Anyone have any of the AtariAge 7800 games? Some intriguing stuff there like Frenzy, K.C. Munchkin, Moon Cresta, Rip-Off, Scramble, and Space Invaders.

I don't, but I've played them on the Wii7800 emulator and all those titles are solid. My favorites would be Frenzy (with Berzerk!) and Asteroids Deluxe, which is even better than the 7800's original Asteroids title.

For me, the best Atari 7800 game is Asteroids. I prefer it on the 7800 than any other platform.

It's got 2 player simultaneous play, the only port to have it!

Upon further review of the manual, the 2 player modes have special variations - competitive and cooperative! (that is, player's shots don't kill the other player, or they can)

I still need this game (yes, I said NEED) but... didn't the Atari 8-bit computer version have 2 simultaneous players too?

I haven't touched my Atari 7800 well actually I played a little last week. ms pac man and joust. I own the arcade ports thru Namco and midway arcade compilations on ps2, but I have always said this and maybe its because of the era I grew up on but any early 80's arcade games need to be played on Atari. You can get the arcade ports on your phone easily but for me pacman, asteroids, joust, centipede, ms pacman =Atari.
Still looking for dig dug, donkey kong and dk jr, alien brigade, xenophobe, dark chambers, and any hombrew gems.
