We’ve featured many Atari 2600 to C64 and Atari XL/XE conversions and ports throughout the years, from Spider Fighter, to Keystone Kapers and even our personal favorite Frostbite. Well here’s some more good news to get us through this Tuesday which has been developed by Glurk, is the Atari 2600 to Atari XL/XE 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.

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 C64 port which was released by Arlasoft, this version gives you the option to choose a level, and set the difficulty for each player!
