springy snakes and balls

what a diagonal scheme

oh the expletives

 

Q*bert?

 

always on the run

day, night, fog, snow, then all clear

flags at number one

 

Enduro?

Atari-Derived Verse Expressing a Noble Tale Using Rhyming English

(or: A Sexpartite Haiku Micro-Epic with Easter Eggs)

 

move and poke about
access found but maybe not
proximal or right

keep your faith devout
each grate opens on the spot
yellow, black and white

blind erratic route
abject greed and fiendish plot
takes without a fight

disbelief gives out
on you go with tiny dot
touch the name in light

captured roundabout
unlike other prey you've caught
pulsing colors bright

echoes climb and shout
now you boast of battles fought
daring, humble sprite

Ohhh, such a good thread!

It's particularly hard for me as english isn't my main language.

But really like some of those above, so I'll post mine just in case someone enjoys that.

Easy guess:

 

 

Rows of Invaders,

Next are lasers and whirlwinds,

Mothership, repeat.

They attack at night.


Remorseless, relentless doom.

Joystick back and forth

Back and forth and back and forth

Joystick has broken

 

Sounds like Track & Field or Decathlon.

 

Or someone who really gets into Space Invaders. ;)

Decathlon was what I was going for but I can see T&F and some of the X-rated games fitting the description 😉
