Well, never heard of that one. I'm guessing they were riding the success of Centipede?
It sounds better than Flea War I, which I had to sadly end with a bomb.
The non-game CGI in this commercial is excellent for a TV commercial from 1982. I'd go so far as to say that these graphics have aged better than TRON (the movie, not the game, duh).
I don't know if this commercial directly inspired the graphics in FAR CRY 3: BLOOD DRAGON, but it's the same general style.
Looked it up, this commercial was done by MAGI, who also worked on TRON.

Tank from TRON. Pilot helmet from Airwolf.
I'll bet more budget went into the commercial than the game.
This reminds me, I still have a working 2600 and a box of carts downstairs hooked up to my HDTV, and it still works but I never play it.
So I should throw it out.
But I can't.
Do you have Music Machine? Could be worth some dough:
The PTSD from that war must have been horrifying.
That song is actually pretty catchy.
Oh man I'm humming it. I'm humming Worm War One.
It's an ear worm one.
