Mattel Aquarius


Mattel Aquarius Software

Software for the Mattel Aquarius was available on cartridge and cassette tape. So far, I have 17 unique cartidges and 36 cassette tapes in my collection. Always looking for more! Select a title from the left-hand bar to learn more about the software.

Cartridge software

Although a cassette tape drive was available, commercial software programs was also released on cartridges, which plug into the cartridge port on the back of the system. Inside the cartridge, there are just a few ROM chips with the program already burned in. By having 8Kb or 16 KB games reside in a ROM cartridge it was possible to get around the limited 1,7K RAM memory of the Aquarius system.
