Atari 2600 Game
Produced by: Atari
Year of Release: 1978
Programmer: Gary Palmer
It's the latest in Atari's stupid games for stupid children series. It is Fun With Numbers. A renamed version of Atari's wildly unpopular game Basic Math.
This game is just simple addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication all done with very simple graphics. This game doesn't have any fancy backgrounds or animated turtles to distract the player from the sheer boredom of simple math problems.
This game was cloned under the name Basic Math (also by Atari), and by Sears under the smashingly original name Math. The art on the box of this game looks like it was drug induced. It is not the several realistic images merging into each other that most Atari boxes featured. Estimated value on this title is $2 USD. Any collector worth his joystick knows that games with boxes and manuals are worth oh so much more.
