You keep the old magic alive. While windows grows to 4gb, amazing what Atari could do on 1mb.
I'm hoping to get my hAtari emulator to work on Linux. Would be nice if GFA-bas could run, although I doubt I remember any of the syntax. Keep up the good work. Cheers
|Guillaume · 2013/12/04|

Very nice to find out my old favourite game :)MERCI MERCI MERCI BEAUCOUP :)
|Dwight Johnson · 2013/11/15|
Love the site. I'm the found or Lake County Area Computer Enthusiasts. (www.lcace.org). The club was founded in 1983 at an Atari Computer Club and as a PC group, is still going strong, but there are a few of us who will never forger our Atari Days.
|Steve · 2013/11/15|
Just downloaded your full set of 2600 Roms. Excellent set. Thank you. Way better then the Good2600 set.
|Samuel Layton · 2013/11/02|
Just a guy that likes Atari. That is all there is to say.
|Michael G · 2013/10/19|
I was an Atari fanboy in the 80's and I really appreciate you keeping the history alive. Thanks!!

Many fond memories here...

This emulator was written by myself.
|jay norbert · 2013/09/01|
this is one if not the best vintage site i've had the pleasure of visiting sure brings back old time competing with my father and brother.
|Rob · 2013/07/18|
Great collection! Takes me back! Like just about everyone, I had an Atari "Pong" console back in the mid 70s then in the 80s got an Atari 2600 then the 130XE along with an 800XL both of which I ran a BBS on for many years. Thanks for the memories!
|Jackintosh242 · 2013/07/09|
|Darrell Wilding · 2013/07/01|
great site tons of games i remember from when iwas a child be nice to see some modern titles developed for these systems like people do on the spectrum
|Jammer777 · 2013/06/27|
Thanks for making this site! It is awesome! Really has all the resources that I needed for all my Atari stuff. I am so glad I found it.
|Grant · 2013/06/24|
I am an 80's child that grew up with the Atari. This is a fantastic website! Thank you :)
|Maurice Samuels · 2013/06/18|
There was a "ET" game for the Atari Computers. Much better than the 2600 version and It Talked. Ahead of its time forsure please find and post :)

|Justin Knight · 2013/06/09|
An excellent Atari Web Site. I have owned Atari 400, 800, 800XL, 65XE and 520STE computers since December 1982 and what I love about the www.atarimania.com web site is the pdf's of the Atari 8 bit books, manuals magazines and Technical Documents etc. The Best Atari Web Site on the Web. Thank you.
|atarist512 · 2013/06/03|
Yes, Atari ST was amazing! Learned Programming on It. Wrote reports for School On It, At That Time It Gave Discussion If That Was Allowed.
CALAMUS, Flights Sim, Mission Elavator, Degas, Where My Favs. Greath site!
|Scott · 2013/05/31|
A fantastic site and very well laid out (If a little brown?) As an STE owner I would like to see more clarity on the differences between titles that are 'enhanced' on the STE.
|mattrocks.cats · 2013/05/30|
i love the atari 800xl system and all of the atari products (but not et).
|Steffen · 2013/04/20|
I use your site to research what cartridges to buy for my 800XL. Brilliant!
|AZepeda · 2013/03/24|
Thank you very very much for this great work.
What a wonderful memories!
I begun to love computing stuff since I knew the Atari 800 XL in 1987, now I work as software engineer because of it and I still enjoy my job.
I could only bought some numbers of MundoAtari and TurboNews in Chile those days and never saw the whole collection. I have it now!
|Raymond · 2013/03/24|
I'm glad Atari Mania is still going strong. I finally checked out the game ads page and was swept up with a wave of excitement when my memories went back many years. The ads are colorful and the art was/is inspiring setting the mood for the games very well.
|Steve Bradley · 2013/03/21|
Hi guys - just joined - might not remember me but I won the Space Invaders contest in London in 1981. Just been reading the old Member News - takes me back - still have an old scrapbook that includes every newspaper clipping that was taken from the day including even Australian coverage!!
|prfjmad · 2013/03/20|
No matter how much time passes by, how much computer technology evolves, to me nothing compares to the power inside the humble ATARI 800XL, my first computer ever. How amazing the things that CAN be done about sounds and graphics with only 32k available for programming!
|crago · 2013/03/10|
Awesome site guys, despite all the advances in technology, I still find time to play Atari 2600 games. It's my fountain of youth. It's great that you are preserving arguably the greatest period in gaming history.... well done!! keep up the great work!
|Gareth Cole · 2013/03/10|
I started off with a 2600 when very young and eventually had (after a spectrum) 529 STe upgraded to 1040. Dungeon Master, Captive, Wings of Death, Epic, Fire and Brimstone, Most Microprose titles, Another World, Castle Master, Magic Pockets, forever swapping discs, pre-ordering Legends of Valour direct from US Gold and waiting for what seemed like years for it to be released and dancing for joy the 1st time it loaded up, the box was really cool too, like a book (Bethesda have obviously used this game as an inspiration). I could jabber on forever until my tiny brain imploded and my comma key wore out. Oh and Jeff Minter is a God!
|Ron Borta · 2013/02/22|
Amazing Stuff ! I was CTO at Roklan Software, and I can't believe this stuf is still alive.
Now I can prove to my son the value of what I did before he was born.
|Sam DeRenzis · 2013/02/05|
You're amazing, thank you!
|Nanjappa · 2013/01/25|
|robert myles · 2013/01/15|
WOW, so many memories...I owed a 65XE and then the 1040STFM....I loved it! Happy to see that there still is an active community out there.
|Row · 2013/01/12|
Ahhh, so nice to revisit, my childhood. The hours spent on weekends, and ill off school, dipping into the powerpack, I can still smell the scent of the overheated st. Thankyou, Great site
|Steve · 2013/01/10|
Although I no longer have any of the old consoles & computers, I do like reading about retro history, & playing the old software. This site is an excellent resource for the Atari machines, & I must thank you for enabling me to do this.
|Scott · 2012/12/31|
Glad to see many out there who still cherish these memories. What a great time it was - making "bad sectors" on my 1050 floppy drive with sector editors, dialing into CompuChat, and hours of typing in cool programs from the latest magazines. I remember how exciting it was when a new magazine hit the stands!
Thanks to all contributors.

|Steve · 2012/12/14|
Brilliant site !
cant believe RainbowWalker isnt in the 400/800/XL /XE TOP 100!
|Philip · 2012/11/25|
Hi Guys just want to say thanks for having some great atari magazines on this site as well as a lot of great info here.
Brings back a lot of good memories.
|Jim · 2012/11/24|
Wow , you have a very complete site with lots of info.
|Christiane · 2012/11/19|
Thank you guys so much for all the wonderful memories. I am from Brazil and I used to play these games when I was 11. Now I'm a woman of 43 years old, and to be able to play these games again in my PC it is beyond words!!! Back then my favorites were asteroids and enduro. Thanks guys, again for this magnific site! Best regards, Chris.
|John · 2012/11/06|
This site is fantastic! I remember buying a copy of Antic Vol 3 No 2 June 1984 and spending hours typing in the Escape from Epsilon game into my Atari 800. Those were the days.
Thank you for making my day.
|Petari · 2012/09/13|
Great work on this site. Really good source for STX images.
Just one note: it is not possible to make "STX-loader for ST. " - even if there is plenty of RAM.
STX format is good only for emulators. When some game takes control over machine you can not execute other tasks - like decoding STX file.
|Marion Johnson · 2012/09/05|
Thanks for this site,it is wonderful to have a place like this to come to,as a teen I started on ATARI 800,it still reveger me to play with some of thease games on an emulator,thanks again,keep up the good work,the best to all your team,thanks.
|Wolf · 2012/08/29|
Thanks for this great site and lots of information.
I have an Atari 800 XL 1985 bought in Poland, because in East Germany no Atari computer was gaufen to. I have. Many programs on cassette in the "CHAOS SYSTEM" and it uses 6000 baud for data transfers There are some programs that are missing here, for example. "Star Lyricist". The programs are still to load and work without problems. Unfortunately I have only the CHAOS CopyTrans Later. I lack the programs for the 6000 baud 600 baud back to normal convert, maybe someone can help.
Thanks from Berlin
|Madcat X · 2012/08/22|
I give my best congratulations and I send only Thank you, Thaks for that years of entretaiment, but I did'n found controls for my 5200, but in this web site I can play my best games when I was a child, thanks for all ATARI and ATARIMANIA.
Thanks from Quito-Ecuador
|richard carter · 2012/08/19|
I had a lot of fun programming the Atari and missed that when I gave all my stuff away -due to emigrating. Now, with an emulator on the pc and some of the books from your site I can enjoy it once more - and, of course, play some games.
Thanks so much! :)
|Gene Avey · 2012/08/10|
Love This Site! Im 51 And Love All The Stuff Here!!!
|Warsign · 2012/08/09|
This site is just amazing. This site took me back to age 13 and some really great times. Thanks you.
|mycelo · 2012/07/27|
I can't thank enough for all the love and effort that you invested on your site. It's of great generosity that you published all this work for free, everything so well organized and simple.
Those were the golden days of videogaming, and you did a great job of displaying everything about them here, with all the care that they deserve.
I only wish I could go back in time and enjoy a bit more those long afternoons of Atari. With your great site, we can almost do that.
Best regards from Brazil.
|James Fredericks · 2012/07/23|
Thank you so much for making this site! It means a lot to me and I am telling my old friends about it who had Atari computers back in the day like me. It really fulfilled my nostalgia for Atari stuff. I will be coming here often. Great job and super thorough! :D
|kelly · 2012/07/11|
I really miss the atari and specially megamania.
|Atarifreak · 2012/07/07|
Excellent site ,
I have 2600, 7800, 130XE, 1040ST, 1040STf, 1040STe and a atari portfolio.
best machines ever
Greetings from the Netherlands.
|Bill Pritchard · 2012/06/20|
I just found this site and it has reignited my interest in all things Atari. Brilliant site, well done those who built it. I have two Atari 800 XLs and one 400 with membrane keyboard. Have about 1500 programs for them. I will have to get one set up again and have a go at Zaxxon and Clowns and Balloons. Regards to all, and thanks for letting me join.
|Scott · 2012/06/20|
Awesome resource! Thanks for all the hard work!
|bill54mufc · 2012/06/20|

|Liduario · 2012/06/03|
Great site. Here I can remember, search and learn!
I liked the vidoes very much. And the 2600 catalog is really huge.
Thank you very much! I can see much love in this work.
|CityHunter · 2012/05/25|
thank you very much for all the wonder that you placed on the site.
I never hoped to see my games that have made ??me a fanatic of video game consoles.
This is thanks atari 2600 I came to the digital world
I am especially a fan of the game Persian Gulf War that was for me the best game on this console output
Going Home Booby also another marvel
in short it is thanks to you that I was able to get his game that was a stroke of heart during my childhood
<3 Atari Mania <3
|Mark B · 2012/05/23|
You guys and girls have created one of the best websites I have ever visited. I cant thank you enough and describe just how many fond memories your website has given me of the golden age of atari gaming I had when growing up. How you have managed to catalogue all the games, pictures, movies and magazines is amazing. Your website is by far the the most comprehensive atari database ever. I had an Atari 520STe for many years and enjoyed games like Flood, Paradroid 90, Chuck Rock, Robocop 3 and many more. With your STX file dumps and the Steem emulator I can relive all those classic games again. I hope this website continues to grow and grow. Thank you. Mark B, Hampshire, UK.
|Chet C · 2012/04/14|
Thank you for this site! it has brought back many memories and wasted a lot of my time ... :)
|Javier · 2012/04/04|
WOW!! you have improve the site so much... Thank you very much this site is a dream come true.
|Beaux · 2012/03/29|
Great site. Really brings back the memories of a simpler time in life. No worries, just Atari.
|Punker-Selm · 2012/03/10|
Man waren das schöne Zeiten in den 80 jahren.ich hatte einen 800xl mit Datasette und eine Floppy.ich vermisse diese schöne zeit die leute haben da irgend wie mehr zusammen gehalten und wir waren meistens immer in kleinen grüppchen von 3-4 leuten.wenn es eine zeitmaschiene geben würde dann würd ich mich in diese schöne zeit zurück versetzen lassen.
|Jay · 2012/03/03|
Hello Everyone! I had the good fortune to work at Atari in the late 80s and you know what I miss the most? The Atari User Groups and my co-workers. What a great group of folks. User Groups (absolute FANATICS) would bring their home projects and personal code to shows - it was amazing what folks were able to do with these great little machines. And what I didn't realize back then, was how early we were in the PC world - just the dawning days of personal computing. And a special thank you to my old Boss and mentor, Sig Hartmann. I'm sure Sig is gone by now, he was a "lotta lotta" fun, a role model, and a good man. And a special thank you to Mel Stevens, Dir. of Creative Services. To watch Mel work on packaging or an ad or a booth for a show was like watching a master at his craft. An amazing guy. We had a lot of fun, and we sold a lot of great products. And thank you Sam Trammel for the opportunity. It was a blast.
|avanze · 2012/02/23|
This site is an excellent source of all things Atari.
Thanks to the team for their preservation of its memory.
|Philflound · 2012/02/22|
Having a blast helping you out and having you help me out with the scans.
|Jay · 2012/02/19|
I am an old Atari technician back when the 2600, 400, and 800 were the hottest things around. I love this site keep up the good work!!!
|Benden · 2012/02/12|
Kudo to the Atarimania team. Thanks for the work behind that awesome site. I'm 41 year old now but I can't forget that golden age of early computer gaming. You bring back that glory in such brilliant maner. Thanks again guys !
|ingrid · 2012/02/10|
hi there. this is a superb site! atari was the only console i could play and enjoy :) i was just wondering whether my favourite game still exists somewhere and if there would be a chance for you to put it in here. It's called SUBMISSION ... thanks
|James Williams · 2012/02/05|
This is the greatest archive of ATARI I have ever seen! Stumbled upon it one night and ended staying up all night reliving many memories of my ATARI 2600 and ATARI 400 days! Thanks to the authors responsible for this site, LOVE IT!!!
|Ray Allen · 2012/01/29|
Found this great site, I also found you have scans of some old mags which is great as I had some article published back in the day and I found them, thank you so much for doing this great bit of computing history. I still have all my atari gear (not sure if it works) I could never part with it. (Atari User Vol 3, no. 4 and page 6 issue 47) keep up the great work
|Jiri from the Czech Republic · 2012/01/25|
Great site.I was a kid, this site gives me tears in my eyes.:-)

Great Site,congratulations ( São Paulo Brazil )
|Kriss · 2012/01/19|
Back 25-30 years back in the past ! Still have a 800XL in the attic with its tape recorder, floppy drive and plotter, some original manuals, some copies... but I couln't manage to find the floppies :-(
Thanks for your great site ! Now, I'll be able to share with my children "my" old video games and the beginning of the video game adventure.
|Alex · 2012/01/18|
Thank you so much, for the ROM Collection of 2600 games. I'm a HUGE Atari fan and cannot afford to buy alot of Atari games and a console. The only thing stopping me from downloading emulators was all of the time to spend on Roms.
This saved me HOURS of work.
|Khtorz · 2012/01/07|
Superbe site, qu'il faut absolument maintenir. Félicitations pour le travail accompli.
Une mine d'information et une retour vers le passé qui nous est nécessaire
|Dana · 2011/12/17|
This site is great. When I was young I had a 600XL, 1010 tape deck, and stack of Antic/Analog/Compute/Softside magazines I found at sales and library. Many hours of typing. Later on I managed to upgrade to 800XL/1050 drive, then SIO cable. My atari is in a safe place now, but emulators still run on my Win 7 machine.
|TexasAtari · 2011/12/11|
Great site, brings back some great memories i had in the 1970s for the Atari VCS (2600), i am now collecting for the 2600 and 7800 and having a ton o fun, your site is a lot of help, hope that you can keep it going for many years so that Atari never dies out.
|Scott Stone · 2011/12/11|
Hey , Very impressive collection . I can't thank you enough for sharing . I appreciate this very much . Thanks again !!!
|Nicolas · 2011/12/06|

Good to see Atari is still going. Still have all my hardware; 1x400, 2x800s, 1xXE 2xXL 4x1050 and a whole bunch of STs too.

Thank you guys for the best Rom collection available for download. This is the best site about Atari. This is a real Atari Mania. I wish my best for you!!! Keep going!!
|Frank Kaaijk · 2011/06/27|
Beautiful site. Lots of info/reading for the trip on memory lane. I couldn't resist meself and immediately downloaded an Atari emulator!!
|Gary Rimmer Atari Programmer. · 2011/06/15|
I like the site. The fact that these games are celebrated and enjoyed today.
|Phil Sherry · 2011/06/03|
Thanks for this site, your doing a fantastic job. My ATARI in the 80s started me off in a career in systems, now Im retired and glad to be back.
|Mateus Fedozzi · 2011/05/09|
An excelent resource for the Atari society!
|GeoMan · 2011/05/04|
Nice site. As an owner of an Atari 2600, Atari 800 and later an ST 1040, it brings back a lot of memories!
|JCat NYC · 2011/04/27|
Amazing site. I hope it stays around for a long time! I've owned just about every computer and console since the 80's, and the Atari era was no doubt, the height of my technology high! It was sad time when the inferior, C-64 (the McDonalds of computers) took over.
|Nigel P Turton · 2011/04/21|
Just managed to find this site
Absolutely fantastic !!
Keep the Atari alive, best machines ever
|Stephan · 2011/04/15|
Just found your site. LOVE IT!
I remember spending hours on the 2600 sold it way back for 200 bucks including the 150 games i had. Man I wish I still had it.
|stefan walz · 2011/04/15|
such a wonderful valuable site! THANK YOU ATARIMANIA!!!
|Michael Melbourne Australia · 2011/03/12|
Hi, I had an Atari 800 XL when I was a boy. Only had one game for it. Was Miner2049r. Great Game! It was a cartridge which plugged in the back.
Used to play it in my Garage when I was living with my family in Knoxfield.
But one day i was interested to see what was inside the Atari 800 and I pull it apart. When I put it back together and turned it on smoke came out the back. I killed it!
This site brings out the child in me.
|Jack · 2011/03/06|
This is a fabulous site! Bookmarked as go to database for all things ST.
|Rainer · 2011/02/23|
Actually, I`m an Amiga collector and think back of the good old times, were we had that funny "Atari vs Amiga war". But I must admit, that this Atari Site is optically much better than the most of the Amiga sites I know. What should be implemented are downloadable game-music files. cheers from the old enemy ;-)
|Peter (NL) · 2011/02/18|
Brought back a lot of forgotten memories.......
|Dominic · 2011/02/01|
Ahhhh the good old day's, great site, will be back soon! :)
|Scott McClure · 2011/01/12|
This archive is fantastic! I used to subscribe to Analog during the Atari heydey in the 80s, and I remember spending hours typing in those looong strings of hex numbers so I could enjoy games in machine language instead of BASIC. The ads bring back a lot of fond memories too. Thanks again.
|1shotstudios · 2011/01/08|
I was lucky enough to find out about your website through a magazine titled: Retro Gamer: Videogames Hardware Handbook: VOL #2 it went through Consoles, Computers & Handhelds from 1977-2001 Printed in the UK & purchased in the USA. I've found this magazine booklet to be very handy & most of all extreamly interesting about all the past video game consoles and handheld devices as it goes through all the history of each & every gaming console, handheld & computer's about gaming. I feel very lucky like I stated above to find such a magazine booklet that tells me about the games, consoles in great detail & how each company learned how to produce better gaming consoles from past mistakes that were made to lead to there great sucess in todays gaming market. It was by pure luck I found this on the shelf at a very well known book store in the magazine section. I'm a collector of these consoles, games so it's come in very handy for me to purchase this older technolegy over the internet. Thanks for providing such great detailed information on your website too, It's great to finally have found what I've been looking for, for many years of reserch to be able to find these older consoles, games in which I can find for purchase & know what I'm getting before I purchase it. Keep up the awesome work your doing on your website. I look forward to reading & finding out more information on the things I want as a collector.
|Mikeee · 2010/12/30|
I really like the page. i have a 2600 was a long time ago and i have found a lot of games, back the old memories. A big thank you.
|Dave Robbie, New Zealand · 2010/12/25|
great site, will look again
|Kelsey · 2010/12/23|
Really enjoying the site. Very well done.
|Warren · 2010/11/18|
Your site brought back memories of laboriously typing in programs from magazines like ANTIC and ANALOG. Of course the checksum programs helped. I had no money for software. I am thinking about trying it again on an emulator. With the books that you have on your site I can continue with my programming education.
Thanks a lot!!!!

Very Nice site. I just rediscovered my old Atari computer after 25 years. They are great!
|oo0Zero0oo · 2010/11/12|
My mate and I used to type in program listings from ANTIC in the 80's and I never could save them; I didn't get a cassette recoder for a year after my parent bought me the 800. Then I could save things and what a blast! The 810 disk drive was brilliant, faster loading and heaps more storage. I remember the memories like they were yesterday from you website - great work, keep it up!
|Steve · 2010/11/09|
This site looks awesome
|George Spigot · 2010/11/07|

|Doclands · 2010/11/04|
So good to get back to good oldies.
Many thanks for all these infos and videos !
I'll be back as soon as possible, wandering thru this site.
|Edwin · 2010/11/02|
Fantastic Website, I will continue to Look and Update my information and find ways to improve the programming.
|Giancarlo · 2010/11/02|
Thank you guys! Great site. I can't describe how owesome it is to re visit all these games from my childhood. Many thanks again!

|Peter Outlaw · 2010/08/29|
It is nice to see websites that bring me back to my atari days.
|Retrogamer · 2010/08/22|
Great site! Lots of info and screenshots of games I played in my youth and other stuff I'd heard of but never seen/played.
Makes me want to dust off the old Atari sitting in the back of the cupboard and give it 'one more whirl'.
Keep up the good work guys and gals.
|Marco · 2010/08/17|
I'm 30 these days and part of my youth days were passing in the company of my friends and my Atari ST 1040... This site is one more where i can visit the best games ( at least in emotion and passion) i've ever played!!! Thank you and continue the GOOD WORK!!!!
|kerem · 2010/08/05|
Respect.....Thank you very much...Long live..
|DINO · 2010/08/01|
You do an excellent work here for our beloved Atari computers! Thank you guys from the bottom of my heart!
Best wishes from Greece!
|Billy · 2010/07/30|
This is a great site! I gave away my Atari 2600 in the 1980's so it's nice to be able to play the games I played when I was still a kid. It would be cool if you could play 5200 games directly from this site, as well as arcade games but at least you can play a ton of Atari 2600 games.
|Playermaniac · 2010/07/30|
Un site aussi complet sur toute l'histoire d'Atari avant Infogrames Lyon Vaise… C'est tout bonnement rarissime! Je voudrait rajouter que sur Atari ST le jeu Xénon 2 MegaBlast (Bitmap Brother's) était l'un des meilleurs Shoot'Em'Up avec des SFX surpassant les capacités de n'importe quels autres consoles de jeux de son époque! De plus la musique de Bomb The BaSS; "MégaBlast" était réstitué presque quasimment à l'identique!!! Une performance incomparable à l'époque!
|Jose A. Ramirez · 2010/07/25|
Muchas gracias amigo!!! Thank you very much my friend for sharing this excellent collection with us. Congratulations from Mexico!!!
|Tom · 2010/07/03|
Thanks for the archive of videos and magazines. All I can say is WOW! Love watching the documentary. Keep it up!
|Lucas - Brazil · 2010/06/28|
Thank you for share your Atari games database. Now I can remember my youth.
|Spin Doctor · 2010/06/09|
I learned to program on an Atari 800XL, later modified to a 256K 800XL. Back then people said I was wasting my time on such a device. 27 years later, I still program for a living. Thanks Atari!
I still have a massive collections of games, disks, drives, and computers, all Atari stuff.
|Sean · 2010/06/03|
The 800XL was my first games console.
Its great to play those games from the old days. Missle Command is exactly the way I remember it.
|adam desmarais · 2010/05/26|
lots of info to be found .
|Warren Dawson, LYNXGUY on AA · 2010/05/11|
Great site, but I found 2 games that I really want that you have no dump for.......
Biffdrop and Bopotron
|Edwin Gamez · 2010/05/08|

Michael from Germany
|Eero Tamminen · 2010/04/25|
The new Atari ST/STE/TT/Falcon section is great, but as there are already a lot of titles, it would be nice if one would be able to select in the advanced search whether one's interested e.g. in things that:
- Work (only) in medium or monochrome resolution
- Are STE or TT enhanced
- Are Falcon only
|ZionLion · 2010/04/14|
This is my new favorite site. Great info on Autoduel for the 8 bit computers under united kingdom. AWESOME SITE!
|Maartau [France] · 2010/04/11|

Keep up the good work / I follow your job for the ST/TT/FALCON section :).
See you on -aTaRi-FoRuM-.

Great site. Probably the best Atari site on the net.
|Kevin · 2010/03/15|

|Craig Smith · 2010/03/08|
What a great site, thanks for all your hard work! I still love my Atari 1200XL & the big 1050 :)
|Moises Chavez Martinez · 2010/02/27|
This page rules. I never was expected a page like this, I have my own Atari 2600 (in fact, I have 3) and I never was expected a page created only for Atari. Thanks to all the people that make this page exists. Thanks to all :D
|Clayton · 2010/02/17|
Nice website! I've been collecting atari games for a couple of years now.It's funny because i had a colecovision back in 83, which i loved, but i also had the adapter to play atari games too. Even though the graphics weren't as good as colecovisions i really liked the game play of the atari games. Reliving my youth.LOL Can't wait till you update the 7800! Just got that one for Xmas this year.
|atwwong · 2010/01/31|

|Wolfgang · 2010/01/03|
You have a great Web site. I am from Germany. In the past I had some Ataris 600 XL, 800 XL, 130XE and a lot of equipment. It´s nice to see the old pics. Thanks a lot.
|Mark from Texas · 2009/12/30|
Absolutely FANTASTIC work!!
My family bought a 400 because it played the best Pacman. I then bought a 1200XL and diskdrive from a friend that won it on a radio show. I still have both of them! This site is incredible and has allowed me to run the emulator on my PC and more easily relive so many great games!!
You guys deserve great respect!
|wonderboy from greece · 2009/12/01|

|Rev. Bobby Demonic · 2009/07/18|
In the 1980s my rock band "Circus of Legends" installed 4 ATARI 2600's on our Tour bus. We have a new bus today but we still have 3 out of 4 ATARIs on our bus and a Cabinet FULL of Games.
|kerem · 2009/06/26|

|Norman T. Thornton · 2009/05/01|
People with a historical perspective --- are good people. Yes, I am the same Norman T. Thornton that programmed Bomby (the 1k contest winner in 1988 or so) in 6502 Assembly Language.
Ah, now if only there were an archived for all the other software I've developed for the corporate world. Interesting how many coders of the past have made their way to this site. If anyone is interested in some of what I am doing these days, visit PoeticWrites.org.
In attitude, you have managed to capture the spirit of the era (a certain generosity, whimsy and technical savvy) and look of the as well. I trust that the Internet Archive (or, the like) will preserve your worthy site far into the future.
Carry-on! And, Thanks.
|rick · 2009/02/09|
Just wanted to say thanks!
I've been looking for the atari st
compare ad (the one with the waterfall
on the screen made with neochrome) for
the longest time.
It's the ad I drooled over till i got my
520st! them days are gone! :-(
|Peter Lister · 2009/01/23|
Just stumbled across this site and was amazed to find two games here that I wrote back in the 1980's, The Amulet and Blok-Head. I barely remember writing Blok-Head at all, but The Amulet was a labour of love and took me several years to complete. It's nice to see it still available, I might even have a play with it myself. Keep up the good work.
|david hoitinga · 2009/01/20|
thanks. from holland the good old days from the 80s sometimes a play still on my atari 800xl and the 130xe all the great games.
|Aaron · 2008/12/14|
All I can say is WOW! I just stumbled onto this website today for the first time and I gotta say, I'm totally impressed. It's like being a kid again... literally!
Thanks for all the memories!
|Chris Davis · 2008/12/13|
I have to congratulate you all on your hard work and dedication to the ATARI cause.
It is very encouraging to us diehards to see that there are Atarimaniacs like you still out there, and willing to give up their time to keep these wonderful computers alive.
May you continue as long as possible.
As an ATARI 8-bit owner / user / programmer for 28years, I have accumulated a lot of hardware, software, and information. If I can
contribute in any way, please let me know.
|Gilbert Frederick · 2008/12/05|
An old Atari User, and reseller here in Winnipeg.
Started with the 2600 game machine, then to 400, then advanced to 800, then to 520ST.
Had quite a library of old cartridges, tapes, and diskette programs - but, and this I am sorry to say, didn't seem to have a market, so I junked much of the product.
Still have an original PAC-MAN in sealed package #CXL4200, for the 400/800 machine; and also a sealed carton DEFENDER #CX2609. Stickers on boxes are the red N, which I think means for North America.
Published a newsletter called Ad Astra, for the Atari Microcomputer Network (radio amateur group), and did this for about 8-1/2 years.
Sure miss those old days!

Look at the Slovak and Czech Atari scene. You dont have latest information. A lot of latest pretty games are not here.
Please update it.
|Ellexis Lindsay Fletcher · 2008/03/19|
As a former Atari authorized retailer, elf Software, I still own (and enjoy) much of my Atari overstock. It's wonderful to see Atari alive and well here on your site!
God's best to you!

I programmed Domination, Trutti Frutti and Hotel Alien for the Atari 400 & 800 back in the days when 48k was huge. Just found your site. Neat!
|Ralf Woitinas · 2008/02/21|
As one of those old old veterans of the tape drive and Assembler battlefield in the 1980's, i was touched to find a site like this where all those 'gems' are still alive and so phantastically organized. Even those old game authors (like El Ualid Nouri, Christian Griesbeck and little old me) are mentioned. I like it!!! ;-) All I can say is: Great work!
|SWAMPJOE · 2008/02/10|
WONDERFUL WEBSITE, WHEN ARE WE GOING TO SEE THE MANUALS SCANS ALONG THE BOXES. THANKS
|Darren Ison · 2008/01/23|
I owned an Atari 800XL from when I was 11 years old (1984) and then an Atari ST later. Interested in old games from my Childhood. I used to own several games that are currently missing on this site, will have to see if my parents still have the original cassettes/disks.
|avanze · 2008/01/21|
I love this site. Long live the Atari!
|Paul Cunningham · 2008/01/18|
1st visit. My intro to computing was via a 400 I won playing Asteroids in a tournament at Penn Square Mall. It changed my life, and I owe my ability to write concise, clean PLC code to my experiences as a 14 year old creating videogames for the neighborhood kids.
Too bad we don't have a modern version of the old system available with today's speed, memory and permanent storage. Imagine how much machine code you could run during the VBI with a 2.0Ghz processor!
I spent many hours waiting for the old tape drive to load my latest creations into 16K of ram.
Today I wait about the same amount of time with one hand tied to a mouse watching the hourglass spin on my Windoze XP machine.
I was surprised to see there are still people who are interested in atarimania...I was simply googling Atascii for chits and giggles...
|John · 2008/01/14|
First visit here. As an alltime Atari addict, I love to see sites like these. Hopefully all information will be available soon. Keep up the good work!
|R.M. · 2008/01/09|
Thanks for the work on this site. It has been a great source helping me rebuild my old Atari 8-Bit collection.

IT IS A FANTASTIC SITE TO ENJOY EVERYONE, CARRY ON................
|paul westphal · 2007/09/14|
Can anyone find "aliens: the search for newt"? It came on a disk with both the c64 and atari versions on it. Some people say it does'nt exist, but I know for sure.. back in the day I copied it... but lost it when i sold my 800xl(w/ an indus gt drive and an xm301 modem!!). I looked all through homesoft as well..
|Don Palmer · 2007/07/02|
As the programmer of one of the games preserved here (Ithix for the Atari 8-bit) I'm pleased to find such a great site keeping the memory of these games alive! Thanks!
|Robert · 2007/06/24|

|Rom Hunter · 2007/06/06|

I programmed the Atari 800 Craps Simulator. On a whim I did a Google search and here it is. I enjoyed writing it and I hope at least a few people found it fun. Thanks!
|David H. Simmons · 2006/09/18|
Excellent site! I did several Atari 800 games for Adventure International before college and it's nice to see them all listed here. I've finally ordered a SIO2PC cable so I can get you a Star Trek 3.5 .atr and better copies of Galactic Empire & Trader soon.

My computing career began with a 600XL. Upgraded it myself to 64K !
Started with a datarecorder (1010), and later upgraded to a diskdrive (1050).
What a great site to see the stuff I played with !!!
I'll check my 'dusty&rusty' archive to see what I have left.
|Tom · 2006/07/25|
I tried contacting you via your email address but it was returned. Is there an error in it?

hey rom hunter!this site is exellent!
|Jon · 2006/05/25|
Never mind, I figured it out... the game was called Shamus.
|Jon Snyder · 2006/05/24|
I developed the game Syntron but thought it was long lost until coming across your site. Thank you!! I have a few other games to contribute if you would like them. I originally developed Syntron because there was no Robotron ripoff for the Atari 800 (and if there was, I wouldn't have been able to afford it at that time anyway). I then developed "Escape from Syntron" because I loved another arcade game for (I think) the Atari 800. It was a commercially available game (though not made by Atari - and I don't think it was ever a coin-op game) that came out sometime in the 1983-85 period. You would go through mazes and shoot monsters a la Berzerk or Robotron, but there were things (keys?) you could pick up along the way and then move to different sets of mazes and eventually "win" the game somehow. I can't remember if you won by escaping all the mazes, or rescuing a princess, or what it was. But it was a fun arcade style shoot em up with a quest element to it. Does that game sound familiar to anyone?
|RDxZorge · 2006/05/09|
Pretty nice collection!
|Atri · 2006/05/09|
I really like the 2600 games section, thanks for all the info.
|HMS · 2006/05/07|
I programmed Advanced Pinball Simulator for codemasters back in the late 80's. 1988, if I remember rightly through the fog of years. Nearly knocked me out seeing it here; this site is fantastic. I still own the copyright for this piece of rubbish, but since I made very little money out of it I'm really glad you've got it up here. Codemasters offered me a pittance for the copyright way back in the day and, of course, I refused. I was in my teens when I made it and I have fond memories of the time, so even though the game is rubbish I didn't want to give up the rights. I'm really chuffed that you've got it here for people to download. Don't blame me for the music, though. As for the bugs, they were all my fault; well I was teenager when I wrote the code.
This is a wonderful site. Tons of stuff that really brought back good memories.

IS VERY GOOD, REMEMBER IT`S GAMES...
|Betsy · 2006/04/02|
Great site! If you are every trying to remember what a game looks like, or what other games were similar, you might check out http://www.hallofvideogames.com. It's a visual video game database. A great compliment to this site I think!

Hello, Glad to meet with other Atari enthusiasts. Myself, I've been looking forward to playing Epyx Jumpman again. Now it looks as though I may finally get that chance.
|Ivan · 2006/03/05|
Hi guys, thank you so much for building this site! I had this strange feelings for a couple of months that I really need to see "The Great American Cross-Country Road Race" once again in my life but I didn't see a way to do it as my 800XL suddenly died a couple years ago. You fullfilled my dream this way. It's like a feeling a touch of fate or so...

Looking for Adventure Construction Set for the Atari 400/800 computer. It was programmed by Stuart Smith and published by Electronic Arts back in 1980 or so.
I own the original floppies and due to some problems when I moved from Iowa to Florida, they have become unusable!
I was hoping I could get a download of this excellent adventure maker.
Back in high school, my friend and I had a small adventure company that used the C64 version and a friend of his that had both--he'd convert our C64 adventures to Atari.
I eventually fell into an Atari 400/800 system with a floppy drive, tape drive, joysticks and a mouse. ACS was one of the programs I got with that system. Please help me.
P.S. This is the *BEST* website for Atari 8-Bit software. Though some of it is unavailable or "missing", it just proves that the Atari 8-Bit series of computers were the best and easiest to work with. I do miss 'ACS', though...
|Rob · 2006/02/28|
(Sorry.) I wanted to list my e-mail address.
|Steve · 2006/02/17|
I love the ability to bring up software by author or company, verrrry verrrry nice!
|Vic T · 2006/02/04|
Excellent site - very well presented. Great to see some program listings from magazines. I notice there are programs from the UK Home Computer Weekly magazine. I had a couple of games published in that magaizine when I was a child (HCWMAN (PacMan clone) and THE CHAOTIC CROSSING (Frogger clone), so when I can find the magazines in the garage I submit the them. Please keep up the good work.
|Jeff Fulton · 2006/01/07|
Completely amazing site! Lots of very hard work has gone into this!
|John · 2005/12/24|

i was delighted to see the almost definitive records regarding the Atari 65XE as it is otherwise missing from computergame journalism. (Having been refused entry into the wider commercial market by the success of the C64, Spectrum and Amstrad 8 BITS, this format was almost erased from computergame history) I was particularly pleased to find info relating to 'Space Raiders' and its sequel in reference to the source movie. Insightful.
|Shakermaker · 2005/10/05|
Great site, finaly I found "Fiffikus" here, an old Public-Doman Quiz-game which entertained me for hours and hours in the past while I was a child. Thank you!
|geosteve · 2005/10/02|
I love the immersity of this site, the info I've learned here is great, highly recommended to newcomers

Greetings from Poland. Finally sth comparable to www.worldofspectrum.org for the 8 bit Atari community. Thank you so much for bits of nostalgia. I appreciate your efforts and will be coming back frequently. Well done!
|RetroKel · 2005/07/31|
Your site is truly an inspiration to 8-bit gamers the world over! Excellent site, great work guys! You inspired me to make my own effort at spreading the Atari word - www.retrokel.tk

Has anybody got original cassette or disk sleeves I can borrow of any UK English Software games eg. Hijack, Airstrike etc etc
|John Foskett · 2005/05/10|
Hi, Great site. I was browsing the web to see if I could find any of my old Atari programs and found your site by chance when I stumbled upon my Anagrams game. I found some of my other programs listed as well. It is great to find my Atari programs living on. You are welcome to include any of my other programs, check out my website for more Atari programs ... www.johnap.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk
|densonj · 2005/05/05|
Real nice site. The screen shots and instructions are wonderful. In all my years as an Atari computer user I've never gotten tired of my old 8-bits. It's so good to see so many people feel the same way!
P.S. If you have kids, make sure you turn them on to the Atari. My kids love it. They have the new PC games and such, but they still spend plenty of time playing carts like Gauntlet, Star Raiders, etc... on my old 130XE. The little ones especially love the Light Gun. Barnyard Blaster is the favorite in my house (played on an old 800XL).
|Andy · 2005/04/26|
Hey ! I´m really enjoy this page!
Specially the 8Bit section. It remebers my on the "good old"

Hello, please teel me, where can I find download of the games for 8bit (atr or xex format) "Miecz i Magia" and "Maszyna Czasu" ? I cannot find it anywhere. Thank you for answer. Lucas from Czech Republic.
|Rom Hunter · 2005/04/18|
Yesss! Home Vision and Bit Corp scans!
The more obscure PAL game scans, the better!
Keep up the good work!
|Craig Overland · 2005/04/16|
By far my favorite resource ofr Atari 8bit information. The Database is absolutely AWSOME !~! Thanks you for all your hard work.

This is the best www site I have ever faced...The best retro flashback...thank GOD for ATARIMANIA !!!
|Michael Sundell · 2005/03/06|
It's just too bad that so few people remember the great computers made by Atari. For someone like me that used to create Atari games this site rocks.
|Subjugator · 2005/03/01|
Absolutely outstanding effort - keep up the great work !
|doncleth · 2005/02/21|
One of the best, if not the best Atari 8-bit site! Nice to relive all the moments playing my 600XL in the 80s. Keep up the good work!
|wlk · 2005/02/09|
|Malcolm · 2005/02/05|

I am missing the search engine, top ten of games and light text on darker background!
|Ulf · 2005/01/12|

Fantastic site! Just blown me away.. What a pitty I've lost some of my Atari PC ads though..
|Martijn Veken · 2004/10/31|
Great site, it's hard to find site with good XL/XE stuff, but this site has got tons of it. Keep up the good work!
|Shawn · 2004/10/22|
I have always wanted an Atari Log Book...this is excellent!!!
|johnnyrebel · 2004/10/16|
Actually, I`m one of the "enemy", an c64 fan that usually hangs out at lemon64...but I gotta hand it to you guys, this site is very impressive :)
|LeeT · 2004/10/09|
What an excellent resource - Just came across your site and found quite a few downloads that cannot be found elsewhere (esp ones from UK companies). A Big THANK YOU!
|T0M · 2004/10/05|
Le meiilleur site toutes langues confondues !
Dès que je rentre en France, j'enverrai mes archives pour contribuer au site
Mille merci pour le superbe travail !
|Mike Stepansky · 2004/09/25|
Of all of the Atari sites and ftp server I have explored thus far, Atarimania.com is the most complete database to help me find the long-forgotten games or software for Atari XL/XE. I wish it has more search features, ie. whats the largest file size? what are the games released in 1995, if any? Which games are in ML (Machine Language, 6502 binary native) to filter out BASIC ones? Which ones was in the form of ROM than floppy disk? and most importantly, which ones are in USA and Europe (and other countries)? The ponderable questions Atari historians would like to ask. But hey, atarimania.com and atariage.com are exciting sites to peek the never seen before stuff! :o)
|Bill Badeau · 2004/09/10|
What can I say that hasn't been said by all the great comments. Like most, I bought my first Atari in 1980 and finally moved on in the 90's when it became obvious that Atari would not survive. I learned to write programs on an Atari and the skills I developed contributed to the programming position I now enjoy. Thanks for a great site, and let us know if we can contribute in any way!
|Karl Rinne · 2004/09/06|
author of "Dark Star" and "House of Usher". Congrats! Brilliant site!
|GT Turbo (Cerebral Vortex) · 2004/08/13|
Nice site, i like, that remind me some old good years !!
|Pratik Patel · 2004/08/07|
This is a great site! Good work guys! I still have fond memories of growing up with Atari. Starting with the 400 then the 130XE and finally a 520STE. I learned to program on those machines and here I am now working and making games for Electronic Arts! I'll never forget those late nights in front of a flickering TV as I peeked and poked memory locations and learned about sprites and game logic - your site brought all those memories back. Congratulations on a great site once again!
|John Alvarez · 2004/07/17|
Thanks ever so much for the oipportunity to enjoy the old Atari again. I may be a newbee to the immulator , however, your game immages all run.
|Steve Low · 2004/07/07|
author of Space Thief & Mt. Nuke. Two games published in Compute! magazine. Found site via Google search.
|Peter Zetterberg · 2004/06/28|
Fantastic site! Having developed games since I was a kid, this site gives me tears in my eyes. Got to play Goonies again after 20 years.
|Justin · 2004/06/21|
Excellent job guys, well done!!!
|Richard Legge · 2004/06/12|
Hi, at last a site that has an extensive catalogue AND with Covers. Most of the other sites have either lots of games but no info or they have the info but not much games.
Fantastic stuff - keep up the good work!
|Kev Bell · 2004/05/30|
Nice Site and a lot of good memories! Keep up the good work, it's appreciated ;-D
|Andrew Dickinson · 2004/05/29|
Nice to see such a site there are even some games on here i wrote. Only just get back in to the 8-Bit stuff
Plastron and Heartbreak
Take a look at the title in the game and the title on the box of the second game and spot the mistake :-)
|Freddy Offenga · 2004/04/24|
Good work! It's nice to finally see a structured and detailed implementation of Atari 8-bit software descriptions. This is definitely going to be one of my favourite Atari 8-bit sites!

|Mr.Bacardi · 2004/04/11|
Your site is really great and it delivers very detailed information ! I especially love your database for XL/XE ! Keep up the good work and I hope the missing items will be updated soon ;-) - Mr.Bacardi -
|Andrew Bernstein · 2004/02/25|
You guys rocks !
It's a truly wonderful web site and you show such passion that I don't think anybody's gonna catch up with you anytime soon.
The fact that you mention such rare and hard to find titles + the software houses associated with them is just plain wonderful (beyond your web site, where am i going to find 3D Red Baron and all these German software houses ? Even Mr. Bacardi limits himself to the biggest names).
Anyway, keep up the good work.
|Justin · 2004/02/23|
I have been logging on to your site for some time now and have watched it grow and grow! I have enjoyed my 8-bit Atari since 1983 and although I have always kept right up-to-date with the latests hardware/software gizmo's, still rate it as the best home computer ever made. Many thanks for your support and providing some rare information and pictures, please continue to do so.
