Texas Chainsaw Atari Style!

/ 7 years ago

Shortly after The Texas Chain Saw Massacre established itself as a success on home video in 1982, Wizard Video released a mass-market video game adaptation for the Atari 2600. In the game, the player assumes the role of the film’s primary antagonist, Leatherface, and attempts to murder trespassers while avoiding obstacles such as fences and cow skulls. As one of the first horror-themed video games, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre caused controversy when it was released due to the violent nature of the video game and sold poorly because many game stores refused to stock it. Wizard Video’s other commercial release, Halloween, based on John Carpenter’s 1978 film, had a slightly better reception.

So now you can be a cube trying to kill other cubes while not getting tripped up by rectangles and triangles. That is assuming you still have an Atari 2600 and you’re able to hook it up to your TV.
