New Atari 5200 Homebrew - Venture

This has been found in the "wild."  A version of Venture for the Atari 5200.  The game looks, sounds, and plays great.  Here are some screen grabs and the binary is attached below.

Yes it has.  Apparently it had some changes made when compared to the 8-Bit version.

Here is a video. Looks like the arcade style of the monsters disappearing was added. Some animations were happening when the treasures were on the screen. But not exactly the same as the arcade. Maybe this version can be released back to the 8-bit.
