I'm happy to announce that in co-operation with Ken Siders, I am providing a very special bonus item to everyone who pre-orders the Atari 5200 Ultimate SD Cartridge.

Everyone who pre-orders will receive an authorized digital edition of the awesome 5200 homebrew Beef Drop!

Beef Drop is Ken's original 5200 homebrew of the arcade favorite Burgertime!

Even if you are a hard core collector and already own the full version of fantastic homebrew, you can now play your fully licensed digital edition on your Ultimate SD cartridge, or even in an emulator.

Three New 5200 Conversions

To celebrate the release of the new Ultimate SD cartridge, I have ported three new Atari 8-bit games to the 5200!


The games are (click link below for 5200 gameplay video):

These three games are free 'unofficial' extras and will be posted with ROM images in the 5200 forum shortly. These are all converted as standard 32K Atari 5200 ROM images, so you can play them in any emulator as well.
