ReviewsEdit

Original Adventure by Creative Computing Software. Reviewed by Jeff Woodward - (Page 8)

Now any Atari owner with 32K memory (no disk needed!) can play the classic Original Adventure.

Deluxe Invaders by Roklan - (Page 15)

The concept of Space Invaders is great but you can't really improve it much. The Atari VCS version is probably as good as any.

Clowns & Balloons by Datasoft - (Page 15)

In conclusion - not a game I could get addicted to but the absolutely superb graphics make it well worth buying to impress family and friends with the Atari capabilities.

Baja Buggies by Gamestar - (Page 15)

It is well worth the money-after all where in England can you race across the desert under the blazing sun!

Choplifter by Broderbund - (Page 16)

Shame it is only available on Disk, but if you have a Disk Drive, go out and buy this. Or, how about going out and buying a Disk Drive!

Frogger by Sierra On-Line - (Page 16)

Preppie and Pacific Coast Highway are similar games but Frogger was the first and on the Atari is probably the best. Frogger uses sound much more sparingly than Preppie and its much the better for it.
