|Activision patch #12, Ice Hockey, Beat the computer 8-6|
Next game on my list was a harder one, I spent a few evenings tying to beat it, most of the time it would hurt my hand from cramping due to stress, pure Atari fun. This game is OInk!, and it is not a very good one. I feel that while the first screen is very colorfull and could make your think the game will be brilliant, you actually see everything on the first screen. Nothing else happens, the wolf just moves faster. and you get tired.
And I tried Space Shuttle, that game is incredible. Ingenious to use the color, level commands on the 2600 to control the space shuttle, makes it very realistic, but it is a hard game, I am not ready to compete for the patch yet.
To get the patch you must achieve 25000 points, which is not too hard after some time, but it took me a really long time to achieve the score. Now I feel that I can do it anytime, but I won't try because the game is super boring.
