Already in progress. ;-)

This looks to be a previously unknown 2600 game by Roklan who also did Crazy Climber and RSB (they did a lot of work for Atari and Atarisoft). Probably an early effort that Atari passed on for one reason or another. I hope to do a review about it soon.

wow! Pretty exciting...can't wait to see it in all its glory! And this is one of the many reasons why I love the Atari 2600...it's like a constant treasure hunt of new and undiscovered gems! :)

What was Roklan and what games were developed there (not just published as with JV Software's Journey to the Planets)? I'd like to write up an entry for my website. I'm very interested in the contract developers of that era.

I am currently researching this and will tell all once my investigation is complete.
