Atlantis is hands-down one of the best games available for the Atari 2600.
The Atari Times (Oct 12, 2001)
Atlantis can be said to be a bit like Defender and a bit like Space Invaders, but in my opinion, it's more entertaining than either, and a fun game to this day.

Grafisch überzeugt das Modul durch eine stimmige Farbwahl und eine deutlich erkennbare Stadt bzw. Flakanlagen. Leider ist es mit der Abwechslung abgesehen von der Vielfalt gegnerischer Raumschifftypen nicht ganz soweit her, weshalb dem Modul trotz guter Leistung eine bessere Wertung verwehrt bleibt. Auch der mickrige Sound hält sich leider nur allzu scheu zurück.
Imagic Atlantis is a beautiful shooter, set in an imaginative underwater city, with a few twists. The 3 fixed-aim cannons make the targeting interesting as well as the Gorgon death-ray from above. It's an interesting game with a Missile Command feel. Defying the blocky games that littered the 2600, it's a pleasure to blast alien ships in such a vibrant setting.

Atlantis is an interesting game to look back on, but its gameplay is undeniably shallow. For a better, fully realized version, check out the Intellivision edition.

Eine „Kriegs-Cassette“, ja, aber wieder eine, bei der die Reaktion im Vordergrund steht. Die Grafik beeindruckt!

The only good thing that came out of Atlantis is the sequel, Cosmic Ark, which is a lot of fun. This title is nothing more than derivative. Nothing new other than impressive graphics and good sound. Just like today's market, you can't win people over for very long on graphics alone. Sometimes, you have to make the game itself good. Atlantis definitely is not. If you really want to play it in a good form try the Intellivision version, which adds a lot including an awesome nighttime scene where enemies are visible only by spotlight. Forget the Atari version.

Munido de dois canhões, você deve repelir o ataque, acertando os inimigos e impedindo a conquista de suas posições. Vale a habilidade e a pontaria.
