A while ago I came across Ivan's (LS_Dracon) Donkey Kong demo for the 2600 and was totally blown away. I'm usually not so fond of flickering tricks, but if a version with such graphics had existed back in the day I would have gone crazy, flicker or not.
So, I thought, why not try and program a title screen with these techniques. Turn's out the 2600 can actually come quite close to the arcade version. Left ist the VCS version in Stella, on the right a screenshot taken in MAME.
If I find some time over the weekend I will program the rest
