I was wondering what Atari 2600 games are available in MSX. It doesn't matter if the game was not originally released in this videogame. The only requirement is that the game is available in Atari 2600.

Up until now, I can remember these games listed below. Are there any other games ?

Beamrider
Burger Time
Congo Bongo
Decathlon
Donkey Kong
Double Dragon
Elevator Action
Frogger
Front Line
Galaxian
Ghostbusters
Ghostbusters II
Hero
Ikari Warriors
Jungle Hunt
Keystone Kappers
Kung Fu Master
Montezuma's Revenge
Moon Patrol
Night Driver (homebrew)
Pacman
Pitfall I
Pitfall II
QBert
Rally-X
River Raid
Rock'n Rope
Space Invaders
Space Shuttle
Super Cobra

Pong, there are several versions for MSX, like the superv pong512 or neopong512.
Pong on atari2600 was inside video olympics cartridge, a multi game cartridge for atari2600.

Also there is Klax, pengo, track and field, California games, time pilot,...

I ask because I love Atari games, and there's always a chance that games that I played when I was a kid in my Atari 2600 are available in MSX, and it would be nice to see a enhanced version of those games. Smile

Thanks for the info about those games. I forgot about Pong. The other games I wasn't aware that they were available in Atari 2600. I'll add them to the list. Smile

I want suggest real Atari PacMan and Centipede for Coleco.
Yes I know, this is for Coleco, not Msx, anyway Pacman is the best 8 bit version and is made by Atari,
while you can run Atari Centipede with Mission emulator.
I' m searching a way to run Atari Pacman on Msx, If someone can help me...

Bye
Andrea

Thanks Andrea. I prefer to wait until the Coleco games are ported to MSX, so we won't need an emulator to run them. There are other Coleco games that are also available in Atari 2600, like Motocross Racer, Dragonfire, Smurfs e Popeye. I hope someone ports them to MSX. :)
