Demon Attack - Cartridge

DescriptionSubmit Description
Easily one of the most loved games on the 2600, Demon Attack is a shooter that really shows off the colorful graphics that were a staple of the Imagic library. At first glance one might mistake Demon Attack for Phoenix. This is due to the waves of bird-like aliens that swoop down at your lonely laser cannon. The pulsing sounds rise in pitch as you destroy the creatures one by one. Just when you think you've wiped them all out, another wave begins, this time even harder than the last one.

Many players enjoy Demon Attack because of its simple yet fun game play. Others love it because it is easy to rack up large scores and long games due to the fact that you are rewarded with an extra laser cannon for each wave you complete. This game also has a couple of ways for two players to play together, either competing against one another or in co-op mode where control of the cannon alternates between players.
