Atari 2600: Homebrew Programming

During the month of January, in the heart of the generally unbearable “Polar Vortex” of early 2014, I spent my days (and a few nights) inside, learning how to program for the Atari 2600. The Atari 2600 was a gaming system released by Atari in September of 1977, 38 years ago, and was one of the first more »
