Summary

The O2 version of Atlantis is very good

The Good

This game plays similar to other versions of Atlantis, with a couple of minor changes. You have only two gunners, but if you press up and fire, you also get one smart bomb burst per level that wipes out all the visible enemies.

Very nice presentation - the graphics are about as good as you get on the O2. Sounds effects are okay. Lots of onscreen colours and explosions.

The Bad

There's not much to dislike. About the only negatives are the lack of variations in gameplay - and where is the Cosmic Ark at the end, like in the 2600 version?

This cart is rare, and unfortunately very expensive to buy.

The Bottom Line

If you can find a copy for a reasonable price, buy it.
