Halo for the Atari 2600

Press 2 to Rest/Start the game. Move with Arrow keys. Once you’ve found a gun, shoot with left-ctrl.

503137_orig.png This is a demake of Halo, that is playable on an Atari 2600. It was written by former VP of Games at Microsoft, Ed Fries, a few months in to his retirement. It’s one of the hardest, and most visually creative games ever released for the Atari. Give it a shot, and imagine seeing this in 1980.
