Seems like a fair price for a download. Maybe I will wait for the movie.

Looks like the cart release will become real.  I still haven't downloaded it, though!  Need to try it out!

When I first heard of this game I was not sure what to think. Are Atari fans really asking for these types of games?

There are all sorts of games being developed for the 2600.  Some are simple, others are more complex.  This is this programmers first attempt using Batari Basic.  Looks like the game is fun from what folks are saying, so that is encouraging for someone who just released a game for the first time.  :)

Ok, I am still trying to keep up with games released in the last century. So many new games coming out. Glad you are keeping us updated TrekMD.

That is good I just do not see much that I like coming out on the modern consoles.

I don't play modern consoles at all, the games just don't appeal to me. I like something I can pick up and play not spend a week on just to complete 1 level.
