Carl Williams writes, "The Atari 2600 was no stranger to 2D side scrolling shooters. We saw a few iconic ones released on the console. Defender being the most popular that I can think off the top of my head. While the Atari 2600 was not exactly designed for this type of game, developers were still able to make the 8-Bit classic console sing. Now, homebrew developers are taking their turn at making the Atari 2600 do things it was not designed to do, and doing it quite well."
