Atari Labels Art - 2600 by Atariboy2600 Atari Labels Art - 2600 by Atariboy2600
There are some games that you witch it had came out on your fave consoles, some that are in the release dates like COMING SOON games, and some that was Under Development but never was finish in time. Well thanks to a HUGE Atari Fan Bace at I can get to play the games I always love to see on my Atari consoles and here's how and why. Many games that are Un-Release Games or Prototypes Games, Hacks and Homebrew Games.

Un-Release or Prototype Games:
Many games that was edar done or under development but have not been released. Games are often not released for many reasons (even if they are 100% complete in some cases), either due to the game not being of high enough quality, or because of doubts about whether the game will make enough money. A lot of the time, these games end up fading away and never being seen, but sometimes they end up being released many years later, which has been the case with Atari games.

Hacks Games:
A hack is an existing game that has somehow been modifed in terms of graphics, colors, sounds, and/or gameplay.

Homebrew Games:
The term homebrew is used to refer to a game developed in the "modern era" (post-1991, the last year the 2600 or games for it were produced by Atari) by a hobbyist or team of hobbyists. With the advent of cross-assemblers, emulators, and computers fast and powerful enough to emulate a 2600, it became possible for anyone with knowledge of 6502 assembly language and a handful of other tools to develop a game. Some of the hobbyists create their own boards for inside the cartridges while others make use of their services. These homebrew artists are creative and talented, making games that rival the classic era work in quality and fun.

And now that you know what I mean, Inot only Im download these games but also making my own cartridges and then upload the ROM files on a REAL Atari carts and play them on a real consoles. And also I need to make Labels for the games that was edar hiome made or proto games. Here's the list of games I downloaded and the label carts I made for them from edar real images from poster books or mags and or 100%T hand drawn.

Here's some of the label art I done plus a screen shots of REAL games that are made from other programers for Atari 2600 Games:

The Lord Of The Rings - (Prototype) - Image Used: Took an old Lord Of The Rings Book cover image for label art.
Prince Of Persia - (Homebrew) - Image Used: Scan an old PC game box of Prince Of Persia.
Pac-Man - (Hack) - Image Used: Used a old Atari 5200 label image and past it on the 2600 cart.
The A-Team - (Prototype) - Image Used: Used an old A-Team coloring book cover.

They look awesome!
I would have loved to play a remake of Pacman on my 2600.
Although I wasnt around to see the rise and fall of some of the games on the 2600, I just decided to go buy the games for the 2600 that I wanted to play.
Even though I wasnt around in the 80's, just playing the Atari games made me feel like I was transported to the 80's.
It felt awesome.

The homebrew version of 2600 Pac-Man looks a HELL OF A LOT better than the actual commercial product that was released in the early 1980s.
