It's modern-day old-school rock blasting in this special homebrew episode of the Atari Jaguar Game by Game Podcast. Rebooteroids is an AtariAge-exclusive title by the Jaguar wizards at Reboot, a lovingly-crafted update to an Atari arcade classic. Learn about the game's lengthy development, dig into all the gameplay details, check out the music, and figure out how to pronounce the '#' symbol in this brief but exciting departure from the usual chronological game coverage.

Also included is feedback from arcadegeek23, Protestari, and Troff!
