Play

You have several options to play Gene Medic. The easiest is to run it in the freely available Stella Atari 2600 emulator on your PC or Mac. You can also run it in a web browser using the Javatari website. Running it on the original Atari 2600 hardware is a bit more work but possible. The first hardware option is to load the binary onto an SD/microSD card and use a Harmony Cartridge with the Atari 2600. The second hardware option is to have a real cartridge made at Atari Age. Instructions for each option are provided below.
