Hi there Mathletes! This week we are looking at two math-based games for the VCS, Math Gran Prix and Basic Math (aka Fun With Numbers). I hear your rapturous applause, thank you so much. Next week will be Alien and Mega Force by 20th Century Fox, and don't forget Strudders' Score Contest! See here for more details. Afterwards I will be looking at Chopper Command and Starmaster by Activision; Assault and Great Escape by Bomb; Raiders of the Lost Ark by Atari; Okie Dokie and Stell-A-Sketch by Bob Colbert; Rabbit Transit and The Official Frogger by Starpath, and Hangman and Road Runner by Atari. If you have any feedback on any of these games or any of the games I've already covered, please send it to me at 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Thank you so much for listening!
