Summary

best game developed in 1982, it was on the top of the charts for a year

The Good

simple, and programmed perfectly. There is not one computer glitch found it this game that makes it tougher to beat.

The Bad

its endless, and very hard to beat the game in the 20 minute time limit.

The Bottom Line

If you are into classic games, this is one you have to play. This is a game defined what Activision was founded on.
