Lots of goodies there.   Perfect to compare ports of popular arcade titles as well. :)

WOAH!  Nice, thanks for sharing.  I've always been amazed at how well the Apple 2 could do with games.

Yup, especially considering it has no graphics or sound chips.


The sound circuit is simply a gate that flips high or low. And the same thing with the video circuit, it blips the video timing and creates a b/w dot. False-color is achieved through artifacting in the NTSC signal, so to speak.
