The Supercharger is an add-on for the Atari 2600, released by Starpath Corporation (formerly Arcadia) in 1982. It expanded the console's RAM from 128 bytes to 6,272 bytes, allowing for larger, more advanced games stored in tape cassettes. 12 titles were released for it, and there are 2 known unreleased prototypes.

The Starpath Supercharger List[]

Box Art Title Genre Description
Supercharger Dragonstomper box art.jpg Dragonstomper RPG The first console RPG. While a lot of its appeal is pure novelty, there is a rather lot you can do for a seriously small Atari 2600 game. It is still one of the best games by the standards of the Atari 2600, but it's often overlooked.

Supercharger Frogger box art.jpg Frogger Action Far more faithful to the arcade than Parker Bros' cartridge-based version.
Supercharger Stella Gets A New Brain box art.jpg Stella Gets A New Brain! Compilation The most essential thing if you have an actual Supercharger: an audio/data CD with all the games, and a bunch of extras.
