Superman - Atari 2600

God, I played this for a million hours. At the time I thought it was revolutionary. At the time, it was.

Oh God!
Remember Adventure? And finding the dot so you could see the secret room?

oh my god, I don't remember it, but I can feel the hole in my memory where I must have been seeking that dot. Tell me more.

Somewhere in the middle of the maze area was a square "room" with no entrance.

Using the bridge you could create a doorway to that room and grab the "dot" hidden inside of it.

When you took that dot all the way to the east, under the castle, you'd get to see the name of the programmer who created it.

At the time Atari was against crediting the creators. Atari was the brand. They made hiding Easter eggs a firing offense.

I can't remember if I remember it, or remember hearing about it!

Adventure! Man, we played that for hours as kids.

I forgot how awful the sound effects for this game were. We are spoiled now with the top-notch sounds of our new video toys.

My son is just amazed I ever thought this was fun.
