Amidar was fun but it always confused the heck out of me. You’re a Gorilla. You’re a Paint roller. You’ have pigs chasing you or you have these tiki-looking guys chasing you. Was is a Pac-man ripoff? Was it a Qix ripoff? It’s all very confusing. Not many people realize this about Amidar, but it is based on the Japanese game, Amidakuji.
The Atari 2600 port was not a bad translation of the Konami/Stern original, although it is not the best port either.
