Atic Atac

Post by paranoid marvin » Sat Jan 28, 2006 12:07 am

At last I can complete Atic Atac
Don't know why I can now, but couldn't 20 years ago!
Don't think I've got a good enough time yet,but how has anyone else done?
And does anyone know if you can kill all the monsters?

Oh, I remember Atic Atac. It was back eastern 1984. I am from Luxembourg, and we went to England to play at a soccer tournament in Brentford. There we stood for 5 days and we split up into several families. The guy I stood with, had a Speccy, and at the time, I didn't have a computer yet (got my C64 a year later). And we played Atic Atac all the time, I just loved that game. Haven't played it ever since, I think I'm gonna run my emulation and play it.

im not sure what you have to do tbh

find all the keys (i never found the red key)
visit every room on every floor? (i dont think i did)
open every coloured door? (i didnt open the red ones)
find all 3 gold key pieces and put em together and escape ( i did that)
and you dont actually kill the monsters (vampire, mummy, frankenstein etc) i think you get the weapon and they just dont come near you
