  (an italian game written in BASIC);

James Bradford mentions:
"On the 400, the light gun /pen will only work in joystick port 4." 
This renders much light gun and light pen software unusable on the 400.

Andreas Koch adds:
All Lightgun games can be used with a lightpen (which is not as accurate
as a Lightgun however). And all lightpen programs can be used with a
lightgun. thus add:

- Atari Graphics cart. by Atari
  (a painting/drawing program);

  (a 4-wins or 5-wins clone!)
