👾 The lost Atari arcade game returns with Jeff Minter's Akka Arrh

Kabuki: Quantum Fighter

aka: Jigoku Gokuraku Maru


In this futuristic platform game, a computer virus has affected the Earth's defense systems. A lone warrior is transferred into digital data and sent inside the mainframe, where he becomes a Kabuki warrior. Gameplay is similar to other ninja-platformers (such as Ninja Gaiden) but with some interesting modifications, such as using your long red hair as a whip to attack enemies!

This game shortly displays 6502 assembly code on the screen. It looks like that the programmers, who were coding this game in 6502 assembly, wanted to show it off.
