Atari emulator -> Charles Eggleston
(later that evening) ...I LOVE this crazy-ass game! Everything has a purpose... I almost hate to spoil it, but seeing as how the game is nearing its 30th anniversary, I might as well. See that duck in the cage in the upper-left hand corner of the screen? Well, much like the same boring old final giant ship in Time Pilot '84, once you reach the upper pantheon of Charles Eggleston levels, the duck... the goose is loosed! Tracking you like a bat out of hell going for some tasty bugs, that giant damn thing follows you around the board like stank on a monkey. And then, once you complete the complete cycle of eight levels, back come the chickens! I have to try to get to level 25 now; maybe there'll be nothing at all!
