Good reviews I esp liked the one for the rather underwhelming looking flying ace.  The landing instructions were great.  Yeh FA was geat and back in the day those two stages were huge.  I played one XGES/XL game when It was a stretch of road for a racing game.  Say about a mile and then it ended.  That was it.  I am fairly certain it was Speed run.  Now that was a short game.

The graphics for "Flying Ace" look like they would be mediocre on the Atari 2600.

Fort Apocalypse is a fantastic classic computer game- a great combination if Choplifter, Super Cobra, and maybe some other games. I'm terrible at it, but it's still great fun.

Dimension X is cool to look at, but maybe not as great as a game.

You should review "Alley Cat" for 8-bit you get a chance sometime.

I actually have an Atari XEGS but I don't have the floppy player. I have found it nearly impossible to find any Atari computer floppies in the wild. VGC, where have you found them? I would love to re-hook up my system but I just don't know where to get the floppy games.

I get many from Ebay, but you should also check out the Atari sites in my links section.
