Activision


Atari 2600 fans know that Activision (along with Imagic) was one of the two best third-party companies for the system. Games like Kaboom!, Pitfall!, and River Raid are legendary titles that are still fun to play.

Today, while doing some research for my next book, I ran across some really cool interviews with various Activision programmers commenting on the 2600 titles they worked on. You can read the interviews here.

Those interviews are from the "Atari 2600 Action Pack" for the PC, from '92 or '93? A long time ago, anyway.

I just ordered your book the other day from Amazon. Can't wait to give it a read through. I run www.colecovisioncritic.com and I'm always on the lookout for new video game history books. Keep up the great work and the great blog.
