2019/6/4: Atari 2600: Super Challenge Baseball, Treasure Island (Europe)
Posted: June 4th, 2019, 8:56 pm
Here's a pair of new Atari 2600 games. Super Challenge Baseball is a re-review (same grade) but Treasure Island is new.
Independent reviews since 1999.
Hi Video Game Critic,
Thanks for your commitment to the humble Atari VCS. I know you are a true Atari lover when you get around to reviewing an obscurity like Treasure Island!
In your review you were unsure how to reach the island. Islands appear now and then in the upper right of the screen, but when a Treasure Island appears, it has two black marks on it (they look to me like cave entries, and also a bit like the whales but smaller). You then have a small amount of time in which you can move your ship past the normal rightward boundary all the way to the island and land there. This gets you a flashing screen, a load of points, a new ship and a harder stage.
It's... not totally amazing and your grade of D- won't need to change a bit
Keep up the good work! Your site is my first go-to when I want to find out about an old game I just heard of.
