Long lost unreleased game Kick-man for the Atari 2600 found!
« on: October 26, 2019, 02:29:33 AM »
Kick-man was developed for the Atari 2600 back in 1983 and was to be published by CBS Electronics; however, the game was cancelled and never seen again. That is until Dutchman2000 and Thomas Jentzsch found the game and released it on Atari Age.  Kick-man was released in the arcades by Midway and the gameplay consists of the player controlling a clown on a unicycle moving left and right catching falling balloons on his head.  If a balloon is missed, the clown can kick it up to try to catch it.  This gameplay is nicely captured in the 2600 version.

Some nice graphics for 1983! That would've been great to play back then.
