It's a great game, it takes a while to get the hang of if you are used to the first game but once you do it's a far more rewarding game in my opinion.

That video really shows the game well. It has a lot of depth. :)

Someone posted these blogs about the 2600 on Google+ and I thought I'd share them:
Story of an Atari 2600: Part 1
Story of an Atari 2600: Part 2
