Almost identical to the 2600 version. I do think ''if it ain't broke don't fix it" to some extent, but they could have jazzed up the graphics a bit for the 8-bit without losing the simplicity and gameplay. Probably better than the C64 version which adds an unnecessary backdrop that obscures the gameplay, but overall the 2600 version wins!

One of the most lackluster ports ever done. It's basically a carbon-copy of the VCS version with none of the embellishments - with the exception of the O2 and VIC-20 versions - afforded by other ports (Intellivision, TRS-80, C-64, Colecovision, TI-99/4a, MS-DOS/PCjr). The programmer completely wasted the capabilities of the Atari 800, and considering this was an expensive cart BITD (nearly $50!), it amounts as nothing but a quick cash-grab on Imagic's part.
Same game, packaged for other countries. Do we know production volumes, etc? Where's a cart image for both?
The "international edition" is extremely common? You gotta be kidding...
Why in the world would this extremely common cart be rated as a 9?????

Fun because it's simple, responsive, and doesn't try to "wow" you. Just shoot the demons. Then shoot more demons. Eventually they'll end up shooting you. Short but sweet.
