First, the good news. Your little brother has learned to play video games with five controllers at once — an amazing feat of skill. The bad news? He’s sitting on one of your joysticks.

    First Star software was always the top flight graphics people for the Atari.

    Amazingly, they’re still in business.

    Really? That’s awesome. What are they up to these days? I’m going to have to look into this.

    Those graphics for Flip and Flop look amazing! I wonder if that’s a C64 or A8 screen shot….

    I remember a couple of these games, and distinctly do remember these games having some of the best graphics on the Atari 8-bit. These look like Atari screenshots, boat, but I really can’t tell. I had Astro Chase, Bristles, and Flip and Flop. Vaguely remember Astro Chase having great graphics but not being all that much fun. Bristles and Flip and Flop were much more entertaining.

    First time I’ve visited the site. . .great stuff!

    Star soft still in the biz? neet-o.

    I’d like to know what their up too as well.

    It’s a wonder how atari is still in business

  6. RedWolf Says:

    Seems like they spend most of their days milking Boulder Dash for all it’s worth.

    By the way, David, the original Atari is no longer in business, but the brand name survives. The current Atari has nothing (directly, anyway) to do with the company that produced Atari home consoles, computers, or even the division that produced arcade games.
