Description

In this game you play the role of a man who has been deatomized by a rogue 6502 processor and are now trapped inside the computer. The gameplay involves you running around a maze collecting both the key which opens up the exit for the level and also the program disk. The MCP is following you all the time and if it makes contact with you you lose a life. There are also walls and blocks which switch from visible to invisible making it harder to run as you can't walk through them.

Trivia

Development

Mike Blackman developed this game when he was 15, and it paid for his first car. He received no money from the UK release however.

Inspiration

In an unusual turnaround the game's background story is highly derivative of the then-recent movie Tron (also featuring an antagonist MCP or Master Control Program) while the gameplay does not draw on any of the movie's frequently-cloned game sequences.
