Pitfall II: Lost Caverns is the only game that is 10K in size, because of the special 2K Display Processor Chip (DPC) added to the 8K ROM. The chip was created by David Crane and allowed four channel music (as opposed to the Atari 2600's standard two channels) and enhanced graphics. David Crane had intended to use the DPC as a way to provide games that were more technologically advanced than previous games, but due to the Great Video Game Crash, it was only used in Pitfall II.
