Atari 7800 Choplifter! Glitch


Recommended Posts


(I also shared this on my No Swear Gamer thread, but I'm sure not everyone follows it)

Did you know that certain copies of Choplifter will glitch out on certain 7800 systems?

It seems to only be 1987 copies on certain systems. I haven't been able to try a 1988 copy, but from what I understand, they all play fine.

You can see the results above. By the way, the same cartridge played perfectly on a second 7800 I own.

Well, it's one of my all time favorite games on the Atari 8-bit.  Loved that the game is almost the same on C64 and Apple II as well.  I had some epic battles against friends in college with that game. 


So here comes the 7800 version, with updated graphics.  LOVE IT.  Love me some backboard breaking, shot swatting, 360 dunking action.  You can do so much with just one button.  Great game.
