AtariAge launch new games for Atari 8-Bit consoles

AtariAge have launched several new*. cartridges for the Atari 2600, 5200 and 7800 consoles. They say:

We have now added these new games to the AtariAge Store, and you can order them today! We’ll work hard to make sure any games you order in November will arrive in time for Christmas if you’re in the US. Outside the US shipping times are a bit more unpredictable, but the earlier you order, the better your odds.

The new games are:
