The Atari 2600 console with joystick

This is a list of games for the Atari 2600 video game console, totaling more than 565 games, divided into the following sections: games published by Atari and Sears, games published by third parties during the 2600's production run, and later homebrew releases. The Atari 2600 was first released in North America on September 11, 1977 and featured nine launch titles: Air-Sea Battle, Basic Math, Blackjack, Combat, Indy 500, Star Ship, Street Racer, Surround and Video Olympics. The final licensed Atari 2600 games released in North America were Ikari Warriors, MotoRodeo, Sentinel, and Xenophobe in the spring of 1991 [1], and the final licensed games released in Europe were Klax and Acid Drop in 1990 and 1992, respectively.

Games published by Atari and Sears[edit]

All 136 of the initial era[when?] of Atari 2600 games were developed and manufactured by Atari, Inc. These games were published by Atari, and many were also licensed to Sears, which released these games under its Tele-Games brand, often with different titles.[2] Sears's Tele-Games brand was unrelated to the company Telegames, which also produced cartridges for the Atari 2600 (mostly re-issues of M Network games.)[3]

Three games were also produced by Atari Inc. for Sears as exclusive releases under the Tele-Games brand: Steeplechase, Stellar Track, and Submarine Commander.[2]

Games published by third parties[edit]

As the Atari 2600 console grew in popularity, in 1980 [9] other game developers, such as Activision and Imagic, entered the market and published more than 380 of their own cartridges for the Atari 2600. Many of the most popular Atari 2600 titles, such as Pitfall! and Demon Attack, are third-party titles.[10]

Homebrew games[edit]

Screenshot of the Atari 2600 homebrew Stay Frosty by Darrell Spice Jr.

The Atari 2600 has been a popular platform for homebrew projects, with more than 50 games developed. Unlike later systems, the Atari 2600 does not require a modchip to run cartridges. Many games are clones of existing games written as programming challenges,[17] often borrowing the name of the original.

In 2003, Activision selected several homebrew 2600 titles for inclusion in the Game Boy Advance version of their Activision Anthology, as indicated below.[18]
