Epyx programmed this 1988 conversion of California Games themselves, and – to be honest – it’s actually not that bad, considering the Atari 2600‘s limitations.
This 1987 conversion of the classic Winter Games is about as basic as it gets, in terms of Winter Games conversions (and there are quite a few of them).
Programmed by K-Byte for Epyx and published in 1986, World Games is an eclectic mix of eight different sports events, inspired by various unusual sports from around the world.
I have to say: I really love Chip’s Challenge, and have done ever since I first played it on its original platform: the Atari Lynx.
Converted by UK-based Images Software and published by US Gold in 1990, Chip’s Challenge is an old school maze/puzzle game, set inside a computer, and it features well-defined, cute graphics, and challenging puzzles. It has all the ingredients of a classic game.
The Atari Lynx version was the original version of Chip’s Challenge. It was developed by Chuck Sommerville at Epyx and first released in 1989.
The Sega Master System conversion of Dennis Caswell‘s classic Impossible Mission is pretty damn good.
Epyx‘s Super Cycle first came out for the Commodore 64 in 1986. It was critically well-received and sold reasonably well. I remember buying the cassette version and very much enjoying it.
Gateway To Apshai is sometimes described as a Roguelike RPG, but it doesn’t have randomly generated dungeons – they’re set, in number order, and there are a lot of them.
US Gold and Epyx converted the classic Impossible Mission to the BBC Micro in 1986 and it was a reasonable success.
