atari2600land's Blog - six² for Odyssey


Recommended Posts

I was looking through AtariAge and noticed the thread where they were talking about trying to make the Odyssey be an online system. it prompted me to get out my Magnavox Odyssey and test it. Found 6 C batteries, put them in, and the console still works. It's amazing because it was released 47 years ago! Then I remembered I was going to release a game for it but never got around to it. Well, I decided that I should do it now. I had to remake the instructions because it had a copyright of 2016 (!)

I made a couple more copies since i had two pairs of dice left. So now there are 10 copies. Which means I'll sell 9. The game, as you probably guessed, is called "six2" It uses cartridge #4. And it's a two-player game. Come to think of it, I guess one player could play it as well. I guess I should add the 1-player game instructions as well. While going through my stuff, I discovered I had unsold copies of Captain Bruce and His Cosmic Boomerang as well as some overlays for Dodgeball. I wonder how those materialized.

I stayed up all night and fell asleep at 10 a.m. and woke up at about 4 p.m. And only getting 6 hours of sleep, I'm not tired as I was. But at 10 a.m. my back and neck hurt because I was working on my computer all night so it was kind of hard to fall asleep. Lesson learned: Do not spend 12 hours straight working on my computer.
