I can understand the guy in this TV commercial, it’s 1982 and he has just swung by his neighborhood game store and picked up Activision’s new space shooter ‘Starmaster’. He gets home, sets some mood music, rubs his cat who happens to be named Krull and settles down for an evening with his new Atari 2600 cartridge. Then…Bam! He turns it on and it freaks out his cat and starts messing with the power grid for the city! What is going on?!
