THE WORST ATARI 2600 VIDEO GAMES
by Mark Nobes, chief editor
Another amazingly crap game, that's what!
The first video clip features the game Pac Kong for the Atari 2600. Not only is the game dull, but it's also virtually impossible to play with those flickering bats - at least, I think they're bats? Trying to judge where they will appear is almost impossible, making the game a total nightmare to play.
Watching the video clip above it seems that the playability was pretty dire, with the sound effect of hitting your opponent sounding even when you're no where near them! That seems like pretty bad programming, and I could have done better than that using Atari BASIC.
CHUCK NORRIS SUPER KICKS
This martial arts game was released in 1983 by Xonox for the Atari 2600, Colecovision, Commodore VIC-20 and C64. Apart from the graphics, sound and gameplay, this game is brilliant! Seriously, though, the controls are clumsy and there is a complete lack of a storyline. Finding the correct path to take is pure trial and error and walking on grass kills you - who ever heard of grass killing a martial arts expert? Apparently, the C64 version is even worse than this one - blimey!
