Not related to these ideas but...
I was thinking the other day that a good game to port to the 2600 would be the Atari 8-bit game called Cavern's of Mars. For anyone not familier with this game, it's similar to Scramble or Super Cobra, but instead of the screen scrolling right to left it scrolled from the bottom up, as if you ship was flying down into a deep pit. Targets appeared on ledges along the way and your ship could shoot straight down to destroy them. This game would be particualarly well suited to the 2600 because your sprite object would rarely line up horizontally across the screen, making it real easy to have a lot of objects on the screen without flicker.
it would be cool to see a 2600 version of it. Dan I
