Double-Game Package - Astrowar / Black Hole
Auf dem Modul "Black Hole" befindet sich das Spiel "Cosmic Ark"!

The "Black Hole" Cartridge contains the game "Cosmic Ark"!
Othello
Like Jason I own this cart as well. It's a nice break from the fast-paced arcade games. And the 2600 plays a mean game of Othello. This is one 2600 game that should not be missed.
Star Raiders
I can confirm the secret rank is ATARI (at least on the PAL version).
Enduro
I am having difficult getting Enduro to start; It loads fine, but space bar, F, arrow keys...none of them work to actually begin game play.

Mission 3,000 A.D.
I think this is heavily inspired by Bosconian!
And it's great fun, too! You just have to get
used to the somehow strange layout of the
playing field, but then it's quite challenging!

(6/10)
Pac-Man
For those not aware, this was not meant to be a released game by the man who wrote the program, it was a proof of concept. Atari wanted to release it immediately so that's what we got. Tod Frye wanted to clean it up but wasn't given the time to do so.
E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial
In 1982, Atari was still dominating the home video game market with (mostly) hit-after-hit of arcade conversions, and E.T. was a highly popular movie that had broken all the box office records at the time. Surely the two combined forces would have created an all-time best seller, right?

Everything has been said of what a disaster the game was, and perhaps rightly or wrongly so depending on your POV. I couldn't get into the game back then and still can't get into the game today, even with the benefit of an emulator to save the progress as I go along. (Too frustrating!)
Adventure
Have you ever used the bridge to get what we called the dot? Once you have the dot you can break through the solid line wall and see credits. Exciting stuff back in 1984.
Pac-Man
It's funny, when this came out I had to have it. I even knew it was bad in many ways, but I had played it at my friend's house and I guess I bought into the hype because I had my mom drive me around until we found a copy. 3 stores later, I finally found a store that wasn't sold out and I paid $37.95 for it (a record for me at the time) at a store ironically called Pay & Save.
Enduro
This game must be something like a prelude to Road Race. The programmer is different, but the sounds, graphics, control, changing of seasons, and daytime is just like it was in TGACCRR. As for A2600 it's great!
