+discotronic Posted September 17, 2019 Share Posted September 17, 2019 I did a search of this forum and it has been a while since this was discussed. I didn't want to bump a years old thread so here goes. Now that the 2600 has a real Galaga after hearing for years it couldn't be done what about the 5200? For those who do not know Champ Games has released the demo and the AA Store will be selling it sometime after the Portland Retro Gaming Expo. I've linked the forum post below. The demo really shows again what the 2600 is capable of. From a technical standpoint could the 5200 actually do a good job at Galaga? I don't know programming or the limitations that the 5200 has to deal with. I also know the 2600 version has been helped with some new tech over the years. Seeing what is possible with the 2600, 7800 and ColecoVision lately makes me wonder about the neglected middle child of Atari. Unfortunately I think the support for this system is so small that getting a version of Galaga would probably never happen even if it was possible on the tech side. Just wanted to throw this out there. We have Tempest and the awesome Trak-Ball controller so I guess we are lucky to have be gifted with that. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
