JEFFRY JOHNSTON'S TOP TEN ATARI CONSOLE AND COMPUTER GAMES|
I've never played the arcade version, but the first time I
played it, the game had an arcade feel. The sound, graphics,
etc. looked just like I would picture in the arcade. Hard and
Fun 2 player simul. game. Kept it simple & fun.
8. Mario Bros.
Another game with 2 players and increasing difficulty. Tons of
obstacles to die on. Great graphics and control.
7. Jungle Hunt
Great graphics and mindless fun. Like Pitfall & Super Mario but
better than both of em.
Ahh, combat. Simple graphics but pure fun. The 2 player aspect
makes this game great.
Pure adrenaline. Awesome graphics, sound and difficulty.
4. Wizard of Wor
Playing 2 player simultaneous always seemed to make a game more
fun, and this one is no exception. Hard, and complex. Cool
sound effects too.
What can I say except this is one of the best games ever made.
I didn't realize how much this version ruled until I played the
Atari 8-Bit version. The graphics look 10x better on the 5200.
Besides that, having analog sticks makes this game a real thrill.
1. Space Dungeon
Great graphics, great gameplay, awesome sound. Space Dungeon
has it all. It also gets insanely hard on the higher levels,
which is just as important. It has lots of enemies too. For a
new twist, I suggest handing one controller to a friend and
playing it two players. Another great thing about the game is
that there is not any cheesy background music or excessively
