Halo 2600 goes far beyond any other retro gaming mock-up we’ve ever seen. For one, its actually playable in cartridge form on an actual Atari 2600. Secondly, and even cooler, you can play the game online with a little help from emulation.
Developed by Ed Fries, the once vice president of Microsoft’s game publishing division who assisted in the signing of Bungie Software to a first-party development deal with Microsoft, Halo 2600 was both a return to form and a new added challenge for Mr. Fries. Programming for the 2600 is no easy task compared to its 800 counterpart. Only about 100 cartridges were made available at the Classic Gaming Expo, so this was a very limited edition project.
