Hunter is a 1995 shooting game developed by Condor Soft and published by Power Per Post exclusively for the Atari 8-bit series of computers. It was only released by mail order in Germany.
Why it Sucks
- The game is incredibly barebones: you just move the cursor and shoot the animals to earn points until you run out of ammo.
- The aiming cursor constantly jerks and flickers, even if you're not moving it.
- Bad graphics: the animals barely represent what they're supposed to be. The deer, for example, looks like it has a sock for a face.
- No animations whatsoever.
- The scenery never changes.
- There's no point in shooting the smaller animals, as they give very few points and are very hard to shoot.
- The music does not fit the gameplay.
- When you run out of ammo, the game says that you turned around and ran away, accidentally smacked into a deer and fell over, and had to spend a few days in a hospital.
- This game was released in 1995, the same year when the Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn were already out in Europe, which is incredibly late for an Atari 8-bit title.
The Only Redeeming Quality
- The music, while very unfitting, is pretty good.
- This game is featured on the cover of Stuart Ashen's book Terrible Old Games You've Probably Never Heard Of.
