Task: Download the Atari 8-Bit ROM Collection by Ghostware
Needed: Web browser
Time: 5-10 mins
There are tons of game and utility ROMs available online for download. We have previously posted about the Atarimania resource, for example. Downloading multiple ROMs can be tedious. Fortunately, there are some collections out there providing numerous ROMs for download. One of these is the Atari800 ROM collection by Ghostware available on the Internet Archive. There are nearly 5500 games available in this archive. Have fun!
Navigate to the ROM collection and download.
This is an amazing collection. You would be hard pressed to think of a game not in this archive. Unfortunately, the archive does not include other types of software such as programming languages and utilities. I did notice some educational software included.
