The 2600 Connection newsletter has started a new era... well, sort of , in a way...

Today, I am proud to announce the "publishing" of the first PDF file which I have posted on the web site today.
(You will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to view / print the document.)

It's a review of CAVE IN and it looks like a page out of the 2600 Connection printed newsletter... I designed it that way.

It is only 1 page. Maybe the future PDF files will be more than 1 page.

My idea for "the new era" is to offer the PDF files for free, and let anyone and everyone print then out and distribute them.

I hope to have more PDF files up in the future.

Check out the Cave In review:

Enjoy!

Tim

Tim,

thanks for the article. It looks like a really good game.

I found that Evince in Linux opens the article and prints it quite well too.

I look forward to more articles in the future.

P.S. Are you still selling back issues in print?

Nice to see you still around Tim, the 2600 Connection was one of the big reasons I got back into Atari in 92-93.

Cheers,
Ben

Glad to be "back"

It is certainly still a great hobby...
