Player/Missile Podcast

This podcast is a retrospective of the Atari 8-bit home computer systems, the magazines that covered them, and a somewhat chronological review of games as they arrived on the platform.

I am taking a temporary hiatus from the podcast as I collect physical copies of the magazines. In lieu of donations (or in addition to them!), if you have magazines you’d like to contribute to the show, contact me at!

The culmination of the first “season” of the Player/Missile podcast is a review of my favorite game and the announcement of the project undertaken by Kevin Savetz and myself to reverse engineer the game. We’re sponsoring a level design contest, and there’s still time to enter! Oh, and I’m taking a hiatus until I can collect the physical magazines. You can help out with your contributions!
