Atari emulator -> Fortune Hunter

I'm just a sucker for tempests in a teapot like Romox's "Fortune Hunter"... then again, I'm also relieved I didn't spend $39.95 for it back in the day thirty years ago.  For those of you who want to know what computer speed was like back then, this is a great example.  Graphics 7 was a particularly slow mode.  Sure, not as slow as 8, but still.  This kinda reminds me of "Temple of Apshai", the one that you had to run in Basic, and not "Gateway to Apshai," which was larger in scope by far.  The closest thing we had to Doom for the Atari was "Encounter" by Synapse Software.  Not as violent, anyhow.
