Today I can finally release the two Atari BASIC games which I created together with my daughter Helena in 2016. She had to give away her smart phone for two 2 weeks because she did nothing else anymore than playing with the smart phone. Normal family life wasn't possible anymore. Instead she received an Atari 800 XL with two joysticks, a datasette and later a floppy drive. And we sat down together to dive into the essentials of Atari BASIC and game coding.
Or as an old friend of mine put it "The Atari is exactly what your parents had to take away from you" :-)
In this video she presents the results of our efforts.
