Atari A to Z Flashback: Super Baseball

People complain these days when a sequel is too similar to its predecessor.

Count yourself lucky you didn’t fall for Atari’s 1988 release of Super Baseball, then, which is actually just a very slightly tweaked version of RealSports Baseball from the early ’80s. Complete with all the flaws of that original version, plus a pretty much impenetrable difficulty wall in single-player mode.

    1. Yeah, Home Run is pretty dreadful — at least in single player. I can imagine it being reasonably fun in two-player, but its single player kind of suffers the same problem as this one: the computer player is just able to respond immediately to everything you do, so it’s impossible to achieve anything!

      1. I’d say that the limited hardware capabilities are to blame for that, but then games like Real Sports Tennis were far more reasonable. With the way the screen is set up, I right Home Run sometimes like more like cricket than baseball too.
