This game must be kinda rare. I haven't been able to find any game play videos of it on the "interwebs....not even those dang you tubes have it." I hope it's a fun one!

It's Atari's Sky Diver but they changed the name to Dare Diver for the Sears version for some reason. It is quite a bit harder to find than the Atari version :) Congrats on picking it up.

Thanks for the cool contest, FocusRS. Congrats, Indie. It's a really simple but fun game. One of my early Atari favorites - still like it today.

Nice one Brumi! No this is yet another game that will be sent to my Dad's house so that I can practice my Tetris skills by fitting all of the games and consoles that I've recently purchased into two suitcases. Basically I've been on a major retro gaming hunt lately and soon I will have a crap ton of retro stuff to bring back to Korea with me. :) It's going to be a very retro gaming themed Christmas this year!
