Graphically, there isn't much to look at with only a few colors used for the mountains and guns, which are terribly drawn. A few squares in the shape of a cannon would have been an improvement. The Atari 2600 is certainly capable of looking better! And the sound isn't much better, consisting of three basic sounds: the gunshot, the explosion, and the marching of soldiers. Overall, Artillery Duel moves so slow that most gamers will have trouble concentrating for more than a few minutes.
Sure it's a challenge, but there's no payoff. I remember typing in games like this on my old Atari computer in the early 80's. There's just not enough game here.
