Auch andere Hindernisse wie Energiebarrieren mussen umgangen werden um das Ziel zu erreichen. Hat man schlussendlich ein Raumschiff erfolgreich zerstört und man sich innerhalb des Countdowns gerettet kommt man zur nächsten Location. Wie bereits erwähnt ist die Technik, für ein Atari 2600 Spiel, sehr ausgereift. Die Grafik ist zwar schlicht, aber durchaus ansehnlich. Es ist sogar möglich das Spiel mit Hilfe des TV Type Switches abzuspeichern, was auf dem Atari 2600 wohl nahezu einzigartig sein dürfte. Dieser Spielstand hält aber nur solange wie man die Konsole eingeschaltet lässt.

While minimal, Secret Quest’s graphics are colourful and a nifty little tune plays throughout. The control is precise and fluid. The marketing of the game centered on Atari founder Nolan Bushnell’s involvement as a producer (his company, Axlon, produced the game for Atari). Although he didn’t technically program the game, there’s no doubt that Secret Quest captures the energy and enthusiasm of early Atari.

Finally, the detonation and save codes are displayed in fancy symbols that are difficult to remember (or even write down, for that matter). As a technical achievement, Secret Quest is outstanding, but as a gaming experience, it's only very good.
