dayeight writes "Here's some info on a new Atari 2600 RPG, which is still early in development, and is developed by Paul Slocum, the genius who gave us the Synthcart (previous story) and Marble Craze." There's a downloadable demo ROM for this currently untitled game on the site, and the title's projected feature set includes "a large world, comparable in size to early Ultima series", plus the ability to "fight enemies from other Atari 2600 games."

Speaker: With the Degenatron, you can play video games just like you are in the Arcade.
Kids: Excellent!
Backing: Degenatron!
Speaker: The degenatron gaming system plays three exciting games including Defender of the Faith where you save the green dots with your fantastic flying red square.
Kids: Cool!
Speaker: Monkey's Paradise where you swing from green dot to green dot with your red square monkey.
Kids: That's rad!
Speaker: And Penatrator where you smash the green dots deep inside the mysterious red square.
Kids: Wow!

after looking at the screen shots, i can say i would have easily purchased this in the 80's when the game 'Adventure' felt like the walls were closing in.
