Classic Atari Games Updated with Realistic Titles

What would classic Atari games of yesteryear look like if the titles were a bit more realistic? One garage sale haul and some Photoshop work later, we can take a peek at some updated box art.

Over at MightGodKing they took a pile of mint condition Atari 2600 game boxes, scored at a garage sale, and put them under the Photoshop knife to update the titles to more accurate versions. Hit up the link below for dozens of gems including “Terrorists In The Year 3000″ and “Dude, We Shouldn’t Have Done that Acid, My Hands Feel Like Twizzlers… Oh, Man, Twizzlers”.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.
