This week’s episode of ATARI BYTES, number 92 for those keeping score, is all about Benjamin Franklin.
Well, not really. But thanks to this week’s co-host, my kid Henry, there is a long digression from talking about the 1983 Data Age game FRANKENSTEIN’S MONSTER to talk about the mechanics of the founding father’s famous key-on-a-kite-string experiment. Just a little extra info for you, our faithful listeners, at no extra charge. You’re welcome.
Getting back to the game, what lurks in the creepy depths of Dr. Frankenstein’s castle? Any why is it so angry? How big is its power probe exactly? Can we do NOTHING about this unsightly green wall it hides behind?
No tricks, only treats in this Halloween episode!
