Looks almost as boring as the library level from the actual game.

I'm not sure who this was directed at, because what Halo fan is highbrow enough to appreciate the finer qualities of the 2600? Maybe I'm just not drinking enough Mountain Dew Game Fuel to understand.
5 minutes of this shit? I really have no want to ever touch an Atari game console ever again.
The mouse pointer in the bottom corner really threw me off when it started to move at the end.
Isn't there too many colors for it to be a legit Atari game?
No, it's a real game. He even had the binary burned to EPROM and made cartridges.
I would totally buy that cartridge.
The Atari 2600 could show 128 colors on screen simultaneously. The hardware only supported 4 colors per scan line, although you might have been able to work around that some.
Notice that Master Chief's faceplate is always the same color as the walls. He's probably using the "ball" sprite to draw it, and the ball sprite is the same color as the playfield foreground. Otherwise the faceplate would have to be the same color as the part of the head or the enemy sprite (or the tree, etc.) on the same scan line, or the background. Because those are the four colors you get.
Oh, and there were only 128 colors available on NTSC televisions. PAL and SECAM had fewer.
