Starpath Corporation

Overview

In 1982, Arcadia Corporation created the Starpath Supercharger peripheral for the Atari 2600 Video Computer System (VCS).

Designed by Bob Brown, the Supercharger was installed like a cartridge, but it had a special connector to be used with audio cassette tape recorders. Games for the system were distributed on cassette tape and a ROM-based system instructed gamers when to push play on their players. Games would take a while to load, but often offered much greater graphics and game play appeal than standard cartridges. In addition, previews of other games were included on the tapes so gamers could consider what new games looked like before purchasing them.

Within a couple months of release of the Supercharger, Arcadia was compelled to change their name to Starpath Corporation in order to avoid confusion with the Arcadia 2001 game system by Emerson.
