I was wondering, with all the different cartridge types, what defines the location where the storage is banked into? Is the logic in the Atari hardware, the OS or the cartridge itself? On the off-chance it is the latter, would it in theory be possible to have a cartridge which only banks a few bytes into the colour registers, allowing quick changes of colour palettes? Probably not possible, but just thinking outside of the box.
I've just played Super Cobra (Coleco) for a bit and pondered the wisdom of destroying fuel sources in order to refuel your craft. It's an undeniably fun mechanic (and a vg trope of course) , but explaining it requires some seriously convoluted mental gymnastics. Quantum bombs which don't really explode but suck the fuel out and direct it to your craft thorough a multidimensional wormhole is the closest one I came to. Videogames are obviously littered with such amusing conundrums. What's your favourite one?
