Summary

Controversial first Adult themed game for a home system.

The Good

The controversy was more interesting than the gameplay. As a 21 year old owner of an Atari 2600 I was intrigued at the concept of an "Adult" game. All games at the time were for kids. It seemed like the video game industry was going to mature. So even when the game turned out to be a stinker it had redeeming qualities in it's effect. And when you finally get to play it is really funny for the first few minutes.

The Bad

When it came out it was only available in video rental stores. The price was outrageous at $50 and they even rented it for $5 a night versus the $2 a night for all other games. There was a waiting list so it took a few weeks to finally get to play it. And the gameplay is repetitive and boring, which was a good thing because it kept people from keeping it for more than a day.

The Bottom Line

Without getting in to the adult descriptions the game is basically two characters on opposite sides of the screen. You must advance your character to the other side and complete a task. There are objects falling you must avoid along the way. And you must retreat to start the whole process all over again. Over and over again.
