the publisher of the magazine, Atari klub - spolek příznivců historické výpočetní techniky (Association of Historical Computing Enthusiasts), proudly announces FLOP 62, a second issue of the magazine published in 2018.

Thanks again to Baktra for presenting FLOP and my Sails of Doom on Bytefest, it was very well done !

 

I started dedicated thread for the game itself: http://atariage.com/...w-multijoy-game

 

Still the only way to get it is from the mag !

After sinking all enemy ships in the brilliant Sails of Doom game, you can go back to the port and board two trains.
 
FLOP 62 brings you Train 2, a continuation of the game released in April by BAHA Software. Train 2 has new and challenging screens powered by an improved engine. As a bonus, FLOP 62 also includes a remastered version of the original game. For more details, refer to the magazine.

As October is almost over, you can expect binaries of the games published in FLOP released at a8.fandal.cz very soon.

While waiting for the binaries, you can read the article on the TIA chip used in Atari VCS. If you haven't done so already, of course.

 

And if you cannot wait, I will tell you a secret. You can download from HOMESOFT's disk images site right now.

Thank you for new issue of this disk magazine. I specially like the English translation. Even if I am Slovenian and the languages are similar in some ways, I don't understand the language well. Maybe it's time for some learning...

 

Great stuff and texts there.
