5-in-1 Atari 2600 Homebrew Compilation 'Piñata' Released

Pinata-Atari-2600If the Atari 2600 is your thing, then get ready for a hefty helping of homebrew hits. Piñata is the latest compilation to hit the classic system, featuring five different recent creations from homebrew developer Cybearg including Heartbreak, Ping, Joyride, Flipside Sr, and a de-make of Wreck It Ralph's Fix-It Felix arcade game.

Piñata was recently released on the AtariAge forums as a free download and has been reported to not only work in an Atari 2600 emulator, but also on the original hardware using a Harmony flash cartridge. Each game within Cybearg's new release seems to be of the highest quality, each of which making the most of the dated hardware within Atari's console.

Piñata Features:

  • Five games, including arcade, action, and adventure: Heartbreak, Ping, Joyride, Fix-It Felix Sr., and Flipside.
  • Hard modes for each game, set with left difficulty switch.
  • Multiplayer modes for Joyride and Flipside, set with right difficulty switch.
  • Driving controller support for Heartbreak.
  • Full AtariVox save support for all games.
  • Support for resetting high scores (hold reset and press joystick fire while on the title menu).
  • Colorful game selection and credits screens.
  • Ability to exit to title screen from games without toggling power switch (flip select and reset at the same time).
