AtariLegend is now open-source

August 9, 2020 by LynXX

The code for the AtariLegend website is now open-source! It always was our desire for AtariLegend to be an open project, that's why we started sharing full database dumps in 2018. We wanted to open the code as well for a long time, but it took some time to reach that point. Today it's finally here, please find the source code on GitHub.

Contributions are welcome, and we hope that more developers will join us in continuing to improve the site. Also feel free to use GitHub to report bugs or if you have improvements ideas. And as usual please continue contributing to the database by submitting your reviews, game facts and comments!

Interview with Frank Schoonjans, creator of 3D-Calc spreadsheet

Random review

In their day, coin-op conversions were all the rage, and rightly so. It was cause for excitement to hear that you were able to play a version of Afterburner or Altered Beast or R-Type in your own home, without a stack of twenty pence coins at your side; even if the end results were of somewhat mixed quality.

Did you know?

What does ST stand for? Some people believe it is an abbreviation of "Sam Tramiel", head of Atari. Others say it is short for "16 32", cause the ST was the first in a line of 16 - 32 bit computers by Atari!
