Solar Fox (CBS Electronics 1983)
Here's a game that continues to challenge even after years of play. I can set it aside for awhile and when I come back, it rarely fails to pull me in. You have to be on top of your game with this one, because it gives little margin for error. It's basically a game of collecting while avoiding getting shot by two cannons using tons of skill, timing and strategy. It keeps ya busy. My only (minor) complaint is how unforgiving the control can be. I think you can consider yourself an accomplished Solar Fox when you successfully spell the word by mastering the bonus screens.
