The Game that (almost) single-handily destroyed the Video Game industry.

we need achievements on this masterpiece

Reviewed the existing unofficial set, promoted it, and added two leaderboards.

Nearly all achievements must be earned on the default hard difficulty. Exceptions: "Learn How to Play" and the 3 Easter eggs which can be earned on easy (setting 3).

Good set. Bad game.
Dogmeatman 12 Jan 2020 20:49
Pretty amazing game considering the hardware limitations and HSW was given only six weeks from design to delivery. If it wasnt for the annoyances of falling in the pits when you didnt want to, this would be among the greats of the 2600 games.
Keltron3030 13 Jan 2020 15:55
I don't disagree. Could have changed the course of history.

I just noticed the box art for the first time. Seeing it made my day. Please never change it.

Great set design, it teaches players how the game works.

Tips for dealing with pits: you fall when any part of your sprite overlaps with them. If you fall, press the button (without holding directions) while in the air to begin floating so that you don't lose too many points. You don't need to hold the button to float, you're free to move up or safely descend to get a phone piece. When you reach the top, start pressing left or right to avoid falling back down, and find a safe place to land.

misunderstood (and very unpolished) masterpiece
julienktl 25 Sep 2022 21:30
This is not a bad game but when I fall just after I have reached the top make me sad.

Mastered. I forgot what an absolute aggressive jackass the FBI agent is.
