AG 003, Checkers, and AG 004, Fishing Derby!

This week's episode deals with two of Activision's first four releases, Checkers and Fishing Derby. There aren't a lot of sounds in this episode because both games have little sound, and it seemed silly to add in variations of the same sounds. Next week I'm going back to Atari to discuss Indy 500 and Street Racer, both launch titles. Upcoming games include Gorf and Wizard of Wor by CBS games; Star Voyager and Atlantis by Imagic; Star Strike and Adventures of Tron by M-Network, and Adventure by Atari. If you have any stories or memories of these games that you would like to share, please send them in text or mp3 format to You can click the link above to listen, or subscribe on iTunes or stream on Stitcher.
