I love this game! I know I'm in the minority but I really enjoy it. The 7800 version is obviously preferred but I also enjoy playing the 2600 (via the DS atari collection) on advanced mode. The action is frantic and I love swooping down grabbing power ups or treasure dodging enemies. It would be nice to see the 7800 version show up in a new flashback, done correctly of course. Any other fans of this game or am I just a strange bird?
I have the 2600 version, and I put in infinite hours playing it back in the day. Obviously, it's one of those games that just has not aged well in the slightest, and it has some really wonky play mechanics. But I do remember having fun with it as I would try to beat my high scores..
I remember searching for the hieroglyphics to warp to the end of each level on my 7800 version. I wasn't much of a "hi-score" player so while I had fun at the time I would have enjoyed it more if there had been some final end boss I was working towards.
