Atari XP collection – never-released and rare Atari games from the 1970s and 1980s

Atari XP are releasing some actual cartridges for games that were never actually released back in 1970’s / 80’s.

They describe it as “Never-before released Atari® 2600 game cartridges. Available for the first time”. The games are described as:

Games that were completed but never received an official release, or were only released in very limited quantities. 

Games for which physical media has become extremely rare, and therefore hard to find.

A wide variety of classic games that would benefit from small improvements to graphic rendering on modern devices and the smoothness and accuracy of controls. These games will be carefully ‘reconditioned’ and then re-released.

The first three games they are releasing are “Yars’ Return“, “Saboteur” and “Aquaventure“.

Unfortunately they are only for sale in the United States at the moment but hopefully will become available elsewhere in future. But it’s pretty cool that I could possibly buy new cartridges for my own Atari 2600 console! :)
