Besides Activision one of my favorite game companies that I found you could rely on in the early days of the Atari 2600 was Imagic. They were probably better known for their awesome ‘photo/model kit’ covers sometimes than the games themselves but they really did have a slew of great titles for the 2600 and Intellivision. Atlantis, Cosmic Ark, Riddle of the Sphinx, Dracula, Microsurgeon, Demon Attack, Star Voyager, and Dragonfire were just a few of the solid titles to be released by the company.

Dragonfire was one of my favorites and my imagination allowed me to craft epic stories as I ran across the drawbridge to each castle, jumping and ducking fireballs to get my chance to fill my arms with the Dragon’s hoarded treasure!

Those ‘Epic’ stories made it into a lot of my notebooks in Junior High…and no I will not be sharing them. Ha, ha.

A big thanks as always to AtariAge.Com for that awesome box art you see up top!
