Some of these documents contain the entire original manual. Some contain only the quick-reference section, or a list of keyboard commands. Others are simply strategies on how to better play a game.

I have not verified that these instructions are accurate. I don't even recognize a few of these as Atari 8-bit programs. They are simply a collection of docs that I downloaded years ago and had forgotten about until recently. I transferred them from my 8-bit to my PC via an Atari ST, re-formatted some of them (and fixed a few spelling errors), and placed them here.

I hope to gradually add to this list, as I have quite a bit of documentation I would like to see here. If you find any errors, have any suggestions, or just want to drop a line to another 8-bit user, you can E-Mail me (Larry Richardson) here.
