The Bad Apple video has been made to display on many retro systems, such as the Sega Megadrive, Gameboy Color, NES, Pokemon Mini, and IBM PC. I've also written a version for the TI-84+ SE calculator. I decided to try my hand at making one for the Atari 2600.
- 3:40 of monochrome video
- 40x32 resolution at 20FPS
- 512KiB 3F ROM
- Lossless compression - video data fits in under 390KiB as opposed to 685KiB uncompressed.
- Kernel capable of displaying at 60FPS
Unfortunately, there is no sound. The melody to the song has a very wide range, though, so I don't think it would sound good on the 2600's sound hardware anyways. The ROM is attached if you want to try it out. I've only tested it on emulators, so try it on real hardware at your own risk.
