret Quest is one of the best Action/Adventure games on the system. It was released in 1989 as one of the last major releases for the Atari 2600. Secret Quest plays like an early Nintendo NES game, and is like Atari’s answer to The Legend of Zelda and Phantasy Star. Growing up as a 7800 gamer, Secret Quest became one of my favorite 2600 games to play. As you navigate the maze-like levels, you kill enemies with what appears to be a lightsaber, stock up on energy and oxygen, collect codes that allow you to set a time bomb and then transport off a space station before it’s destroyed. A photo of Nolan Bushnell is on the box cover and cartridge label. Secret Quest was developed by Nolan Bushnell's company Axlon and programmed by Steve DeFrisco. I hope all of you have a good time, and remember this is for "nerd cred" and meant to be fun for all! I encourage you to share your strategies and experiences with all of us! You have until 11:59 pm PST February 14th, 2016 to complete this challenge and successfully submit your score. The ROM is readily available online, and the Instruction Book is provided for you below.
