    Adventure is my vote. Pitfall and Pitfall 2 would by my other top choices.

    Porkey's would be the first I would vote off.

    Check feeBay and other sites for game box art fridge magnets. I saw some Atari ones along with some others. I've got an NES Tetris one that is currently decorating my office cubical.

    Adventure immediately came to mind once I heard of this months top ten. Great box for a great game.

    I will go with Marauder, it looks simular to Blood Money on the Commodore, such a brilliant game. Adventure is a close second.

    I went with Yars' Revenge - my favorite Atari 2600 game. :-)

    When you think you are a tough avenger, switch the difficulty to A, and then try Ultimate Yars!

    Thanks for passing this on!

    I had forgotten about the Warlords box art. That is another one I would put in the top 10 instead of Porkey's. I like Warlords the most, second only to Adventure.

    Having said that, I do respect RGRs philosophy of doing the top 10 as they see it regardless of what others think.

    Pitfall 2 and Porky`s for OUT,Pitfall! 2 box art is dreadful lol.
    Personally I prefer Defender over Defender II so that is another strange choice,I mean those ghostly hands reaching down are spooky

    Talking of spooky l think that Haunted House should be nominated too,but anyway out of the host pics I will go with-
    1.Adventure
    2.Vanguard
    3.Yars Revenge
    4.Space Invaders
    and then the rest lower down anywhere I guess..
