  1. Atari Adventure Square says:

    Another great title that honors the VCS with its innovation and great gameplay.

    Activision programmers were true heroes in those days, giving us gamers hope in the future of leisurely home entertainment at a time when computers were installing themselves in our living rooms, turning those fantasy pixels into spread sheet numbers, forcing us to grow up and begin prepping our lives as functional adults in the workplace.

    Or at least not just now, there are rivers to be raided.

    Yeah, great game and video review.
