Snakeweapon My experience of this game was on a C64 cart! Same levels & layout, but the graphics were nowhere near this commercial's.
baleen I had it on Coleco. I remember it having better graphics than a lot of the other blocky shit I spent day after day suffering through.
Mother Lumper Video games today are still promoted with doctored/fake footage, at least back then there were legitimate reasons for doing it, low res graphics looking terrible over broadcast television, artistically rendered screen shots for comic book ads, etc.
SteamPoweredKleenex I miss the amazing Atari cartridge box art. Someone needs to make the games that actually match some of those paintings.
sosage Modern games have become those posters and they are all incredibly fucking boring.
SteamPoweredKleenex Not so! They look for photorealism, 'tis true, but where are the astronauts playing 3D Tic-Tac-Toe or Super Breakout? The Victorian drivers seen on the covers of Dodge 'Em? Or even the mustachio'd daredevil from Human Cannonball?
