The first rule about stella list is: talk about stella list.

I just had a bummer of a situation.  I remembered this old game Heat
Seeker from an old Compute's Gazette, seemed like a good canidate for
a 2600 port.  Downloaded the disk image, an emulator, went through all
this fuss....
and it's not as good as I remembered. Alas.  Might be worth a java port maybe.

Thos old Gazettes and Antics and Ahoys probably have a # of portable
ideas...on the other hand its kind of sad that everyone (including me)
mostly thinks of ports rather than original game concepts. Ah well!
