Legacy of the Beast is an Atari 2600 game inspired by the Amiga classic Shadow of the Beast, developed by Reflections and published by Psygnosis in 1989.

Written entirely in 6502 Assembly, the intention was to deconstruct yet remain as faithful to the original as technically possible given the capabilities of a system originally released in 1977.

Massive non-linear areas to explore, and battle various enemy types and traps.

Runs on physical Atari 2600 NTSC systems, and Stella, Gopher2600, OpenEMU or other Atari 2600/VCS compatible emulators.

Standard 4K, NTSC

Controls: Left and Right to move player. Down to crouch.
Up or Fire to enter doors. Fire to punch.
Reset to begin game.
