Today I can finally release the two Atari BASIC games I created with my daughter Helena in 2016. She had to give away her smartphone for two weeks because she did nothing else more than play with the smartphone. Everyday family life wasn't possible anymore. Instead, she received an Atari 800 XL with two joysticks, a datasette, and, sometime later, a floppy drive. And we sat down together to dive into Atari BASIC and game coding essentials.

Pure computing power

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.
