Halloween (Wizard Video Games 1983)
I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one, being that I'm a huge fan of John Carpenter's cinematic masterpiece, plus the decent reviews I heard about this game. The reality is that this slasher title doesn't live up to it's reputation. The graphics are second rate, a bunch of rooms that look the same with too few places that Michael Myers can come out and surprise you from. It progressively gets more challenging, but it remains a boring play. You get spurting blood, and (unlike the movie) Michael goes after the children. I like the pumpkins and the music, but, nevertheless, this game is a total snore.
