(I have also seen an advert from GCP in ANALOG or Antic, that listed
 the following games: The City, Cybertank, Cybership, Bio-War, Lords
 of Space; I am not sure if they are all available for the Atari, A.K.)

To play these games online, one would not only require an Atari computer,
but also a modem, a modem-driver and/or a terminal program (like Kermit,
Bobterm, Teleterm, A-Term, Ice-T, BBS Express Pro, etc.). See also the
sections 7.8, 10.1 and 10.2 which tell you more about modem/terminal
programs and modem hardware for the Atari. Emulator users have it a little
easier and can use the built-in modem emulation in Ape-DOS, Ape-Win,
Atari 800 DOS, Atari 800 Win, etc.
