Atari A to Z: Kaboom!

One of Activision’s most fondly regarded games from the Atari 2600 library is Kaboom! — a simple affair that gratuitously rips off Atari’s own Avalanche, because apparently Atari had very little interest in porting that themselves.

Kaboom! also got a port to Atari 8-bit, and it’s a good ‘un. The enhancements over the original 2600 version may be fairly subtle, but they all add to the experience, making for a straightforward but enormously addictive little game that you’ll find yourself spending a surprising amount of time with if you let it get its claws in.

One thought on “Atari A to Z: Kaboom!”

  1. I think the comparison of Kaboom! to rhythm games is spot on and I never considered it before. When I get into the zone it tends to be more about keeping that flow going rather than what I’m actually doing, if that makes sense! 🙂
