Before you undertake this game, make sure you have the joystick coupler and two GOOD joysticks. Space Dungeon is an obscure Taito arcade game, and this 5200 version is so good that I can hardly believe it. It's a combination of Robotron and Venture, so if you like those games, you'll really dig this. The object is to complete a series of levels, each composed of a grid of square rooms. You must eliminate all the aliens and collect all the treasures before escaping to the next level. Your star-shaped ship can move and shoot in eight directions. Space Dungeon's control scheme is just like Robotron - the left joystick moves your ship and the right joystick shoots laser beams. A grid on top of the screen maps out the rooms you've been in and indicates your current location. Another box displays the treasures you've gathered. Space Dungeon is so addicting and challenging that the slight choppiness and slow-down can be forgiven. Space Dungeon will make you feel glad you have a 5200!
Space Dungeon offers intruiging, high-tech graphics, riveting audio accompaniment and just the proper amount of strategic viability. The Robotron-esque action will challenge you, and the exploration element of the game will tantalize you. It's arguably the best game on the 5200 and reason enough to own a SuperSystem.
Space Dungeon was released into homes solely on the Atari 5200 and its a gem of a game - one of the best for this console. With 99 levle that are increasingly difficult, this game will keep you on your toes and offers good re=-play value. Definitely a game worthy of your Atari 5200 colleciton.
Space Dungeon is a must-have for fans of the fast and furious shoot-em-up. Unlike your average blast them to bits contest, Space Dungeon offers a degree of intrigue and suspense normally found only in a fantasy/adventure game.
