In space, can anyone hear you fall into a cavern?

The 1982 Games by Apollo shooter with the most Five-PM-On-A-Friday-Trying-To-Get-Out-Of-The-Office title ever, SPACE CAVERN is our focus this week in episode 121. 

Where is this cavern? Is it just floating in space? Is that even possible? Instead, is it on a planet and, if so, shouldn’t the game be called “Planet Cavern” or maybe just “Cavern”? What is an electrosauri? Why does it want to kill us?

All these questions (and more) will be answered in this week’s story (or not).*

*Which is to say, probably no questions will be answered.**

**And more will probably be generated. Such is life.

EPISODE 120: I WANT MY MOMMY

What up, moms of the world!

What better way to celebrate on the day in which we honor the mothers in the world who do so much for us than by putting on headphones and ignoring them while we listen to podcasts?

This week, on episode 120, we’re checking out I WANT MY MOMMY from Zimag. It’s a game deliberately targeted to the under-eight-year-old set. We assume that’s chronological age, not maturity level. Will this game delight us or leave us weeping for OUR mommies? 

In this week’s story, WHY exactly do we want our mommies? The mystery awaits…

EPISODE 119: SORCERER

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/6535948/height/100/width/480/thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/custom/tdest_id/342909/custom-color/#87A93A” height=”100″ width=”480″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

On episode 119 of ATARI BYTES, there’s magic all around us.

*Waits patiently for my Dr. Strange cape to wrap itself around me. Nothing happens. I sigh heavily and move on.*

We’re playing the 1983 Mythicon game SORCERER. The wizards fight the sorcerer – you – for the treasure Pitfall Harry apparently left behind. We’ll take Harry’s leftovers. We’re not picky. You could wonder why, if you’re a sorcerer, you can’t just conjur your own treasure. But perhaps it’s best not to ask so many questions. The plot in this week’s story doesn’t just have holes. It has craters. Bring your climbing equipment.
