AARON THE AANT for the Odyssey2



Hi! I'm Aaron. I'm an aant.
No, not an ant, but an aAnt -
that’s with two “A’s.”
Aand you gotta help me...
You see, I'm aawfully hungry, 
and I'm in my aanthill here. 
Some really aawesome aapples 
keep popping up in my aanthill...
This is really nice for me, 
since I love to eat aapples.
So what's the problem? 
Aadolf, a mean, evil aardvark,
is hungry as well, it aappears...
Why not feed him some aapples? 
He doesn't like them - Why? 
Aadolf would rather feast on delicious aants! 
Wait a second - I'm an aant!
He'll eat me! He'll take his tongue and burrow it in the
hole and eat me! I know, it's not very nice for him to do
this, but it is nature's way... Too bad for me!
Can you help me get my fill of aapples while I aavoid
Aadolf the aardvark's tongue?
How many aapples can
I eat before I become Aadolf the aardvark’s dinner?

FATSO! for the Odyssey2



Eat all the cookies! Eat all the pretzels! Eat all you can and you'll be fine. 
Sounds easy, right? You must avoid eating the pink pickles. 
Avoid them because they're deadly! 
The object of FATSO! is to eat all of the foods without eating a pink pickle...
Eat a pink pickle and the game is over!
How many calories can you amass?

2600 Connection is proud to offer the Odyssey2/Videopac game from Chris Read - FATSO!  Previously known for his Atari VCS/2600 games (Gosub, Alien Greed, Stacker, Zyx), FATSO! is Chris' first game for the Odyssey2, inspired by the Telesys Atari VCS/2600 game Fast Food.

A limited run of 30 boxed copies of FATSO! were first produced and sold by Marc Verraes (www.videopac.fr) in May 2012.  After those sold, a second edition of 26 more were sold (each cartridge denoted with a letter of A through Z). Fast forward to 2014. When Marc asked 2600 Connection about releasing another run of WILDLIFE!, we worked out a deal so we could release an unlimited, unnumbered version of FATSO!

Now we are happy to allow gamers who missed out on this game to purchase one.  It's the same game and manual, except it does not have a serial number. The label has a little different style and the manual has some additional text. We call this the unlimited release of FATSO!  So what are you waiting for?  Put on your "eating pants" and get yours today!


In FATSO!, you move the blue mouth around with the joystick.
Food appears from the left and moves towards the right.
In the screen above, a deadly pink pickle has just been avoided.

NICE ICE! for the Odyssey2



It's almost Christmas... it will be here before you know it! However...
Do you know about the mischief that's going on up at the North Pole?


Oh no! Eli the Elf has freed Santa's reindeer and now they have flown to the other side of Santa's magic pool.

What's worse is that Santa doesn't even know how to swim!  Lucky for him, there are floating chunks of ice that Santa can use to cross the pool and rescue the reindeer back to safety.  But that evil Eli the Elf will try to stop Santa because he hates Christmas!  How many reindeer can you help Santa save?

NICE ICE was programmed by Chris Read.  Scott Stilphen is handling the production of cartridges and Tim Duarte is handling production of the manuals and labels.  A limited run of 100 serial-numbered cartridges of NICE ICE! will be produced that are compatible with both NTSC and PAL systems.  Each game will include a professional-styled color manual. 
Artwork for the manual cover and cartridge label was created and designed by Timothy Cotter.




NICE ICE! features a nifty title screen.




Santa plans how to avoid Eli and rescue the reindeer.




So close to completing his mission, but Eli stands in the way!
