|The following games have been converted from one TV format to another. This has been done so you can enjoy these games on a real Atari 2600 in the case where a game might have been released in a country other than your own. While NTSC games typically work fine in PAL systems, the opposite is not true. If you try to play a PAL game on an NTSC television, you are usually presented with a rolling display.
These conversions have been crafted by 2600 programmers Thomas Jentzsch (author of Jammed and Thrust) and Fabrizio Zavagli (author of Space Treat). If there's a game you'd like to see converted from one TV format to another, you can post a message to our Atari 2600 Forum with your request and odds are good someone will tackle it.
To download one of these conversions, click on the ROM icon for the game you are interested in playing. You can learn more about the various TV standards on our TV Format Key Explained page.
