Large font used in numerous Atari video arcade games, 1984-1987. As the original font uses three different colors for a font-smoothing effect, I attempted to replicate it in two-color by using differently-sized squares. Not sure how well that works; as such, any suggestions are welcome. Best below 20 pt.

I agree.
Comment by cayo 10th January 2010
Wow! That's a nice piece. As always, I very much appreciate your effort to revive and preserve these fonts. The early age of computer games have produced countless of marvelous pixel designs that are parts of our digital heritage. Without such conservation these gems would go into oblivion and lost forever. 10/10

I can only agree with my fellow FSrs. This is your finest font (so far). The two-colour effect works really well in your sample. Keep up the good work. 10/10

Quite accurate, but don't make it as an outline one.

It just hurts my eyes just looking what you did to make this font.

@Christianisb - Here is a solid rendition.  Not as accurate, and loses much of the elegance, but here it is, nonetheless:
