Sweet pick! I've always liked Wizard of Wor, because it reminds me a ton of my all time favorite movie Aliens. You're basically a space marine wandering around a maze-like complex shooting creatures that look suspiciously like xenomorphs. They could have just replaced the wizard and his pet that shows up at the end of some rounds with a facehugger and an alien queen then called it Aliens: The Video Game and I don't think anyone would have questioned it :lol:

 

Anyway, starting off this round right with a new personal best high score! My previous personal best was 42,700 and after half an hour of practice and a bit of luck I got...

 

 

Wizard of Wor (Game 1, B/B difficulty): 44,100

I have to be honest, I'm not feeling it with this one so far. I've got to a score that is hopefully halfway respectable, and will leave it at that for now. I might give it another go later in the week to see if it grows on me

Every time I see that CRT I can't help but think that you've got the most beautiful retro TV on all of AtariAge! That entertainment center is just gorgeous! 😍

Same here!  Reminds me of my friends Zenith console TV growing up that was a bit larger than this one with a turn table on one side and a stereo tuner on the other.  The TV even had a Zoom feature to zoom in the picture (not very useful but so cool).

Wizard of Wor (1 B/B): 67,400

 

Good port of this game.  The Atari computer version was one of my favorite games especially with a friend.

 

Positioning yourself such that your shot does not go too far when your fire is key as you can only have one shot on screen and cannot re-fire until it hits a wall or enemy.
