Episode 97 – Tax Avoiders and Boing!

I hope you all had a wonderful Passover/Easter/Spring Break! It’s time to get back into the games, and today we’re looking at Tax Avoiders (Happy Tax Day too!) by American Videogame and Boing! by First Star Software. Both are the lone releases for the 2600 of their respective companies. Greg from the SNES Podcast is sponsoring a contest on my show! He is giving away a $20 gift certificate to the Atari Age Store. All you have to do is tell me your favorite homebrew Atari 2600 game in order to be entered in the contest. I will draw one winner at random on April 28th at 11:59 PM EST. Send your entries to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net or check Facebook for the pinned post. Thank you Greg!

Next week I’ll be looking at Super Cobra and Reactor by Parker Brothers. In the upcoming weeks we’ll have Realsports Football and Atari Video Cube by Atari; Pitfall by Activision; Shootin’ Gallery and Riddle of the Sphinx by Imagic; Vanguard and Phoenix by Atari, and Oystron, INV, and Mondo Pong, all homebrews by Piero Cavina. If you have any thoughts on these games or any games I’ve already covered, please send them to me at 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Thank you for listening!
