Puchased it being a nostalga nut. I was an arcade nut, scraping up as many quarters as possible to put into those darned machines.

Also, the Atari 2600 was my first gaming console and I had a LOT of fun with it.

The only problem with this port is the virtual controls. The virtual joystick just doesn't work well with all the games. Adventure is definitely one of them. It's VERY hard to get the "knight" to move correctly and get your sword situated correctly. Moving through the maze is even worse, especially if the dragon is on your tail!

But, overall, still a neat and worthy addition to the Android marketplace.

Call me when MAME is working on Android.  Atari 2600 games are too craptacular to be worth the effort.

Being able to play Adventure again would proably not be as good as I would hope for. All I really want to do is finally stick it to the damn red dragon.
