Now this is a unique game. This is a one or two player game. You can opt for: player vs. player, player vs. computer, even computer vs. computer! In the Atomic Arena, you and a partner take on unstable atomic particles. The object of the game is to blast these atomic particles out of the arena's moving doors and score points. If you get touched by one of these, you start to 'melt'. You can melt several times before it's ĎAdios Muchachosí. If you succeed moving the particles out of the arena, you move to the next level of the game. In this arena you will simply struggle to survive. You can only move vertically along the walls of the arena to avoid contact with the atoms. Whatever your condition is from the first level will carry on to this level. This adds a little more challenge to this level. Hang in as long as you can to make it past this level. Left hand players rejoice! At the main screen you have the option of picking 'right handed or left handed player' via the difficulty switches which is very unique, I believe a 2600 first. Said and done, this is a fun and challenging game. It has good game play, good sound and graphics and a good replay value.
