Games for Jaguar

Atari Jaguar is a home video game console made by Atari and a successor to Atari 7800 and Atari XEGS. It was marketed the first 64-bit console which was a questionable statement due to only the system’s co-processor being 64-bit while the central processor was 32-bit. Because of that, the system was criticized for its misleading market, shallow game library and an awkward controller which ultimately led to lackluster sales of the console with about 250,000 units sold worldwide and subsequent Atari leaving the console market. The Atari Jaguar gamepad featured a D-pad and 17 face buttons, 12 of which had a phone-like layout similar to that of Atari 5200 controller. 63 games were officially released for the system. 13 of them required a Jaguar CD add-on which was released in 1995 with the intention to attract new player base and prolong the console’s lifespan. The console had several critically-acclaimed games such as Alien vs. Predator and Tempest 2000. In the late 90s, the console was released into public domain resulting in console gaining popularity in the homebrew scene.
