Dark Cavern Black (Atari 2600)


In the early days of Atari the upper management wanted to show that the Atari 2600 was a COLOR Video Game System. This seems to have been picked up by other developers as well.

The result? No game would be released without a colored background. This led to the bright colored backgrounds in most of the early releases. These backgrounds can lead to blurred images and eyestrain.

The solution? Change the backgrounds to black. The black background gives the game more of an 80's arcade look and makes the graphics stand out better.

Play the game the way it should have been. DARK CAVERN BLACK!!
Original Dark Cavern
Even space games had a non-black background.

The same game as the original M-Network release for the Atari 2600. The only change is the background color and some new original label artwork.

The original Dark Cavern had a blue background. This is suppose to be a DARK cavern, why would they ever release it with a blue background?

Dark Cavern Black
Now you can play Dark Cavern with a black background on your Atari 2600.

Limited Edition release Late July/August 2016
