Status: Existence Unconfirmed

Edu Games was an Argentine game company that produced pirated carts of existing Atari 2600 games throughout the 1980s, and seemingly early 1990s. While several of their games have been identified as to what they're clones of, 18 of their games haven't been identified as any already existing game out there. These games have not been dumped as of yet, and no copies have been known to circulate, which end up questioning Atari 2600 fans on whether, or not these games even exist. To this day, there are no screenshots, nor scans available for these 18 games, and the only website to acknowledge the existence of these games is Atarimania.[1]

It is most likely that these pirated games only have the company logos omitted, & possibly replaced with the Edu Games logo, as was common for Brazilian, & Argentine companies who released Atari 2600 cartridges. A commenter known as Guillermo A. Martinez would later confirm that the brand did exist, & their games came in 2 style of boxes. The first design was of multiple 70s illustrations like of clowns, military men, a young boy, etc. The second design was similar to the boxes for the consoles, being dark green with a picture of a family with a TV.
