MATTEL INTELLIVISION - ATLANTIS

MATTEL INTELLIVISION ATLANTIS VIDEO GAME FOR SALE.


ANOTHER GREAT GAME. THIS VERSION IS MUCH BETTER THAN THE ATARI VERSION (ITS COMPETITION AT THE TIME). ITS FUN SO CHECK IT OUT

Play is best described as a combination of Missile Command and Defender. Thankfully the action intensifies at a slower rate than Missile Command or this game would be unplayable with the Intellivision’s ponderous and insane controller. I found my snap-on accessory joystick to be a vast improvement over the clumsy disk controller. The difficulty level is just about right—a careful eye and steady hand should be able to pick off most enemies before they get low enough to attack the city. The nighttime waves get quite a bit trickier since you now have to guess where the enemies are using only a brief moment of the spotlight’s illumination to guide you. The manual suggests saving your flying saucer for use during the night, but I personally found it easier to use the standard guns due to the possibility of an enemy getting caught in the relatively large path of fire.

Overall
Atlantis is a great game--stylish and eminently playable. The designers really created a well-detailed and imaginative game that for once lives up to the hype and bombast on the back of the box. More could have been done with music but this is a minor complaint. Your hand is likely to cramp up on you before you get sick of playing this game. I give it an 8 out of 10.
