Oldschool Gaming - reviewing new games on classic computers

Unless you're young or live in a cave on a remote mountainside you'll have heard of the Atari 2600; the fake wood panelled, top-loading console that pretty much started the home gaming revolution in the late 1970's. Although limited in power, the 2600's original design as a machine to play Pong has long been surpassed.
