Well, I do know of one game for the trackball on the 2600, although
probably unintentional.  Activision Decathalon works very well in
trackball mode, with the rate of your spinning directly correlating to
the speed of your runner.  It actually makes the 1500-yard run
bearable, although the other events become a bit too easy.
