I bought this as a kid with my own money since I couldn't get to the arcarde every day to play Berkerk. I loved this game. I still play it (so do my kids).
I would like to see the bytecode come off the ROM and into a Wondows virtual machine that runs the same processor as the Atari so I could play it on the pc (my Atari 800 doesn't run reliably anymore). Although it lacks the graphics and is a very monotonous game from today's standards, it's still more challenging than any game I owned since (Nintendo NES, Play Station, Gamecube). People are amazed when they see how fast the droids move in sector 7 -- which I often reach but can't hang unless I get a real lucky terrain.
I recommend this game to anyone who liked Berzerk.
