This is one of the original best arcade style game for the 8bit Atari computers. Definitely one of my all-time favorites. Just like Pac-Man, it is one of those games that is simple to learn but hard to master. A challenging fun game that you will need to outsmart the serpents. They know how to trick you in chosen the wrong path and get crushed by them which almost seems their A.I. is a lot smarter than you initially thought possible; even the frog is smart! It is truly amazing that this game was done using only 8k with all the levels, enemies A.I., and with its fantastic gameplay.

I just discovered this game recently. It's nothing Earth-shattering but it is simple, fun and entertaining. Basically, everything an 8-bit game should be.

Yes, Virginia, there are other maze-chase games besides Pac-Man. Serpentine is a brand new game from Broderbund Software and it doesn't look or play like Pac-Man at all. It adds an excellent new touch to maze-chase games - you don't have to clear the maze of dots, all you have to do is kill enemy serpents in a room.
You kill serpents by hitting them head on, providing... [more]
