List of Atari 7800 games
This is a list of games for the Atari 7800 ProSystem, or simply the Atari 7800 video game console, totaling to 59 games. It was a video game console released by Atari Corporation in January 1986. A test market release had occurred two years earlier under Atari Inc. The 7800 was designed to replace Atari Inc.'s unsuccessful Atari 5200 and later to re-establish Atari Corp.'s market supremacy against Nintendo and Sega. With this system, Atari Inc. addressed all the shortcomings of the Atari 5200: it had simple digital joysticks; it was almost fully backward-compatible with the Atari 2600; and it was affordable (originally priced at US$140).
In addition to the aforementioned games, there also exists aftermarket homebrew games (which are mostly clones of arcade games).

- Klax (programmed by Blue Sky Software). The game was nearly completed when canceled. For years, it was traded privately until a ROM was made available to the general public. Later, the developer appeared to create additional levels for the community.
- Gato (programmed by Ibid Inc. Software). Released on the XE Game System, an Atari 7800 version was started but not completed beyond a simple demo.
- Missing in Action (programmed by Sculptured Software for TNT Games). A side scrolling adventure that was about 85% complete when cancelled. The game is mostly playable with some later collision detection issues requiring cheats to get past.
- Pit-Fighter (programmed by Imagitec Design). An early demo of the game has been found, with crude graphics, no sound and poor collision detection.
- Rescue on Fractalus! (programmed by GCC). A conversion of the popular computer game was released by GCC in 2004. The game was partially complete with a running engine but no enemies.
- Other 7800 games remain lost, despite indications that development occurred. The most notable of these are Skyfox (shown on the back of the original system box) and ElectroCop (artwork has since been uncovered).
Engineering Notes list Tempest as a game that was between 15–20% completed for the Atari 7800; no code to date has been found. The Atari Museum located and posted unreleased box art and notes for a 7800 version of Crystal Castles, but no code to date has been found for that game, either. Atari's earlier 7800 games listing showed Millipede as one of the games in the line up; however, it does not appear that it was ever started or worked on.
This list contains 31 homebrew games on this list. This number is always up to date by this script.
