Although it is flickery as hell the 2600 version is still very good and has a certain charm. The C64 and Atari 8-bit both got excellent conversions, the 5200 iteration included. The Bally Astrocade conversion is very nice for such an old console.

The Atari ST version is missing from that video which I have reviewed HERE!

Picked up the 2600 version (as a nipper, whilst on holiday in Wales), had no idea of the origins of the game, it just sounded fun, played it, loved it, hammered it.
