    Now here is a game which has gone forgotten and overshadowed by the Activision generation.
    But it was a prestigious game to be good at and earned rep points with the gang to be good at it....well that and building a fast afx race car....

    Red Elf is on an Atari 2600 max out run, and here is one of his victims. Like John, everyone who gets the magic 99 would have had to put many jumpers into the hospital on those practice runs. Hope they had good insurance...

    Yeah many divers lives were claimed during the learning phase. I didn't have the instructions so it took a little bit to figure out how to release the shoot and that the lower you do it the more points you can score up to 11.
