Not too bad for a one-man project...
12 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As with a majority of the first games for the Atari, this was essentially a one-man project by Alan Miller. What our boy Falcon doesn't realize is that programming ANYTHING for the ATARI back then was short of insanity. Yes the Intellivision had better hardware for sound and graphics. It was also a 16-bit console compared to the Atari 2600's 8-bit chip. The appeal here was the fun of the game when playing with a friend or family member. It wasn't too involved and didn't let catchy tunes and flashy graphics spoil game play.

It's good to know the history of something before reviewing it. It's more difficult to not let 25-30 years of gaming evolution mar your view on the games of the time period.
