This is one of those games that is an excellent port of the Arcade version, and a hell of a lot of fun to play.
But I remember passing this one by when it was originally on the store shelves because I had never played the game in the Video Arcade and at the time I never bought games for my 5200 that I hadn't played in an Arcade. (Stupid of me. That isn't the case these days).
Have since bought it for my Atari 800 and my 5200 and when I play it today I see just how much fun it is. I prefer the 5200 version for speed and graphics but hate the control of the 5200 controllers. I love playing the game on my Atari 800 because of the better controller, but don't like the graphics as much.
But either way, this game is a gem and worth picking up. And it's very easy to find sealed 5200 versions.
Underappreciated but a must-own game.

This is one excellent arcade translation, and probalbly the best home version.To bad there was little known about this when it came out.It can be played two way's.. for points, or for achieving higher levels..I can't seem to find the end..
