DescriptionIt's time to set the Way-Back Clock to the early 80s (that's 1980s), when little plastic boxes with fake wood trim ruled the video gaming landscape. In Atari 2600 Action Pack, Activision relives its early glory with 15 of its most popular game cartridges. These aren't PC ports--this package includes a 2600 emulator and the actual cartridge ROMs.
The following games are included:
- Chopper Command
- Cosmic Commuter
- Fishing Derby
- Grand Prix
- River Raid
- Sky Jinks
- Spider Fighter
Each game includes on-line help that also provides a short history of the game and its designer.
There are no Windows screenshots for this game.

DebuggerTo activate the 6507 symbolic debugger, run the file 2600EMU.EXE. Pitfall will come up with an additional Debug item on the menu bar. You can then single step through the code, change registers, generate interrupts, examine memory, and so on. Note that many features are disabled, it only runs Pitfall, and this is only available in the original Windows 3.1 version.
General Mills CerealsA full version of this was included on the promotional CD-ROM of Asteroids distributed with boxes of General Mills cereals. (See trivia entry for Asteroids.)
Release HistoryThe first two Atari 2600 Action Packs were originally released for Windows 3.1. Then they were updated and released for Windows 95. The final release of these two Packs individually contained three versions: Windows 3.1, Windows 95, and Macintosh.
