Atari Game Covers Re-Worked to Tell the Truth

Atari Game Covers Re-Worked to Tell the Truth

Kotaku points us today in the direction of an old—but good—collection of re-workings of a few dozen old Atari 2600 game covers. They desperately needed it—the covers for these hyper-primitive collections of pixels that used to pass for games usually featured detailed artwork, the equivalent of putting a Van Gogh on the cover of Modern Warfare.

That said, no one would have bought the games if they had been able to see what they actually looked like. Head over to Mighty God King for the full gallery.
