Atari A to Z: The Eliminator

These days, we tend to expect multi-format releases to have if not complete parity, then certainly as close an experience as possible to one another.

That wasn’t always the case, though, and I can think of few better examples of this that Adventure International’s The Eliminator, which somehow became an entirely different game between its original TRS-80 incarnation and its Atari 8-bit “port” by Steve Coleman.

It’s a fun little blast ’em up, though, so I’m not mad or anything; I just thought it was interesting!

One thought on “Atari A to Z: The Eliminator”

  1. Gotta love the old computer clubs! Maybe not very legitimate but there was this wonderful kind of ethic among members to share software and give everyone a chance to get the best out of their computers. I would have been lucky to have been exposed to a tiny fraction of the games I did if not for my local club. My choice of career may been quite different too!
