Code masters Game Genie

The BBC Archive page on Facebook has some brilliant old TV snippets. This is about the Code masters Game Genie released in 1993.

Re: Atari 400 Mini

I'm with you there Pobulous . I can understand the appeal of the C64 Maxi, and Amiga Maxi (If it appears), but not the mini ones. As a slight aside, from a BASIC programming perspective I've never had a huge amount of love for the Atari 8bit range. To get anymore than 5 colours on screen at one time...
