By the time that game designer Larry Kaplan broke off from Atari in 1979 due to the company not giving recognition to the hard work of its programmers, he had already cut his teeth programming the likes of Street Racer, Air-Sea Battle, Codebreaker, Brain Games, and Bowling. Kaplan became one of five co-founders of the Activision where he delivered Bridge and the megahit Kaboom!
But in 1982, a year before Kaboom! would hit the one million sales mark he left Activision to work on what would become the Amiga computer before returning to Atari as Vice President! In this 1983 interview with Video Games magazine, Kaplan is pretty open about why he ended up leaving the company that he helped co-found.
