Personal Experience

My personal experience of the Atari 400 came in 1981 when a friend invited me to play Star Raiders on his Atari 400. I was blown away with the amazing graphics and complexity of the game.

It has taken me over 30 years to finally get my hands on my own Atari 400 and play Star Raiders again.
