Play Halo's Atari 2600 'Port' With This Cartridge Now On Sale

Almost three years ago, Ed Fries—a Microsoft executive instrumental in acquiring Bungie and making Halo the definitive Xbox series—created Halo 2600, a flash game demake that imagined the game on an old Atari VCS. Now, AtariAge.com is putting the game's ROM on a proper cartridge, with period box and label art and an instruction manual.

The cart already had a limited run back in 2010, for the Classic Gaming Expo that year. This release will have a new label to differentiate the releases. There's a limit of two cartridges per buyer, and they are available in NTSC and PAL formats.

If you wish to play the game, you may do so here. It's essentially a mash-up of Adventure and Berzerk, but the bleep-bloop-boop interpretation of the Halo anthem is outstanding.
