They were in storage when I finally pulled them out and thought about all the games I used to play for hours. Looked!

#10- BOOM!

Brian and I used the Kaboom game! permanently. It was the game he had on his Atari before me. It was ridiculously simple in design, but Kaboom! It was nerve-wracking, but addicting.

#9- BIG!

Oink was a great game! It was a clever take on the famous battle between the Three Little Pigs (Big Bad Wolf) and the Three Little Pigs (Big Little Pigs). It was a classic fairy tale gone horribly sour. Your little piggy got caught in the nasty wolf bad breath and he wasn’t going to be home anymore.


One of the most iconic Atari games. Space Invaders was one of many Atari games that took place in space. This game was available on my Atari 2600, as well as a portable version. Space Invaders is one of the most popular video games of the 1980s.


This is the first Atari game I bought with my own money. My aunt paid me $7 for every time I mowed her garden. It took me four weeks to save enough money to buy Spiderman. It was my first purchase. It was purchased at the Osco Drugs location in the Towne Square Mall in Owensboro. It was terrible graphics, but that didn’t matter. I was able to play as Spiderman and fight the Green Goblin whenever I wanted. This game was fun.


While Pac-Man is certainly the pioneer, we can all agree that Ms. Pac-Man was a far superior role model and game. Ms. Pac-Man did everything Pac-Man couldn’t: the graphics, the music, and the challenge. I loved this game.


For my money, THE best space-themed Atari game. My mother even liked to play Cosmicark. Although very simple in design and execution, the game tested your nerves, senses, and stability.


Jungle Hunt, which is very similar to another game I’ll mention in a moment, was escapism at best. It literally took you into the jungle to swing and swim with crocodiles.


I loved Donkey Kong and could play it (and all of its levels) for hours. It’s the 80s classic. A gigantic “kong”, a damsel in distress, and a hero literally leaping to her rescue.


As if your parents told you. “look both ways” Frogger has taken the learning curve to show you how to cross a road properly. If you didn’t look both ways in this game, your frog could get run over by cars and eaten by alligators.

#1- TRAP

My favorite Atari game of all time – hands down, no competition. An adventure filled with alligators and scorpions that will take you deep into the jungle to find treasure. Then you would be plunged into a twisting underground tunnel that looked like the mouth full of madness. If you manage to complete the challenges, you will be rewarded with silver and gold bars!
