As I wrote previously, I’m considering taking a stab at programming Atari 2600 games for fun and _. May just update helpful links here:
- Atari 2600 Programming for Newbies, plus, the associated book in PDF format
- Creating a game for Atari 2600 in 2022 — side note: your paywall sucks, Medium, especially for the level of content you get these days
- Learn Assembly Language by Making Games for the Atari 2600

I LOVE these early video game mags. A nostalgic walk through my childhood…
One of my 2023 goals is to rank on the Twin Galaxies records boards. I’m likely going to have to do it in what I call the “Tim Ferris way” though – by technicality haha…
Then again, there are a lot of really high scores already, at least for the games I currently own. Maybe I’ll just have to shoot for next-to-last rank for Gopher on the Atari 2600.
