Atari question for the children of 80s

As a child of the 80s,I spent quite a bit of my childhood playing Atari games. Now there was this very cool game * goes home. I can't recal the name of the game but can't. There were many games of which I can not recal the name.

I know some memories are better left in the head,but I would like to play those games. Would bring nice childhood memories. Can someone put down the list of atari games popular in Pakistan in early 90s?

you can find a complete list of games for Atari on wiki:

I googled a bit before posting this question,could’t find the game…

A little description of the game would be helpful in identifying

A wild guess maybe - ET goes home, which wasn't cool at all...

Well there was this character whose name I can't recal(it was't et goes home),and the the character would jump and avoid things. And there was a clif(khadda) in the middle ..And when the character would eventually reach the other side he used to walk home gladly and a wonderful music(good memories from the childhood) used to play..(anyone?)

Found it: Bobby is Going Home

Here you go

looks like a "kool" game, mind telling the system requiremtents.. :P

^:lol:

You know that kind of thing makes me think that it was the technology of about 30 years ago and this was the coolest thing around at that time. Now we take it as a joke. Will a time come when extremely cool games of today will look like jokes too??? :/

Yes, just install Stella, an Atari 2600 emulator and it’s free. I am also using it.

Thanks for the link of Atari Games. It really brings back the good old times. Bye the way there is no age limit for gamers. I have played games on Atari, ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 & 128, IBM PC AT/XT, PCs and PS/2.
