Atari 7800 Easter Eggs
« on: April 20, 2017, 02:26:05 AM »
Easter Eggs are fun in video games.  Thought I'd add a thread for these on the Atari 7800 games.  Here is one that was recently discovered by AA member save2600.  The game is Space Invaders...

During the title screen, press pause until you see Robert's name on the bottom. Then press fire, select your game options, then fire again to begin the game. You'll be treated to the 2600 invader graphics!

I do not own the 7800 version looks like another good reason to purchase the game.

It is an excellent port and it has a menu with tons of options that will remind you of the 2600 version.
