Retroplayed: Episode 1

     Last year, I began work on the pilot episode of what I hoped would become a series of video game reviews highlighting underappreciated technical marvels in gaming history. In this inaugural episode, I take a look at Dan Kitchen's Tomcat: The F-14 Fighter Simulator, a surprisingly intricate Atari 2600 flight simulator.

     Overall, given the delayed production in my finishing this review, I was fairly happy with how it turned out in the end, and I hope it does justice to what is one of my favorite Atari 2600 games. If the Fates are kind, I'll probably start production on the next episode sometime before the turn of the next millennium.
