Fighting Atari 2600?

GemWare Games

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately there really aren't any games in the Atari 2600 library that we would think of as fighting games from a modern perspective. As in, a 2D side view 1 vs 1 fighting game with life bars like Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat. The closest thing you'll to a fighting game is probably Realsports Boxing, which is a total button masher but can still be fun in short bursts.


I've been really hoping that a homebrew developer would make a fighting game for the Atari 2600 or 7800 for a while now, but sadly it hasn't happened yet.

There's also a bad port of Double Dragon, but that's not strictly a fighting game either.


I know there have been attempts at homebrew fighting games, but the only finished one that comes to mind right away is Atarena, which can be found here:




The 2 other 2600 games on that page are pretty cool as well.
