World of Warcraft on Atari 2600… Now Real

One of Blizzard’s April Fools Jokes was a 2600 version of World of Warcraft. Leave it to the gaming community to make it a reality. While not technically a 2600 title (it’s not playable on an emulator), the Windows version is now available for download. The massive, hard drive filling 2MB file will net you about 20 minutes of gameplay, and graphics more sophisticated than the real thing.*

The Molten Core as it’s called is a two-player adventure, so grab a friend for this one. Hey, it has to be as authentic as possible, right?

*That wasn’t a joke.
