The Unauthorized Atari 2600 Book Series by Michael Salzman


Recommended Posts

I have several of these and I've liked them. They are small books but they are nicely done. The content is all black and white but each game has a picture, some history, description, etc. They are well done and you can see several of them have good reviews on Amazon.

Thank you for the kind words! The Throw Back Zine is in full color!

Last week I bought the "The Unauthorized Atari 2600 Activision Companion", and it's really really good! It describes all the 44 Activision games for the Atari 2600 (which IMO are among the best games).

This book is both fun to read and informative. The author describes the objective of each game, talk about best strategy to play it, and ends with some good honest (retrospective) analysis for each game. Also I love the introduction for each game, which certainly sets the right mood to go and play it (or to collect it!)


I just bought the rest of Atari 2600 books from this author. I hope they're as good as this one!

Issue 3 of the Unauthorized Atari Throw Back Zine is now Available on Amazon. Thank you everyone for your support! It can be purchased here: http://a.co/5FolD3t

 

I ordered it right away from Amazon.de (which offers free shipping to the Netherlands!). I hope issues 1 and 2 will be delivered on my doorstep today, so I can do some reviews soon!

This guy has put out a lot of books in a short time. I'm wondering if anyone on here has read them and can offer some feedback or advice which of these books are worth buying. For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, here are some links:

The Unauthorized Atari 2600 Arcade Companion Volume 2: Another 33 Of Your Favorite Arcade Games Ported To The Atari 2600

You forgot to mention the The Unauthorized Atari 2600 Imagic Companion and The Unauthorized Atari 2600 Coleco Companion.

Both are great booklets for $5.

 

I hope one day Mike will also publish "The Unauthorized Atari 2600 Parker Brothers Companion", as they've created some really great Atari 2600 games (Frogger, Cobra Strike, Q*bert, Spider-Man, Star Wars, Super Cobra, etc.)
