Raiders of the Lost Ark Video Game Ad

When Raiders came to the Atari 2600, I had a friend who got it on the day it came out and we all lived at his house for a week. It took me a little longer to get it and I would drool over ads like this in magazines in the meantime. This ad was uploaded by the wonderfully prolific Paxton Holly, who was nice enough to share it in the Retroist Image Pool.

I just love the little whipping Indys along the bottom of the ad.

    Great ad, although it was one of many that taught me to look for screenshots of the game. No screenshot was often an indicator of a lousy adaptation – and Raiders falls into this category for me.
