Atari Party 2011
June, 11 2011
"Players" are the 'big' sprites on the Atari 2600 and 8-bit computer (like the tanks in Combat), and "Missiles" are the 'small' sprites (like the bullets in Combat).
At Atari Party 2011, the "Players" are the volunteers bringing consoles, computers and games, and "Missiles" are the volunteers who are just there to help out — helping move equipment, keep an eye on gear, assist the public, etc. Some volunteers have offered to help with both aspects of the event!
