It is time for for some News from AtariBoxed :cool:

 

We are happy to show you today some box-scans and screenshots of this very rare game, maybe never shown elswhere before.

As of today, this is the only version of which I know so far.

Our supporter AdryMorci has found this game boxed a while ago and made some scans and screenshots for us.

Many thanks to him.

Great find!
I hope the rom can be dumped for preservation.

I just had a look at the entry for this game on Atarimania, and it lists it as a different version of "Frisco".
Probably that seemed reasonable by looking at the game description on the box, but after seeing the screenshots, it's clearly a different game.

So this is a unique game? Pretty cool if so.

Great work, guys!

It looks like a Pengo type game, but it's not the same as Pengo, Frisco or Stone age.

I truly hope the ROM will be dumped.

It's a unique VCS game.

Thanks for sharing!

Bloody Hell very impressive.  About time that was found.  Well done.

Very cool and exciting news! I'm curious why the cart was given a rarity of 9? Seems a perfect candidate for an R10 to me.

Yes, that's worth considering.
Some titles require an overdue update. this title would be one of them.

 I also thought about Pengo when I saw the first screenshots.

 

gameplay and sounds are different.

Has anyone any information about Datatech Enterprises? Nowadays it´s nearly impossible to get any information about that firm.
