Reviews summary

Good book and arrived on time right before christmas

Programming for the 2600 is a herculean task and i encourage anyone who loves classic games and wants a real in depth look at how it's done to read this book

Essentially the authors are applying an academic codification to the study of video games wherein they determine how games are shaped by their platforms as well as looking at how games evolve over time to take advantage of and get more out of the hardware

They take a look at 10 games that are what they view as the best examples of games the 2600 platform
