Sorry for the lateness of this episode focusing on Megamania and Sky Jinks by Activision. Also I apologize for not putting links to all of my podcast friends here that I mentioned in the episode. You know where they are. Next week I'll be looking at Smurf and Carnival (with the vaporware Cosmic Avenger thrown in). Upcoming games include RealSports Soccer & Volleyball by Atari; Super Cobra and Reactor by Parker Brothers; Tax Avoiders by American Video Game and Boing! by First Star; and RealSports Football and Atari Video Cube by Atari. If you have any thoughts on any of these games or any I've already covered, please send them to me at Thanks for listening, see you next Wednesday!
