COULD have been an excellent game except for 2 things:

1. It's damn near impossible.

If you're looking for a good home version of Scramble, this is one of the best I've seen yet. It's fast-moving, the graphics and sound effects are good and it's hard as the devil to play - even at the easiest skill level.
This game is loaded from a cassette or disk (you do not need the Atari BASIC cartridge to play.) The cassette version takes a good five minutes to load into... [more]
