ATARImagazin PD - Public Domain

ATARImagazin was a magazine for both Atari 8 and 16/32 bit. Likewise, there was a public domain series for both computer families. The magazine didn’t last into the 90’s - the last issue was the November 1989 one. Later, the magazine was resurrected as a pure Atari 8 bit magazine. Like other German Atari magazines, ATARImagazin didn’t release their type-in listings through their public domain series and instead created a line of special disks aptly called “Lazy Fingers“.
