Before there was Mario Kart, there was Mystery Cart:

Mystery cart!

Shelby found this Atari 2600 cart lodged in the floor under an eighty-pound steel plate at the new Resistor space.  Other than a ’78 copyright, there’s no indication of what game it might be.  Anyone care to make a guess before we hook it up and read the ROM?

  1. ET, you found the hidden stash

  2. I'll bet on the ubiquitous BreakOut

  3. you randomly move to new digs, see an eighty-pound steel plate, you happen to pop it open and find an Atari cart there?? How is that possible?

  4. What? you don't have a spare 2600 lying around ? I guess I could send you mine 🙂

  5. my guess would be “Jungle Fever”

  6. I've got the chip hooked up to an arduino and have dumped the contents to hex. Get your guesses in now! 🙂

  7. I remember a game Canyon Bomber (?) was that Atari or ColecoVision? How about Centipede?

  8. Some things weren't meant to be found. It was under that plate for a reason.

  9. Well, what was it?
