I am trying to retrieve the true game list of this cartridge, because the instructions booklet titles are a not very accurate.
River Raid
Brilliant game.
Atlantis
Played it for the first time this weekend. Love it.
Subterranea
Maybe the best Defender-Clone on this System. Even more Fun than Chopper Command!
Sadly, no one seems to know about this Game's existence!
Funny, that the Game begins with a "Boss-Fight" and then starts with the "regular" Game...
An underrated and unknown Classic!
Pac-Man
Man, this Game really took a lot of Beating up till now. Can't understand it. Surely, it lacks some technical polishing, but I think it's not half as bad as always said.
Here in Germany, Kids couldn't go into the Arcades and play the original Game. Arcades were only for Adults. The only Version of Pac-Man we knew, was this one...and we loved it! We couldn't compare it to the Arcade-Version, but even then I wouldn't say it's gruesome. There are a lot of 2600-Games with worse Graphics and worse Gameplay.
I still play it from Time to Time on harder Game-Variations and Difficulty-Settings.
I'd say it's a 7.5 of 10.
Weltraumtunnel
Cool game! Played this as kid - and today again. Made 76000 points. I love this game - but it can be very frustrating.
Beamrider
David Rolfe didn't program this version -- he created the original, on the Intellivision. It's currently unknown who the programmer of the 2600 version was. It would be great if you could ferret that out somehow! (I know, I know..."Feel free.")
Superman
wonderful... made in 1979...5 years after 1984 pitfall.

Crazy Climber
It was only sold through the Atari Age magazine as an exclusive. It never saw wide release. Why I don't know, because the VCS version was and is rather faithful. Why pay for a license and then not fully take advantage of it? Perhaps Atari's lack of faith was the result of the game being done by an outside firm, Roklan Corp., who didn't impress anybody with their game, Racer. Perhaps they felt the standard 8K wasn't enough, but yet Atari's SuperChip was available and not used for this (and it should have been). Maybe the exclusive sales weren't what Atari expected, and that's why it never saw a wide release. Or maybe they put too much importance on EG's horrible review. Then again, Atari was not all together unfamiliar with making horrible decisions under Kassar's and Morgan's leadership, so I guess we shouldn't be that surprised it was mishandled.

It's a real box alright. The cart itself is common, I saw hundreds of those at Atari, Slough, UK, the box is a different matter, pretty rare.
