Vic Sage who is very active here on The Retroist has his own site, called In my youth, victory was a power pellet. It is great site filled with Video Game fun. Yesterday he posted a great concept for an Atari 2600 game, Kolchak: The Nightstalker. Not only did he mock up the cartridge for this “Rare” title, but he also managed to get Peachy to put together a tune for the game. It was a pretty advanced game for the 2600, especially for 1978. No wonder it is so hard to find. Well I was digging through my collection this morning and found a copy and made some screenshots of the game, so you can get an idea of how it played. They must have used special chips for this game, because it has some amazing features, including a splash screen.
