I was gonna make a joke about a "M*A*S*H game for atari 2600" BUT IT EXISTS?!

you might wonder "hey does it have the classic MASH theme?"

YEP!
well, sorta.
8 notes of it.

the version for atari 8-bits has PARALLAX SCROLLING (oooh) but it also reveals that the two players are named "Hawkeye" and "Frank" which is kinda hilarious.

after the first phase is over, you have to extract shrapnel from soldiers
it appears to be based on Operation

The TI-99/4a version is reportedly one of the best games for the system, and it changes player 2 to Trapper instead of Frank

it also uses the TI's speech synth add-on, so you can be doing surgery and have a robot shout BUTTERFINGERS at you

which is a nightmare I've had before
