Atlantis Attacked, Plato despondent.

The Good

The concept behind this game was an intriguing one, as you strive to save Atlantis from its attackers. The graphics are quite good, and the gameplay is addictive, as you strive to get past one more wave in this well done shooter. I also enjoyed the ending of the game; when you die, a lone blip is seen leaving the ruins of Atlantis, representing the Cosmic Ark shuttling the survivors to a better place...and another Atari 2600 game.

The Bad

The gameplay and graphics were top-notch, but it would have been nice to have had good sound as well. The sound effects were adequate, but in a game of this caliber, their mediocrity stands out.

The Bottom Line

This is a shooter where you must defend your city of Atlantis from attack by destroying the never-ending waves of enemy ships.
