After a seven year hiatus, the AtariAge Holiday Greeting Cart returns! We're proud to introduce Stay Frosty 2 as the 2014 AtariAge Holiday Cart. Stay Frosty 2 is arguably the most advanced platform game to ever grace the Atari 2600, taking advantage of our Melody cartridge platform to push the Atari 2600 to its limits. Stay Frosty 2 is the sequel to Stay Frosty, which appeared in Stella's Stocking, the 2007 AtariAge Holiday Cart. Stay Frosty 2 features 32 unique levels (and a total of 128 levels), new enemies and dangers, new power-ups, and many surprises!
In addition to Stay Frosty 2, we have a SECOND holiday-themed game this year! We're also introducing The Byte Before Christmas, a collection of four Christmas-themed games in one cartridge: Santa's Scabs, Christmas Adventure, Bell Hopper, and Naughty List. Do you have what it takes to save Christmas?
Also in the new lineup is THREE·S, an Atari 2600 conversion of the popular Threes! mobile puzzle game, written by veteran Atari 2600 programmer Thomas Jentzsch. THREE·S is an addictive tile-based puzzle game, and a must have on the 2600 if you enjoy games of this nature! The iOS version of THREES was just awarded Apple's 2014 Game of the Year.
For Atari 7800 fans, we have two new games: K.C. Munchkin, a port of the Odyssey 2 game that resulted in a lawsuit against Magnavox by Atari, and Astro Blaster, a port of the arcade game of the same name. Both of these new titles were programmed by Bob DeCreszenzo, who has a remarkable track record in producing games on the 7800.
The AtariVox+ Speech Synthesizer for the Atari 2600/7800 and Vectrex is now available in the AtariAge Store! The AtariVox+ is a self-contained speech/music synthesizer and memory card for the Atari 2600 and 7800, Vectrex, and other video game consoles with compatible controller ports.
The heart of the unit is the SpeakJet--an amazing chip with phonetic speech, preset sounds and a five channel music synthesizer. All of these are controlled by the console via a serial interface emulated through the driver software. Similar to chips used in 80s speech synthesizers but with extended capabilities, the speech retains a nice retro quality, making it a perfect partner for classic consoles.
Also onboard the AtariVox+ is 32K of non-volatile memory which can be used as a memory card. The flash memory will retain data without power for 200+ years. An allocation scheme has been devised so that no file is ever overwritten, allowing many different games to store data on just one unit.
A team of four agents, each a specialist in one of the four elements - water, fire, air and earth - have been miniaturized to microscopic size in order to investigate a mysterious new virus that appears to be of alien origin. The virus mutates rapidly, mimicking each of the four elements. But something went horribly wrong, and contact with the team was lost. Now the virus threatens to grow out-of-control.
You are the last hope to stop it. Having been miniaturized yourself, you now board the Omicron - a microscopic vessel designed specifically to counter the alien virus and stop it from spreading. Can you battle your way through each iteration of the virus and destroy the threat?
If you thought flying to nowhere was hard...now they've placed perilous pipes in your path! In Flappy, your challenge is to attend to your avian ally at an altitude avoiding alloy aerial aqueducts. How far will you fare?
Flappy is an Atari 2600 take on the popular (and somewhat infamous at this point) Flappy Bird game that first appeared on the iPhone. Like its iOS brethren, Flappy is a fairly simple game. Pressing the joystick button causes your avian friend to flap, and the more you flap, the higher you climb. Your primary goal (and, really, your only goal) is to line up your bird so it passes through the oncoming pipes. If you run into a pipe, it's game over!How high can you score? And will you play "just one more time" to see if you can beat your previous best??
While many classic gamers enjoy buying boxed copies of homebrew games when available, others don't care about the boxes and simply want to play homebrew games in cartridge form on their console. To that end, we've added "manual/cart" versions of several homebrews released in 2013 to the store. These copies are $20 less than their boxed equivalent, so if you've been holding off on some of these games because you didn't wan't to pay for a box, now's your chance to pick them up!
Here's a list of the games you can now buy without a box:
You can now own the boxed version of Ebivision's Power Off!, including the box, eight-page color manual, and cartridge for only $25!
Robots took control of the system. Deactivate all the energy pills to switch off the computer!
You play the role of Brian Mareck, who must deactivate a computer that has run amuck! This new super computer, designed by your father, was created to help mankind with its instantaneous computing abilities. But something went catastrophically wrong when your father switched the machine on and now you must run through level after level of the giant laboratory and deactivate all the energy pills before it's too late! While doing this, you must avoid the robots, who have been programmed by the computer to protect it at all costs!

One day Blinky finds himself at the bottom of a dark dungeon and there's only one way out... up!
Blinky Goes Up is an original platform game for the Atari 2600 by Jan Hermanns. Your goal is to ascend through each level in this vertical scrolling platformer, collecting every gold nugget along the way. You'll receive an extra life for every four told nuggets you collect. And you may need them, as there are villains working to block your path: Tooby, Bolly, and Shooty. To compound matters, if you fall or jump from a platform and don't land on another, you'll lose a life!
Armor Attack II is a continuation of the exciting and addicting arcade game made by Cinematronics in 1980. Like the original, this is a one or two player battle-action game where your jeeps (equipped with rocket launchers) defend war torn landscapes with 16 different terrains that are randomly chosen at the beginning of each level.
The play field is a top view of cities with road and building areas defined. Players (jeeps) and enemies (tanks) can only maneuver on the roads, however the enemy helicopter can go over buildings and roads. No shots by anything can go through buildings, as they are only valid over road areas. Debris left by tanks is sometimes destructive, so make sure to shoot them from a safe distance!
The object is to accumulate the maximum number of points possible. In a two player game, both players play simultaneously and neither player can shoot the other. The player(s) must avoid being shot or run over by the enemy tanks, and avoid being shot by the helicopter. If a player shoots a helicopter, the bonus level is incremented by 10 points. When the fifth helicopter is destroyed an extra jeep is awarded to the player who shot the helicopter the fifth time. (Bonus Levels: +10, +20, +30, +40, extra jeep and reset to zero). The player's turn is over when he/she gets shot by the tank or helicopter. In a two player game, the level does not reset and the player does not return (if he/she has any lives left) until both players are shot.
Crazy Otto was developed as an enhancement kit for Pac-man cabinets by General Computer Corporation (GCC). GCC also created an upgrade kit for Missile Command titled Super Missile Command, for which they were sued by Atari, but the suit was dropped and the two companies entered into a business arrangement. GCC went on to develop the arcade games Fight and Quantum for Atari, as well as games for the Atari 2600, 5200 and 7800 game consoles.
As a drop-in upgrade for Pac-Man, Crazy Otto brought many changes to the game, although basic gameplay remained the same. Most notable is the main character (Crazy Otto) had legs and blue eyes. The monsters also have feet, as well as animated antennae. Other changes included new mazes, music, sound effects, and bonus fruit. Otto and his female counterpart were featured in three new intermissions, the last of which shows the arrival of baby Crazy Otto, "Junior".
Crazy Otto now lives on the Atari 7800, thanks to the efforts of Atari 7800 developr Robert DeCrescenzo
"Flying through space is no picnic. Commanding an intergalactic space vessel isn't all plaid blankets and wicker baskets. All manner of peculiar happenings might ruin one's day. Take planets for instance. They're big. Really big. Often rather solid, too. For these reasons alone, it's usually advisable not to involve yourself in any sort of altercation with one, particularly when travelling through hyperspace.
This was now something Space Corps Commander Gwyn Williams knew only too well, as, from his vantage point high in the upper atmosphere, he observed the fragments of his vessel scattered over the surface of this particular example of Big Solid Planet. Sliced into three sections with the ship's cargo falling from orbit all around him, he wondered how this day might possibly get any worse... Ah! Of course! An onslaught of deadly rocks - simply perfect!"

Full Circle: Rocketeer is a new 50/60 fps arcade shooter for the Atari Jaguar console, featuring 16 unique levels over 4 worlds. Full Circle: Rocketeer utilizes Reboot's Raptor Engine, and supports the regular Jaguar joypad as well as the ProPad controller.

Jagware Collection 1.0 is a collection of games from four different groups, presented by Jagware. The games iuncluded in this collection are: Do The Same from Cerebral Vortex, Diamjag by Orion, Atomic Reloaded from The Removers, and Beebris by Reboot. All four games support online scoreboards. Also included is an exclusive early look at the alpha build of Project II, an upcoming scrolling shoot'em up from Reboot.
With each team offering one of their titles, this collection is not only a great way to own some of the Jaguar's best visceral experiences, but also an opportunity to say thanks to Jaguar hardware developer SCPCD, creator of the JagCF and Jagtopus 4-cart programmer. Profits made through sale of this collection go directly to SCPCD to help further Jaguar hardware development.
Xu approached the balcony of his presidential suite in his usual calm and purposeful manner. This time was different, however. As he looked out to the stars for what was sure to be the last time, he knew he had only one card left to play and that it offered no realistic hope of success. The Ebil Alliance was determined to take the whole galaxy... their invading forces too great in number and their simultaneous attack on all four worlds impossible to defend. As he raised his finger and gestured towards the hangar below, signaling the launch of the Tetrad's prototype warp ship, he knew his coalition of the last four free worlds in the system could not hope to survive such an onslaught.
Kobayashi Maru: Final is a 50/60 fps rotary action shooter for the Atari Jaguar games console and was written utilizing a version of the new Raptor Engine by Reboot. It can be played with either a rotary controller (such as Chaos Reins, Tyrant or Jonathan Ascough pad) or a regular Jaguar
