I’m sad to say that in the next couple of days I’ll be removing both the free and paid versions of Tanks! from the US app store.

I received an email from Apple last night saying that Atari had complained about the game saying that it infringed on their copyright. They appear to be of the opinion that they hold the rights to produce any game that involves driving a tank around…

You can read the letter that Atari sent to apple here.

Obviously I don’t believe that Atari have a leg to stand on in this matter and taking the game down in no way implies any acceptance of their claims. But the amount of money that comes in from the game (<$1 a day) does not justify paying for expensive lawyers.

Surprisingly Simple! - “16-bit" Mini Handheld Arcade - In this video, I explore and dissect a 16-bit handheld gaming machine that hosts 160 Sega games. This interesting gadget priced at twenty dollars is surprisingly accurate to the original Sega console. After unboxing and testing the game Golden Axe, I opened it up to check out the internal components like the pcb, chips, battery pack and controls. Although it's not very hackable, as the functionality lies under an epoxy blob, this little machine was a treat to disassemble and reassemble, all while still keeping its functionality intact. With a dash of nostalgia and quality gaming in a handheld package, the machine is certainly an intriguing find.
