Skull & Crossbones (rev 5)


Skull & Crossbones (c) 11/1989 Atari Games.


Control one of two pirates (One-Eye or Red Dog), on a mission to retrieve their booty from the evil wizard. Collect treasures for points, and those ever famous hunks of meat for extra energy. This game gives you a choice of a path after each level, so there are many different paths to the ending.

- TRIVIA -


Atari Games made most of these as dedicated cabinets. They also made a conversion kit to retrofit existing games. This kit was most evil, because it was one of the few kits that had a marquee and control panel overlay big enough to fit a "Dragon's Lair" machine (the marquee was even three-fold, just like the Dragon's Lair one). Most of these games were converted within months. Very few original games remain today, and Atari quickly dropped the game from their lineup.
