    Default Yar's Return?

    I've heard rumors of an improved version of Yar's Return, the Yar's Revenge hack, floating around (maybe even as a cartridge).

    Looks like this site might have a link to it, but the links to zip files appear to be broken. (Although the links to bin files work just fine.)

    Does anyone know of a way I can find this game?

    As far as I know, the only version that exists in widespread form is the version that was included with the Flashback 2. I believe the improved version you mention was going to be released with an updated Flashback console, or a portable Flashback system, both of which have yet to materialize. If you did a search over on Atari Age, I think you could find more information like this: http://www.atariage.com/forums/index...owtopic=105125

    Yes, there were fixed versions of Yar's Return, Asteroids Deluxe, and Arcade Pong sent to Atari but they are still sitting on them. I hope to see them released one day.
    Take care,

    Kind of wish that link on this site worked to the Yar's Return rom. (Even if it's not the final version, I would like to try it out.) But while I was searching the net, I did find this modern update of the original game for PC...

    It's a free download, so hopefully other Yar fans will like it.
