Keysone Kapers at the time was a leap forward in terms of graphics for the Atari 2600 and beyond. It had a nice palate of colors, and aimed to become an addictive game of cat and mouse. Released in 1983 this game gave a kick to Activision and helped them become a staple in the gaming history that holds true today.
The player takes control of Keystone Kelly, the greatest gumshoe going according to the back of the box, and their goal is to catch Harry Hooligan, a notorious con artist, before he reaches the end of the level, or time runs out. The player must avoid a variety of obstacles while chasing Hooligan, or they will lose time on the time limit.
