There’s some sim­ple, sin­gle-screen ac­tion in Great Green Ad­ven­ture for the Atari 8-bit but, de­spite play­ers hav­ing over two hun­dred lives and no time limit to worry about, this game is se­ri­ously hard; touch­ing a sin­gle pixel of the back­ground is fa­tal and sends the green blob back to the start of the stage. Brave ad­ven­tur­ers who don’t mind some frus­tra­tion can start their quest be­hind Kik­start.eu/great-green-a8.

Kik­start.eu/snake-gb slith­ers over to the ap­pro­pri­ate thread at the Nes­dev fo­rums.
