Universal Gamex Corporation

Overview

Universal Gamex Corp. (later known as Gameworld) was a video game publisher and distributor based in Los Angeles, California. Their only original release was X-Man, an adult-themed maze game for the Atari 2600, which they released in 1983. The game apparently had very little distribution and is one of the rarest 2600 games to find today. Gamex used Spectravideo cart shells and PCBs to make the X-Man cartridges, and they may have had a relationship with that company. Gamex reportedly had additional adult-themed titles in development, but these would never see the light of day.

Gamex later changed their name to Gameworld after purchasing the entire back catalog of Data Age games after that company folded. The games were then reissued in Europe under the Gameworld brand at discount prices. There reportedly had been plans to reissue them in the U.S. as well, but this never happened.

Like many other companies, Gamex/Gameworld apparently folded during the video game crash of 1983-84. Little else is known about the company.
