Last week we shared the rather frightening TV Commercial for Imagic’s Atlantis but this week we are taking a look at the rather more earthly TV ad for its sequel, Cosmic Ark.

Did you notice who the older brother was in that commercial? That is Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) from A Christmas Story!
Update: Thanks to sharp-eyed reader Logan who correctly pointed that the older brother in the ad isn’t Peter Billingsley but Corky Pigeon from Silver Spoons!

So if you are now all fired up for taking on the challenge of Cosmic Ark you might want to watch this segment of How To Beat Video Games that the Retroist posted a few years ago for some tips on mastering the game.
