Atari 8-bit Computer Demon Attack (1982) – Full Boxed Edition (all the old crap in my attic)

By Jeff Fulton

Today we are going to take a look at one of a small handful of Atari 8-bit computer game cartridges that I have stowed in my attic. This time the game is Demon Attack, one of the most popular Atari 2600 games, but this version is for the Atari computers. Without a translator disk, this will not work on an XL or XE computer.

Originally released in 1982, this is the original Atari 8-bit Computer version of Demon Attack – Full Boxed Edition. Rob Fulop was the original designer / programmer for the Atari 2600 version, while Dave Johnson is credited with coding effort on this version.

There were many fewer of these produced for the Atari computers than for the 2600, but it is essentially the exact same game. It is an excellent title for both systems. It was also released for these systems (according to Wikipedia): Commodore VIC-20, Commodore 64, Intellivision, Odyssey², PC Booter, Texas Instruments TI-99/4A, TRS-80.

Below this comprehensive set of photos of the un-boxing, you will find you-tube videos to compare some of the various versions.
