The Shining: Atari 800 Style

by Conner Flynn

As far as I know, we never really got any good horror movie games on the Atari 800. But if we had gotten some good horror games for the system, they would have been very much like this version of The Shining, done in the old Atari 8-bit style by Pippin Barr.

I haven’t played Atari for awhile, so basic as it is, this game was fun – mostly because it brings back memories. They really capture the style perfectly as the “game” tells the story, complete with blood-pouring elevators, a garden maze level, and writer’s block at the typewriter. If you are fan of retro gaming and scary movies, you’ll like this one.

Now I know what an Atari horror game is like and I want more!
