Atari Logo was developed by Logo Computer Systems, Inc. (LCSI) in Quebec, Canada. LCSI wrote Apple Logo, and the Atari version maintained strong compatibility with it. Atari Logo also features commands that supported the Atari 8-bit enhanced graphics and sound: 4 simultaneous drawing turtles, turtles that look like actual turtles instead of triangles, redefinable turtle shapes, and an event handler for collision detection.
