Recreation of the large pixel font from Atari's "Super Bug" (1977) and "Fire Truck" (aka "Smokey Joe", 1978).

In the games, the font is incomplete. Both lack a "Q", "V" and "W", which I made from scratch for this recreation, trying to approximate the overall style/feel. The "J" is present in "Super Bug", but not "Fire Truck". Conversely, the "K" is present in "Fire Truck" only.

With the exception of the added letters, only the characters present in the games' tilesets have been included.
