AGH Atari 2600 Review:

by Bomb

The name of the company that created this game is quite fitting, as they were responsible for some of the most forgettable games ever to grace a television screen. While Assault isn't as horrific as some of the other Bomb titles, it nevertheless is indicative of the lack of talent, passion and imagination that Bomb possessed.

As if we weren't tired of Galaxian knock-offs by 1984 already, Bomb served us a clone with worse graphics and gameplay than the game it obviously ripped off. A mother ship flies across the screen, pumping out three alien ships that you must destroy. The object is to shoot and destroy them while dodging the enemy fire. That's it!

With drab visuals, repetitive and boring gameplay, and not a hint of originality whatsoever, Assault is a game best left for collectors to seek out.
