Bank Heist is a perfect example of playing off of an old idea and doing something original. Pac-Man on the 2600 just sucks, and this game is yet another title that fills the void nicely while taking a completely different direction. If you want to see a precursor to Grand Theft Auto, look no further! Bank Heist pushes the envelope in its presentation, design, and play. A great title. I strongly recommend it to any Atari 2600 fan who's looking for a Pac-Man style game that does it right and does it different. And if you've never played the 2600 before, I dare say this is a great game to start off with.

Damit der Spaß weder zu einfach, noch zu öde wird, hängen euch eine ganze Reihe blauer Polizeiwagen am Heck. Ähnlich wie die Geister aus Pac-Man dürfen sie euch nicht erwischen, da ihr sonst eines eurer anfänglich fünf Bildschirmleben los seid. Allerdings seid ihr nicht ganz wehrlos - per Knopfdruck werft ihr Dynamit hinten hinaus, welches verfolgende Cops schrottet. Vorsicht ist aber geboten, da das explosive Gut mit seiner Zielwahl nicht zimperlich ist und mitunter euch ebenfalls ins Game Over reißt, solltet ihr euch nicht schnell genug davon machen.

The graphics aren't much to look at, with the exception of those nifty old-time cars with the spinning wheels. Bank Heist is more involved than your typical maze game and takes a few plays to get the hang of it. But once you do it's quite satisfying in the later stages where the action becomes fast and furious.

Unremarkable Pac-Man/Lock ‘n Chase-style maze chase game. You drive around various “cities” (mazes) robbing banks while avoiding the mons… I mean “police.” It’s playable but gets repetitive awfully fast. Graphics are a little flat and uninspiring. It’s frustrating how the cop cars spawn out of nowhere – you don’t have much of a fighting chance when one suddenly materializes in front of you. I find it a little amusing that we’re only two letters into the alphabet and there are already two Pac-Man clones from 20th Century Fox. Alien was much better though
