There are nine more humorous takes on missed movie based licenses over at 1 More Castle. The likes of Kramer Vs Kramer for the Commodore Vic-20, and John Carpenter’s Christine for the Nintendo Entertainment System to name just a few. But the one that not only made me giggle uncontrollably for five minutes was also one…that I kind of wish had been made into an actual Atari 2600 title, Steven Spielberg’s 1971 adaptation of the Richard Matheson short story, Duel.
“Two players, one as the terrifying truck, and one as a little red Plymouth. Race to the top of the hill! Who will win? Use the steering paddle controllers as you both climb a dirt path. Watch out for the cliff!”
This sounds like the perfect time for all of those homebrew developers to get to work on bringing us this missed opportunity on the Atari 2600!
