  1. I made a quick example program using the sprite from Seaweed Assault that has animations for 8 directions. Here's the .bas file so you can look at the code: mini_ex_8_way_animation_2021y_06m_14d_1359t.bas Here's the .bin file to use with your favorite emulator: mini_ex_8_way_animation_2021y_06m_14d_1359t.bin It uses SWCHA instead of the usual way since that's easier when dealing with an animated sprite that moves in 8 directions.
  2. If you posted the one in the middle by itself, I'd have a hard time figuring out what it's supposed to be, but your version on the right seems to be instantly recognizable.
  3. Hay, u knead 2 loose wait!

      But, I don't want my BASIC program to go too fast. :(

      WAIT 162,4

  4. Instead of a bunch of if-thens, you'd probably use on…goto.
  5. Open a socket and patch me through so I can watch Jack Bauer on "24."

  6. Beware of the giant sky centipedes! Don't worry. They only eat stupid people.

      I can imagine the servers are chatting with each other at a table while their customer have to wait to be serve their food.

  10. Poor C-3PO. Looks like they repurposed his robo willy.

      I think I played that game Robo Willy on Sega Genesis.

  11. You walk north and are forced to eat old Grue peas.

      I want nothing to do with this man's urine.

  12. When they did the ad, games were getting more advanced and the Atari 2600 was more popular than ever, so why not use it as a "record player" forever for those who don't want to pay hundreds of dollars for a new console that might suck when they already like the console they have?
  13. The 1977 page has been updated: https://www.randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-history-1977.html
  14. If the Atari 2600 was supposed to be a permanent part of our home entertainment centers, the cartridges would keep getting more advanced over time.
  15. Leisure Time Electronics and the Klove list claim that July is the correct month, but I also haven't seen ads until August. Do you think the lack of ads in July prove that August is the correct month?
