Halo 2600 Box Description

HALO. One of the decade's most renowned video game franchise has finally found a home on the Atari 2600!

In this special version of HALO you play the role of Master Cheif as he battles his way through 64 screens! Locate weapons and power-ups that will help you defeat increasingly aggressive enemies!

Watch for special Shield power-ups that will give you a second chance when engaging an onslaught of Elites!

Do you have what it takes to tackle the four different zones and infiltrate the Covenant base? Can you reach and defeat the final boss? Humanity is counting on you!

About the author: Ed Fries was vice president of game publishing at Microsoft during much of the Xbox's lifecycle. He was a prime evangelist of the platform to game developers and had an important role in the acquisition of developers Bungie Studios, Ensemble Studios, and Rare.

Halo 2600 Game Description

The year is 2552. Planet Earth still exists, but overpopulation has forced many of her former residents to colonize other worlds. After contact with an outer colony was lost, a battlegroup was sent to investigate and was almost completely destroyed; only one badly damaged ship returned to tell of a seemingly unstoppable alien warship that had effortlessly annihilated their forces.

This was humankind's first encounter with a group of aliens they eventually came to know as the Covenant, a collective of alien races bent on wiping out humanity. A desperate plan is set in motion: board a Covenant vessel and
 learn the location of the Covenant home world. But before the mission begins, Covenant forces strike
 and annihilate the attack force.

The Covenant are now on Earth's doorstep. One ship escapes and makes a blind jump into deep space, hoping to lead the Covenant away from Earth. The ship crashes on Halo--an artificial ring world that is actually a weapon capable of destroying all life in the galaxy should it fall into the hands of the Covenant.

You are the Master Chief--all that remains of a classified military project to build a series of genetically enhanced super- soldiers. You are humanity's last and best hope against the Covenant--but you're woefully out-matched, and survival is not guaranteed. Can you battle your way through the massive world that is Halo, defeat the Covenant, and save humanity?

Halo 2600 Review by: Marcmoney - 6.5/10

Halo 2600 Review
Overall - 6.5

This Halo game on the Atari is just so messed up.  I did not enjoy it because you can't use any guns and all you can do is move and open doors.  I am a Halo fan and what I think about it is that it is not fair.

Graphics - 8

The graphics were not that bad.  It looked like an arcade game for a Halo game on the XBOX 360. :P

Sound - 8

The sound is okay, there is just no songs in the game. :S

Addictiveness - 4

I wouldn't play it much, though, it is Halo.  I might try it again and see if I can get better at it.

Story - N/A

There is no story in this game.

Depth - 6

There is just not a lot of things in this game.  First off, if you touch the wall, you die.  How stupid is that? :S Second of all, you can't shoot.  It just sounds like a hacked game that is impossible to beat, but it is not.

Difficulty - 7

I would not say that the game is very hard, but it is a little difficult.  You need to be a good dodger to play this game. :P

Wrap Things Up...

Halo is very famous and this game must have gotten people talking about making a good game out of it.  I would not recommend trying this game out, but you may try it out if you want if you are a Halo fan. :)

 This is where Halo started. Xbox Fan boys like me wouldn't play this.

 Clever, and it makes you jump around!
Dark sword Z 10-25-14 - 12:42 PM

xtroidhunter12 06-13-14 - 02:26 PM
 everyone complaining about the gun not being in's there,go up a screen when you start
mgharper94 05-16-14 - 01:39 PM
 if you beat the game once, you get legendary mode :)

 A great 2600 game
Sephirothxxxxxx.. 11-26-13 - 08:57 AM
 I wish people would not treat this game so poorly. It's a great game by 2600 standards. You can bet that if it came out in the 80s everyone would have it.
mgharper94 07-17-13 - 02:29 PM
 this was actually made by the former VP of microsoft gaming company and was at a gaming expo with a limited amount of cartridges so, yeah this is a real game the final version is better though.
PoundDotBlam 07-03-13 - 01:32 PM
 Great game... I love the initial screen... people that didn't get the gun and rage on the game are funny.
shadowscynthe 06-22-13 - 10:37 AM
 is this a mod? surely, if it were real, it would say Bungie.
BeGood,LoveMom 06-16-13 - 02:40 PM
 but on the bad side... you'l restart the game soooo never mind
BeGood,LoveMom 06-16-13 - 02:37 PM
 if you press number 2 you can basiclly never die because it'l give you an extra life only works if you don't still have both lives
