Brainwagon Radio: Retro Programming on the Atari 2600

September 7, 2005 | Brainwagon Radio, My Projects | By: Mark VandeWettering

Mostly this podcast concerns itself with my latest geeky project: writing programs for the old atari 2600. Why would anyone do this? Have a listen! Hear the sense of childish joy I take in wasting my time!

In the podcast I mentioned my implementation of PDP-1 simulator so I could run the original Spacewar! game (a video game which is just barely older than I am). I thought I’d provide this link to it.

Eventually, I’ll have binary images of my “game” available that you can run on Stella. If youa re impatient, you should just grab a copy of it and start writing one yourself. 🙂
