Here is a video I made of my Atari 2600 experiment.  I have two Atari 2600 consoles, each with the Compumate add-on.  I attempt to share a BASIC program from one Atari to another wirelessly.

 

Enjoy!

Cool experiment! :) That adventure game looks really interesting. I wonder if there were Compumate user groups like with the Bally Astrocade, it would be awesome if there were a bunch of Compumate games from the 80's somewhere.

 

 

Are those Brazilian Compumates clones or a variation like the Canal Supercharger?

can you save and load during a program, make a turn based game playable wirelessly on the 2600 would be glorious
