BurgerTime, Atari 2600

The Atari 2600 version of BurgerTime is extremely basic and contains little of the character and playability of the arcade original.

Yes: the gameplay is the same in essence – walk over, and drop the various layers of a number of hamburgers, onto plates below – but in reality it is hampered with ‘sticky’ controls and graphics that aren’t sure whether they are video game sprites or breeze blocks… The BurgerTime tune is recognisable though.

This might appeal to hardcore Atari VCS fans, but to the rest of us: Atari 2600 BurgerTime is little more than a joke. Pity, really, but the limitations of the machine are stretched to almost breaking point with this interpretation.

BurgerTime versions on The King of Grabs:
Arcade, Apple II, Intellivision, PC, Atari 2600, ColecoVision,
