Use the blueprint. Find the pieces to create a machine to stop Ollie from catching your girl Daisy.
I recently discovered this game after ignoring it due to mediocre reviews.
An absolutely fun game! Perhaps the 5200 is the best version!
Lucas Films are always state of the art. Peter Langston developed an algorithm of 32 note melody fragments that plays fricken randomly over a repeated riff!
What an amazing game!
Unfortunately, missing opening animation of the 800 (not enough memory on cartridge?)
The game may be slow, the graphics may be pretty crappy, but the 5200 port of Xevious isn't that bad of a game. Although the 7800 version is a far better game.
Many don't know that this game can also be controlled using the number pad. When I was young I stuck 4 rubber dots to the overly creating essentially a thumb pad before Nintendo. This make this version the best home port of the time.
Please note that the skull death screen of Countermeasure was designed by Alan Murphy and exists in 2 other fashions: 1) a parody of the image with the skull smoking a cigarette was released on 04/17/20 by the National Videogame Museum: https://www.facebook.com/nvmusa/posts/1557525544416797 2) the same death screen was recycled (albeit with different colors) for CRIME BUSTER released for the XEGS by Atari Corp. in 1988.
Kangaroo was one of the last games I would find for the 5200 during the game crash. I spent many hours playing this game. It still holds up well today and the 5200 version is very well made. Highly recommend this one just give it time.
Also known as Rev1 (1982).
An excellent port of an arcade sleeper. In fact, I far prefer this port to the actual arcade game. Highly recommended.
If you're looking for a challenging 5200 game, give this one a try.
Blows away the disappointing Asteroids port by a country mile.
