***** by Jonty. Comment: "i remember the manic, fun quality this game had, with great, often black, humor. What was unusual was the incredibly clear, sparkling stereo individual rock tracks with realistic drums, cymbals and electric guitar. When the magazines for the Sinclair Spectrum finally collapsed into the famous "Tape Wars" between titles, I recall Your Sinclar magazine having a coin op track tape on thier cover: Afterburner intro music [basically looped], unfortunately no enemy camp canyon bonus round sequence music on one side and the FULL 720deg music score on the other side, together with FULL music for Continental Circus." 2003-08-03 02:31:52Z

Early Atari documentation list
Submitted by Gregg Woodcock (woodcock@bnr.ca) Here is a pretty complete list of documentation for Atari's early arcade video games. Note that "TM" stands for "Technical Manual" and "DP" stands for "Drawing Package [supplement]" which was later renamed to "SP" which stands for "Supplement Package". I am not sure what "CO" stands for but the "C" could be for "Correction" because most of the CO documents were errata or addendums to the manuals. In addition, most Atari games had "ST" documents which w

--- 720 --- (Contributor: unknown) In the ramp section, levels 8, 9, and 10: holding down the kick and jump buttons simultanously on the lip of the ramp will boost your air. This trick only works when you're going the correct speed (usually your third or fourth jump), and only once (as far as I can tell) per ramp session per level. ----------- Afterburner ----------- (Contributor: Anthony D.
