Fixing E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial for the Atari 2600
« on: April 05, 2013, 05:41:13 PM »
This is a fun read that I think many will enjoy, that will shed some light on why so many hated this classic game, and how it was a game that was actually ahead of its time.

And if you follow along with your hex editor and E.T. rom, you'll find out just how to fix it, to make it more fun.

If you're reading this page, chances are that you're already well aware that E.T. for the Atari 2600 is one of the most reviled games ever made. I never understood why. As a child, it was one of my favorite games. I still think it's a good game. Apparently, I'm not alone.

On this page I'm going to briefly explore why people hate E.T., and how the game can be fixed.
