    Zelda was simply Tutenkham with some sprites changed.

    This game is simply a graphic hack of a little-known Atari game called Tutankham. None of the items you pick up are actually used in any way, they are only for points. And there are only four levels, after which it takes you back to level 1. The difficulty does not seem to increase much in subsequent playthroughs (at least not in my experience). Nothing special here.

    You have to get the letters when they are the colors of the words at the top. So if you get the A when it’s red it goes into special, and yellow it goes into Extra. Hearts have to be blue. Should check out the Coleco version of Lady Bug, so much better.

    And the carrot on the bottom right is the vegetable that shows up in the middle when all the bugs come out.
