Atari 2600: Arcade Golf (1977)

I never had this particular Atari 2600 Sears Tele-Game cartridge but looking at the description on the back of the box that may not have been a bad thing.

“Nine different unique holes, each one with a moving obstacle to make life miserable, but interesting.”

Now what kind of description is that? I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have wanted my Grandparents to pick up this cartridge for me with that description.

As always a big thanks to the kind folks over at AtariAge for the box scans. Thanks as well to Tork110 for uploading a few rounds of the game over on YouTube.

    We had this, having bought it on sale for $2. A waste of time, money, and pixels. Great game to encourage kids to put down the controller, though.
