I used to play Video Chess on Atari with my dad when I was a kid. What is the approximate FIDE rating of each level?

Atari 2600 has bugs which make the higher levels unrateable. It is reputed to be slightly better than Microchess, according to a chess.com article.

Atari had a very limited book which makes it weaker than current approaches.

An ESTIMATE of the strength is as follows:

Level Time Rating(?):

8 10 700

1 15 800

2 30 1000

3 45 1100

4 165 1300

5 195 1350

6 720 ??

7 36000 ??
