Ultimate Play The Game‘s jolly horror adventure Atic Atac was released for the ZX Spectrum in 1983 and became an instant hit. And it’s not hard to see why: within seconds of playing this overhead action game you will fall in love with its humorous presentation and characters. Everyone does.
The task is simple: you are trapped inside a haunted mansion and must collect three pieces of a big key and use it to escape out the front door. With some determination this task is just about possible.
Atic Atac also features iconic use of sound. The sound effects for footsteps, dying, and reincarnating all contribute massively to this charming game’s overall character.
