Product Description

A surprisingly good rendition of the 1983 arcade game, Crystal Castles for the Atari VCS features a whopping 12 different playfields. While the original has 16, and are designed in a more complex fashion, this port's pseudo-3D graphics are executed proficiently given the limitations of the VCS hardware. Also impressive are the colorfully detailed graphics, delightful sound effects, faithfully programmed music, and the inclusion of every enemy from the coin-op classic. Missing, of course, is the ability to enter high-score initials, which in the arcade game was incorporated into the design of one of the levels. Keeping the game from greatness is its controls, which are sluggish even when played using a trackball.

5.0 out of 5 stars An old favorite December 26, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Back when video arcades were a new idea, I used to go there and play this game all the time. It was a nice alternative to all the violent games out there. The main character is a little bear (who looks a lot like Winnie the Pooh) wearing a wizard's hat. He has to run around and gather crystals as fast as he can. I especially loved the music, which was from the Nutcracker ballet. It is one of the few games that is OK for young kids. No shooting involved. It's similar to Pac-Man or Frogger, so if you like those, you'll like this. Plus, it has a cute bear and fun music.
