Hey, Pinheads! Don't biff the bumpers, just nudge the podcast machine - DON'T TILT! - and check out this week's kick-out hole of an episode before it goes down the drain.
Obviously, this week's episode is all about golf.
Kidding! Don't do a panic flip.
Now, let me do a lazarus ball to get these show notes back on track. This week, on episode 113, we're playing VIDEO PINBALL, Atari's 1980 port of it's own 1978 coin-op machine. Is the game (and the story therein) a house ball or a gobble hole? Insert your quarters where indicated and let's find out.
Sorry! No show this week. We've gone fishin'...
Just kidding! In episode 112, we've gone fishin' AND we're doing a show.
How is this possible? Well, obviously we're playing the 1980 Activision (squee!) game FISHING DERBY. So is playing this game like landing a lunker or is it the one that got away? And why, we wonder, are these fish derby-izing?
Unlike the typical fish story, we actually check the facts on this one. Pull up a bucket of chum and join us!

We could have phoned in this week's episode, #111 to be specific.
We could have tossed Encounter at L-1 at you.
Maybe even L-2 with nary a thought.
Encounters L-3 and 4? Probably good enough.
But we here at ATARI BYTES believe that any encounters below L-5 are for chumps, which is why we've got for you:
ENCOUNTER AT L-5 from Data Age, 1982.
No need to thank me. But what do we find on our Encounter at L-5? Tune in to find out...

Episode 110 of the podcast is silent...but DEADLY.
That is to say, we're playing DEADLY DUCK, the 1982 20th Century Fox game. It's sort of like waterfowl nested inside a Space Invaders game and QUACKED everything up. Also, there are brick-wielding crabs and dragonflies armed with bombs. Because why not?
What story could I possibly make out of this? Hope I don't lay a (duck) egg on this one. Listen to find out if I do.
