Games For the Ambipolydextrous

First Star software released four new games.  The kid in this ad is overdosing on fun:

It appears he is running an Atari 2600, an Atari home computer, a Commodore 64, and a Commodore Vic-20 (the TRS-80 Color Computer being eliminated as the only one of these systems that DIDN'T use the classic Atari joystick.)  And playing all four at once, presumably on four different televisions.  That's a pretty good trick.  It's a pity the games weren't more memorable than the ad.

At least First Star's titles featured "real-time animations," unlike, I suppose, those other games where you had to mail away for the movement part of the experience.
