A-Team (Atari 2600)

Postby VideoGameCritic » February 7th, 2016, 10:53 pm

Do instructions exist for this game? I don't think there is any possible way to sense of it otherwise.
This has the makings of a funny review.

I always check AtariProtos when I'm trying to figure out what's going on in a prototype game.

I kind of like this game, especially the A-Team music, but I am a fan of the original TV series.

Thanks for the web link Luckyman. If nothing else it validates my concern that this game makes no sense at all.
I noticed there are blue robots in my rom instead of the pizza delivery guys. Do I have the wrong version?

Y'know, somehow I never noticed that the version I was playing was different than the one on AtariProtos. Thanks for pointing that out. I found the final version with the "pizza delivery guys" on Atarimania here: http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-2600-vcs-a-team-_8577.html

I wasn't sure I liked this version as much as the earlier one. I especially miss the percussion in the A-Team tune, but the gameplay is nearly identical and the graphics are better. Plus it's much cooler fighting a helicopter at the end instead of a "jeep?"

Thanks again Luckyman. I'm reviewing the latest ROM you pointed me to, and I like it better.
It makes a little more sense... but not much!
