A reader pointed out something I did not know about Elk Attack - you can set the starting level via the joystick!

Starting on stage 10 does provide a semblance of challenge, although the game is still way too easy in general.

I updated the review.

Quite some parts of Elk Attack were reused in IXION.

You can see this pretty clearly when you just visually compare the main kernel graphics.

Elevator Action is a fun classic arcade game with some cool elements to it. I like how you can shoot out the lights- a fun little detail. 

Mogul Maniac is a pretty good little ski game that was also released for Atari 8-bit computer. I wish I had a joyboard to play it with.
