I could swear I had this Atari 2600 emulator on my Power Mac 6100/66
back in the day. But I cannot locate it or even remember the name. It's
like it perished from the surface of earth. It's not "Stella", which was
released later. It ran it on System 7.5 (I think!) and it was rather
bare-bones but played the games. I think I found it through a mention in
a print magazine, but no luck finding that article either.

Does someone remember the name or knows where to find it?

Any help appreciated!

Are you sure it was an actual emulator? There are some Atari 2600 game
packs which ran on System 7+, such as:

- Activision's Atari 2600 Action Pack
<https://macintoshgarden.org/games/activisions-atari-2600-action-pack>

- Activision's Atari 2600 Action Pack 2
<https://macintoshgarden.org/games/activisions-atari-2600-action-pack-2>

According to the blog page below, these game packs can also be altered
to run any Atari 2600 ROM:
