That is one of the cooler game box art I've seen.
Oh shit, I had this on Commodore! Totally forgot about this game.
This seems really neat. I'm gonna start imagining a XBLA remake now, it could be awesome.
Pee'd myself @ 10:20. That was intense, Jeff!
Oh god, Columbia House!
What do the squares do? I have to know!
Out of all the Bombastica games that have interested me but not enough to play them, this one looks really awesome.
That cover art is pretty cool, and the game seems interesting too.
Jumping spider ships Batman!
Watching this brought back memories of "Computer Warrior" in Eagle back in the day: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_Warrior
Oh man, I was so anxious around 10:38. JEFF YOU CRAY!
I wanted to see his next rank :(
This is actually a genuinely cool game that sparks my imagination. Excellent use of limited hardware.
I've no idea why but I'm getting a real Panzer Dragoon vibe from this. Maybe I'm biased though.
This game actually looks really cool.
The graphics style really reminds me of Andrew Braybrook's Alleykat.
Oh man, I thought you meant THIS Alley Cat! So much frustration this game caused me as a kid!
If your ever trapped in a nuclear fallout just shoot the crystals!
That explosion sound effect is awesome.

Hah no, the game I'm talking about is a sort of shooter/racing hybrid for the C64, which came out a couple of years after Pastfinder (and Alley Cat)
I remember playing this more than 20 years ago but it I wasn't quite sure what you were supposed to do... Anyway I think this would be a great addition to an Atari 800 Activision/Epyx compilation on consoles or the Vita or something, along with titles like Pitfall 2, H.E.R.O, River Raid, Keystone capers, Space Shuttle, Ballblazer, Temple of Apshai, Jumpman, Summer Games etc... Throw in Star Raiders and the 8 bit Atari could finally rest in peace :)
I'd love to pilot a spider-like ship. LOVE.
I would like to see an Encyclopedia Bombastica of Adventure for Atari
I'm usually not interested in games pre-NES era, mostly because it was before my time, but this game really caught my attention. With today's "re-make old properties" market I think this would have a ton of potential to be updated.
This game looks pretty awesome. XD
