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

  1. The game is incredibly barebones: you just move the cursor and shoot the animals to earn points until you run out of ammo.
  2. The aiming cursor constantly jerks and flickers, even if you're not moving it.
  3. 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.
  4. No animations whatsoever.
  5. The scenery never changes.
  6. There's no point in shooting the smaller animals, as they give very few points and are very hard to shoot.
  7. The music does not fit the gameplay.
  8. 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.
  9. 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

  1. The music, while very unfitting, is pretty good.
