According to an interview in the Feb. 1985 issue of Keyboard magazine, Jeff Gusman did the sound for this game. He also did the sound for the Atari 2600 Oblix

A rather average game at the most. The game is decent looking but loaded with endless flicker (a big no no for me) and after a few stages the game is extremely repetitive and the difficulty is pretty slow to pick up so the game gets boring early. Only recommended if it's cheap.
It´s a fun and challenging game. I like the look of Pengo and his enemies. Another proof that VCS 2600 gaming can have both - great gameplay and decent grafix. A must have for every serious VCS gamer.

This is an earlier version of Pengo with an arcade style title screen, and a few bugs. It's unknown why Atari decided to remove the arcade title screen, but it may have been because of space constrains.
