    Hmm a bit unusual but not out of the question. I was programming BASIC at age 5 or 6. Kids have learned ancient Greek younger than that!

    I remember gorillas, that quality game. I also remember nibbles (the original snake). It was in blue but I'm sure you could change it if you wanted.

    Fantastic days they were. Adjusting the controls on your cassette player trying to get a game to load for about 3 hours were the highlight of my day.
    well this is true, the fact that you had to work so hard to get some crappy game to work made the game that much more enjoyable!

    Indeed. Can you remember the Amiga days, everyone had about 500 games but each of them had been played only once and discarded. Gone are the Atari 2600 days when all we had was pacman but could play it 72 hours straight.
    nooo, they have brought out an atari gamepad with all the original atari games except joust, my alltime favourite!
