Re\Visioned: Activision is a six episode animated web series produced by Elliot Blake for GameTap. Each episode takes a humorous looks at a different classic Activision title for the Atari 2600. They have so far skewered Cosmic Ark, Freeway, H.E.R.O, Kaboom, Pitfall and Pressure Cooker. They brought some great voice talent into the project a quick run through the credits and you will see Clay Croker, Dave Foley, Ed Begley Jr., and Nicole Sullivan. Not bad for webisodes.

The videos demonstrate a masterful understanding of both humor and the Atari classic (a rare combination) and I can only hope that they are successful enough to warrant 6 more.

PITFALL

KABOOM
