Days ago I was playing with the Atari 2600 and the Harmony Cartdrige and I remembered a game called “Space Tunnel”, I never had, but I have a cousin who always lent to a colleague and brought home for us to play. It was one of our favorite games.
Once I've been reminded pick you up at Harmony menu, but when loaded the name of ROM “Space Tunnel” It appeared a very different game than I was looking for, developed by Bit Corporation:
Was my failing memory? I checked all the games list to see if he thought any other name name that could be the game I was looking for, but found nothing.
I then decided to turn to Google and I ended up finding the solution to the mystery in Atarimania. Here is the screenshot “Space Tunnel” of my childhood:
My memory has not failed! The real name of the game is Spacemaster X-7, as released by 20th Century Fox / Fox Video Games, but in Brazil the Polyvox released it as “Space Tunnel”, do not know whether by mistake or on purpose. It in Atarimania has to scan the hood and manual:
Not only have changed the game name, Activision put a logo on the cartridge, being that Activision has nothing to do with any of the two games, seen five or “Space Tunnel” original é da Bit Corporation e o “SpaceMaster X-7” é da 20th Century Fox / Fox Video Games. And to cover the Polyvox chosen for your “Space Tunnel” It has more resemblance to the “Space Tunnel” original do que com a do “SpaceMaster X-7”, the fact that the game is contained in the cartridge.
And to add to the confusion, CCE launched “Space Tunnel” original here, including making that traditional slutty replacing the original producer of the logo for her own:
Then Brazil ended up having two games named “Space Tunnel”, whereas the Polyvox was actually the “SpaceMaster X-7”. It is worth checking this game, which starts relatively easy but has increasing difficulty and slowly gets pretty hard.
