Wizard (Atari 2600 - a2600)

Wizard - is a video game created in 1980 for the Atari 2600 gaming system as Kris Krouford, though it was not released until 2005. ROM master takes 2K, last Atari 2600 games Atari Inc. programmed to use such a small amount.

The player plays as the master of irata on (Atari spelled backwards) and fighting imps. This occurs in a labyrinth, but it is not a balanced battle: player faster than the enemy, but the enemy can pass through walls and fire faster than the player can.

Master was innovative in several ways. There is no need to aim, since the firing angle of the player has automatically directed towards the enemy player. The enemy is invisible, when he was behind the wall, making it one of the first games for the realization of the line of sight algorithm. It was also very realistic (for the time) the heart beat that would become louder when the player approached the enemy.
