Everything new is old: Atari 2600 Mega Man

Thought your collection of old school NES Mega Man cartridges was hardcore?  Try this on for size: Mega Man for the the Atari 2600.  Avalible for download at Atari Age’s Forums, this short but neat demo was created by David Galloway for iam8bit in 2007 and has only recently released to the public.

The demo only has one level consisting of four vertically scrolling screens, and a boss – but it’s pretty cool.  A full sized Megaman game in this style would have been awesome in Atari’s golden years – it’s almost too bad there are no plans to make a full game out of this.   Hit the jump for a playthrough video  and peek at Elecman.
