Three dragons, a thieving bat, and hours of fun...

User Rating: 8.5 | Adventure 2600
Adventure is one of the best games for the Atari 2600. Your goal is to retrieve the enchanted chalice and return it to the golden castle. All that stands between you and the chalice is a sticky-fingered (sticky-winged?) bat, who has a knack for taking items just when you really need them, and three dragons. Yorgle, the yellow dragon, is the first one you'll face. Luckily, he sometimes runs away from certain items so he's not that much of a problem. Grundle the green dragon and Rhindle the red dragon are not as easy. To give yourself the best chance of completing your quest, you'll have to kill them with your sword.

Apart from the wildlife, there's also a maze or two to deal with. Luckily, they are easy to navigate, but that doesn't take anything away from the fun factor of this game.

Once you figure out the layout of each map, you'll be able to run through each of the game's three modes blindfolded. Despite this, it's still worth playing. If you don't have an old 2600 in the attic, there's still a few ways to play it. You can get one on eBay, you can pick up the Atari Flashback plug and play system, or if you have an XBOX or PS2, play it on Atari Anthology. No matter how you do it, Adventure is definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of old-school gaming.
