I also enjoyed Warren's Powerpoint presentation on the making of this game (inc. the map)
We used to make up add'l rules for the games, like - All dragons must be dead, bat must be trapped in a locked castle, ALL items in the gold castle, etc.
Still fun after all these years!
this is my favorite childhood game.cant get enough of it.awesome
The best-controlling videogame of all time. Try the 'guided missile' variations and then show me a game that gives the player better control that that!

And oh yeah - with all those different game variations, this cart is only 2Kb. That's 2048 bytes, folks.

Probably because of the frustration level...if you are *almost* to the medic plus, and the collision is slightly off so you touch a critter...you lose mass points and have to do it all over again. I remember how many of my friends would sigh and say "lets go outside".
This game was supposedly tested by little girls and did not get a good review from them.
|Crypts of Chaos|
I used to luv this game! I know, the graphics are crappy and the controls clunky but...the imagination it brought to life!
best racer for the 2600
Best game for the 2600 with "River Raid". 10/10 in every aspect.
too bad the second one is not as good as this one. This one is one of my favourites since childhood. Thanks Carol.
