Re: Doubt about reviews and emulation

Yes mostly, but sometimes something can be lost with emulation. I just released two new Space invaders games for the Atari 2600 that push the video and audio. They look and sound great in emulation but you'll need either a classic console or the Retron 77 console upgraded to Stella 6 for the best au...

Re: 2018/5/31: Atari 2600: Super Cobra, Super Cobra Arcade

Critc, you are deluded. I bought Super Cobra the first day it was out and it is a fantastic game considering what system it was on and when it was released. Okay the scrolling is not great but for the time it is fantastic plus I think it is a 4k game. Maybe it has 8k. Put that next to the one from ...

Re: The Boxes

Awesome thread! :) Really liked the Grandstand PC-50X, never saw that one. Agree about the diversity of imagery on the Atari box - tremendously intriguing. Made me want to buy it. Good point about the crossover where the Atari says computer instead of videogame system on the box - here is a book I l...

Re: Homerun (Atari 2600)

Re: Homerun (Atari 2600)

VideoGameCritic, awesome you are revisiting homerun and also looking at factors like it's 1.84KB size! That is really significant for an Atari game - the isometric Activision Tennis game is also pretty awesome at 2K you should take another look at that one too imo - always had a blast playing it.

Re: New BASIC Programming for the Atari 2600

I love this line, "Virtual World BASIC lets you make Atari games that take place in a virtual world ten times larger than the Television screen." Thanks ActRaiser! Many vintage BASIC's have commands for plotting pixels on the screen with x,y coordinates, Virtual World BASIC allows the pro...
