Safecracker by Imagic 1983

It's the mission you've been waiting for --- a chance to be one of history's great spies. Your job: drive the streets of a foreign city and snatch all the secrets you can lay your hands on --- cameras, keys, microfilm, flasks of chemicals and bars of gold bullion! You've got a car, a hideout and plenty of TNT. Now all you need is the skill to crack safes. And the courage to defy the Secret Police. It's dangerous, sure. If you make too many mistakes you'll see the inside of a foreign prison --- with no time off for good behavior! Your country is counting on you. Good luck... and good hunting!

I think this may be the only Intellivision game I have never made any attempt to play!

Time for a deep dive for sure.

It's kind of fun once you get somewhat used to the crazy controls. It's a good thing we are playing the Easy Level, both the Medium and Hard Levels are ridiculous... Like NOT fun at all.....

My Safecracker Update: Getting a little better at the game. The car steering is still pretty awful and beware cuz the other cars on the road, they DO NOT stay on the right side. They are all over the place. Accidents-O-Plenty!!! 🙄

 

I did manage to swipe the GOLD BULLION this time around. 👍

 

 

SAFECRACKER - EASY LEVEL - 6,400 POINTS!!!

I've also never played it--not sure I've even heard of this one, but I like the theme. 

 

I've fallen off my attempt to at least play every game this season at least once--time to jump back in!

At least the embassies are a little easier to find than the RAM sections in Maze-a-TRON!

Second attempt.  Kinda getting the hang of it.  Thinking the best strategy for avoiding other cars is just U-turns.

The cars are absolutely AWFUL. I can speed through everything else, but the cars driving on the wrong side of the road are a death knell for me everytime..... 🤬

My Safecracker Update: Managed to squeeze out a few hundred more points. The game is cool all except the driving, that part is downright awful.... 👎

3,600 test tubes!

Easy level

This spy is way better at opening safes than he/she is at driving!
