Q-Bits from my personal collection – Intruder!

Welcome to another Quick Bits article. I’m giving some of Canadian Inhome Software’s games a go and will be doing a few very small blog posts in the coming weeks, nothing more than a short write-up, a few pictures, and a gameplay video.

Created by John cope and William Morris, who together had created a few very simple BASIC games, published for the Atari 8-bit in 1981 by Softside Magazine. Intruder! is a 1-player arcade game where the player must shut down a number of nuclear reactors and try and capture the robots gone mad by constructing walls from the moveable cases scattered throughout the factory floor, all before they catch you or the time runs out and everything blows to smithereens. The game was published in 1982 for the Atari 400/800 on disk and cassette by Inhome Software Incorporated, a small publishing business owned by Electronic Playworld, a chain of electronic stores in Toronto, Canada.

I played the game for nearly 30 minutes, on the easiest difficulty level, and only once managed to stay alive for more than 10 seconds…Either I’m just getting old and rusty or this game is extremely difficult
