Episode 249 of ATARI BYTES is going to the dogs.
We're playing powerhouse gaming publisher Purina's maze game...
Hold on...*checks notes*
Yep, PURINA. Ok...see, in 1983 Purina ran a deal where you could send in proofs of purchase (kids, go ask your parents) from bags of dog food and get an Atari game called CHASE THE CHUCK WAGON. Spectravision did the programming. Such as it is. But we'll get into that. WOOF!
