Colony 7 – Atari 2600 Homebrew

Colony 7 is an original Atari 2600 homebrew game published by AtariAge:

This is Colony 7. Jarvian hostiles sighted inbound. Non combatant personnel are retreating to shuttle bay. We are preparing to defend position. City-wide shield is active. Gun emplacements are standing by. Special Weapon is primed. We will not retreat. We will survive.

Your mission is to defend Colony 7 from the evil Jarvians. Wave after wave of enemy fighters strafe the Colony’s defensive shield, attempting to break through. You’re in command of the Colony’s defensive guns, unleashing a converging stream of laser fire at the attacking hordes. You must wipe out the invading craft before either the cannons or the entire Colony are destroyed.

    My thoughts exactly; Missle Command + Atlantis + Star Master. I would have definately bought this if it was released back in the day, great game play, strategy and graphics.

    I love how these homebrew games are so much better looking than official Atari games.

    reminds me off missile command, but this has cooler stuff to protect

    Will this game work with a trackball controller?

    in a lot of ways, this reminds me of Stratos, which was published by Adventure International…
