Freeway - An Atari 2600 to C64 port by Arlasoft gets a release

We've featured many Atari 2600 to C64 conversions and ports through the years, from Spider Fighter, to Keystone Kapers and even our personal favorite Frostbite. Well here's some good news to get us through this Monday which has been developed by Arlasoft, is the Atari 2600 to C64 conversion/port of Freeway; a video game written by David Crane for the Atari 2600 and published by Activision in 1981, in which you need to get your chicken(s) across the road as many times as possible for a high score.

As noted by the creator who is also working on the upcoming C64 game of Galaga; In Freeway you have 136 seconds to get your chicken across the road as many times as possible. When there are less than 8 seconds left the scores will flash. There are various levels to play with different amounts and speeds of traffic, and two difficulty settings. Do be aware however unlike the Atari 2600 version which features two players of chicken fun, in this version it also contains a rudimentary AI as this was purely a 2-player game on the 2600.

  1. I'm jealous of how many virtual sprites are seen here! Sorry to post regarding my own stuff but have you seen Dragon Chalice for the Atari 2600 yet? Wanted to tell you about it but can't find a great contact method.
