I am Christopher A. Haslage, co-owner of Haslage Net Electronics. My company is in the development stage of making a game for the Gameboy Advance, called "Atari 2600 B-Sides" (tentative title). Infogrames has indicated that they will allow use of certain Atari titles in the product, and have encouraged further development of the concept.

They want us to comprise a list of games that are from the Atari 2600 that we wish to use. Their only guideline is that the games listed could not have any "heavy hitters" that they would like to publish themselves (such as Pac-Man, Space Invaders, etc...).

What we want to do is make a nice multi-cart with the original Atari 2600 feel but in hand-held form. Here is some games that have been suggested already (feel free to mention these carts in your lists as well):

* Dodge'Em
* Journey Escape
* BMX Airmaster
* Qb

Andrew Davie has shown interest in this project and has allowed us to use Qb as an Easter-Egg option, which makes us very estatic to have one of the best games for the Atari 2600 made in the last few years (and even the past decade).

Mainly we need a list of games that would be fun and worthy of the GBA. If everyone can come up of a list of 25-50 games, we can then see which are the best choices overall and then go from there. You don't have to come up with 25-50 choices, you can go as high or as low as you want in your list. We are just trying to be as impartial as possible and see what everyone likes.

Hope to hear from everyone soon!
