Pure gold Willie! Great memories of Asteroids on the 2600, one of the best arcade ports ever for any system. Still holds up after all these years.

Great video, Willie!

I really loved Asteroids on the 2600. The color raster graphics and added game features made it superior to the arcade original in some respects. While I tend to play SpiceWare's Space Rocks nowadays, Asteroids will always have a place on my 2600.

Are you going to start a regular feature for AtariCade? It always amazes me how many great arcade ports that the 2600 had.
