The Atari 5200 & Pac Man
Posted by abu ameerah on Monday, March 19, 2007
This following is an
old ancient commercial, of sorts, for the Atari 5200. It also gives us a series of techniques to beat the original Pac Man. I find the first 20 seconds of this to be interesting. He mentions a “sound synthesizer” and the “four button” joystick control among other amazing pathetic features. Ah, gaming at it’s most simple. The good ole days. Kids today think they’re so cool with their new fangled gaming devices and all of the cheezy graphics. Why these kids today don’t know how rough we had it!
