Since submitting the previous trivia item, I was able to find out more information regarding the color in this (and other) Atarisoft booters. It turns out the names 'partial color' and 'full color' make more sense when the game is run on a true CGA card with a composite monitor instead of an RGB monitor. For some reason the CGA card will display the red-cyan-white-black palette in black and white on a composite monitor, but the red-green-brown-black palette does appear in color. Add
Did You Know?
Pressing the F8 key anytime during the game switches CGA palettes between 'full color' and 'partial color' modes. The difference? 'Full color' uses the red-green-brown-black palette, and 'partial color' uses the red-cyan-white-black palette. (Other than a different palette, both modes look the same so I'm not sure where the 'full' and 'partial' color names come from. This ability to choose a CGA color palette has appeared in several other Atarisoft games, such as Dig Dug and Galaxian.) Add
