LEONARD "PHOENIX" HERMAN'S TOP TEN ATARI CONSOLE AND COMPUTER GAMES|
Here's my ten favorite in no particular order. I'm not one for
writing reviews so that's why I didn't!
The Intellivision version is better but this one is still very
9. Mines of Minos
I'm a sucker for maze games and this one is more interesting than
most with its scrolling playfield and water dangers.
8. Ram It
I fell in love with this one at the 1982 CES. You have to have
the instructions to know what you're doing.
7. Food Fight
I really like the 'Instant Replay' feature.
6. Robotron: 2084
I can't get past the fourth level but that's okay.
5. Super Skateboardin'
This one is just a fun game with great graphics. Blows away the
4. Sword of Saros
My favorite of the Starpath games although Mindmaster and
Survival Island come close.
This was the groundbreaker for Atari. They followed it up with
Adventure and then they went stale.
How can you not like this one? Even without the Easter Eggs it's
a great game!
1. Dark Chambers
For me this game is like Adventure, only better.
Impossible Mission (7800/Atari)
I loved this one until I found out that its truly impossible.
I never played the original so I don't have a basis to compare it
with. On that note, this is a great game.
Secret Quest (2600/Atari)
Tower Toppler (7800/Atari)
Bobby Is Going Home (2600/?)
One of the best game descriptions on any box.
