Sinclair User Top 50 Spectrum Software Classics - 7/50

Set in a gothic castle with the dungeons and caverns below, Atic Atac is a superb arcade adventure. You move from room to room collecting parts of the golden key. Monsters galore seek to stop you, and there are other objects which help you in your quest. Atic Atac would have been a fine game anyway, bvut the care lavished on the program makes it outstanding. You have a choice of three characters to play, whose powers effectively create three games. The attention to detail is splendid, with humourous touches such as the roast chicken status indicator.


The last of Ultimate's £5.50 games, but a game that is in every sense of the word a classic. I played this the first day I had my Speccy, Xmas Day '83 and played it non-stop for about four hours. That says it all really.
