|It all started a long time ago with the Atari 2600 game Adventure, one of the
first (if not the first!) game to contain an Easter
Egg. By placing a certain object in a certain place in the game, the programmer's
Robinett, is revealed on the screen. These days we come to expect games
to have Easter Eggs and many people are disappointed when games ship without
them. In addition to Easter Eggs, many games have cheat codes that might unlock
secret levels, change the game difficulty, make you invincible, and so forth.
This list shows all the Tips, Cheats, and Easter Eggs we've put into the AtariAge
database. For the 2600 we have not including tips that require frying
the system, since those results are usually unpredictable and difficult to reproduce.
