a great nice little read on one of my most favorite Atari 8-bit games of all time. cracking stuff and as I mentioned in that blog years ahead of its time with amazing graphics, idea and concept. Pure genius from David Fox and crew back then..wow 1985? it's hard to believe what these guys were doing back then.

Wasn't this game supposed to be ported to the 7800?

I need to get this for my XE. I have the homebrew Jag game on a CD and it's a great game.

I *believe* it was in beta when it was cancelled and I know that it leaked online several years ago because I fired it up with MESS.  I found a short video on Youtube someone made of the 7800 version running in MESS:

As an Atari and Sega guy it drives me crazy seeing some of these cancelled games, the 7800 had so much potential.
