Hello everybody. I am the programmer of Megaoids. This was converted from the original Atari 8-bit source code to run on the Atari 5200. Registers and memory locations were changed, and the code to read the keyboard and joystick was replaced to work with the Atari 5200 controllers. You have the default 5200 analog joystick controller that varies the rotation of the ship depending on how far you press left or right, or you can choose digital joystick option that moves left or right at one speed that work with both the 5200 controllers and the adapters for the db9 Joysticks. 


5200 version Megaoids is designed to work with the stock Atari 5200 system with 16K RAM, 6502, Pokey, Antic, GTIA. Does not take advantage of any custom modifications to the system itself.
