The Krokodile Cartridge is a programmable game cartridge for the Atari 2600 game console containing 512K of Flash ROM that can be programmed by connecting the cartridge to a Windows PC. The cartridge supports several different bankswitching methods and also includes 32K of built-in RAM to support games that require additional onboard cartridge memory (such as Atari's SARA-chip games). Krokodile Cartridge creator Armin Vogl and AtariAge have teamed up to sponsor a Krokodile Cartridge Label Contest
to design an original label for the Krokodile Cartridge. The winner of the contest will receive their own Krokodile Cartridge, free of charge (a $99 value), as well as his or her name in the credits as listed in the manual. Complete details on how to enter the contest may be found here
, and the Krokodile Cartridge can be pre-ordered in the AtariAge Store here
. Good luck!
November 19th, 2004 - Winner Selected!
creator Armin Vogl has chosen a label by Nathan Strum
as the winning entry for the Krokodile Cartridge Label Contest
! Nathan will receive a copy of the Krokodile Cartridge as soon as the cartridges go into production (which will be soon), and of course his label design will grace both the label and the manual. With the high quality of submissions for this contest, we have also decided to award a runner-up prize to Alexius Wronka
for his excellent label design. Alexius will receive a $25 gift certificate in the AtariAge Store.
Congratulations to Nathan Strum and Alexius Wronka, and many thanks to everyone who entered and made this a successful contest! We will be launching another label contest soon, so keep those paintbrushes, pencils, and mice warmed up!
