Im sure its fun with a mouse, but on a ProLine its a no go for me.



Did any of you buy this new in the 80s? If so, how did you feel about it? I feel like the guy from Princess Bride asking how it felt to have your life sucked away.

Lightgun support would have been even better IMO.

You cant, but the game was originally for Atari computers and was designed for mouse play. The trackball would have made sense on the 7800.

Cool interview with the programmer from back in 2003. Check out #4 in particular - he was against porting Crack'ed to the 7800.
