Atari 5200 Software Spotlight:
TICKER TAPE DEMO
Maybe this demonstration was planned to be used in 5200 kiosks
for stores to show off. Or perhaps it was created by a guy
(which we suspect is an individual by the name of "Rubio") who
was working on some new programming tricks. Regardless of the
rationale behind it, there really isn't much to see or talk about
in Ticker Tape Demo.
You basically get your generic 5200 title screen that's found in
most games, except that after seeing Rubio's copyright info,
the phrase "Again Rubio Scores!" replaces the top
line and begins to scroll and move side-to-side, banging on the
left and right edges. Each time the phrase hits the outer
edge of the screen, one of the letters on the outside disappears.
This continues to occur until the word "Rubio" is left. That's it.
To see it happen again, you need to restart the machine or press
the reset button on the 5200 controller.
