    Have you ever said to yourself:
    Gee, I really love taking on the role of Master Chief saving the universe,
    but I wish Halo wasn't a first person shooter with such grossly overblown graphics. [​IMG]

    Well do I have news for you!
    Now you can slay legions of Elite in soothingly nostalgic 8-bit glory in

    Halo 2600.


    Finally, we get the chance to gun down unidentifiable sprites again!
    This takes me back to the glory days of impressing my dad by beating Raiders of the Lost Ark.
    The 80's were so radical, dude. [​IMG]

    EDIT: My favorite part is how they use the exact same keys as those found in the game "Adventure".

    Better than Halo 3 since at least my little brother and his retarded friends can't spend days making a shopping mall on this one in that god-forsaken Forge.

    Pretty fun; and like all simplistic games, whether DOS, Atari or whatever else, apparently highly addictive. I'd been playing for about 15 minutes by the time I realized I had other stuff to do. [​IMG]

    Nice find!
    The game is fun to play and the story behind it's creation is quite interesting.
