And look at this list of features!

Features:

    * First real-time space strategy game for the Atari 2600.
    * Combines graphical star field display with 12 character text display.
    * Single player game against the computer AI.
    * Uses 1 joystick controller.
    * 65 difficulty levels.
    * Compatible with an unmodified Starpath Supercharger for playing on original hardware.
    * 4K ROM.
    * 7 Easter egg messages. Collect them all.


I do have to say that's really cool. I'll never play it, but that's still really cool.
