Pushing the Crusty Old Atari 2600 to its Absolute Limit!

In the past, I’ve showcased games and scene demos which pushed the Sega Genesis and Commodore 64 to their absolute limits. Programming wizards accomplished visuals on both systems that stretch the bounds of belief.

But then, how low can we go? What’s the oldest, weakest machine it’s possible to get such interesting visuals out of? Would you believe…the Atari 2600?
