Games for Atari 5200

Atari 5200 (also known as Atari 5200 SuperSystem) is the second home video game console made by Atari and a successor to Atari 2600. The console was created to compete with much more advanced Atari 2600 competitors: ColecoVision and Intellivision. However, the system was highly unpopular and was discontinued after two years on the market selling only about 1 million units while its predecessor was still getting support from the developers. The console was criticized for its bulky design, imprecise and fragile controllers and shallow game library but praised for its powerful hardware for the time, and such innovations as start and pause buttons and four controller ports. Only 69 games were released for the system most of which were updated versions of the 2600 titles. The system was based on Atari 8-bit home computers and featured and had the very reminiscent hardware.
