Atari 2600 Confrontation is an intriguing strategy game that, while never officially released in stores, was briefly available directly from Answer Software.
This game made a secretive debut at the 1983 CES show, and only those who attended and witnessed its display could have known to order it, placing it in a unique category just shy of being a prototype. Describing the gameplay has been a challenge, but I’ve found the most accurate portrayal in Leonard Herman’s ‘ABC’s to the VCS’—a highly recommended read for enthusiasts.
Confrontation employs a clever programming technique allowing it to display numerous objects on the screen simultaneously, though screenshots might misleadingly show only one player’s pieces at any given time. Rest assured, the game’s complexity is fully realized on-screen.
