Re: Satan's Hollow

Huh. This appears to be from the author of the TRON arcade game.

Thanks for posting this. This game appears to have inspired the Tandy Color Computer game "Devil Assault". I thought Devil Assault seemed very similar in style to something else I'd seen, but never figured out what.

Devil Assault also "borrows" elements from Demon Attack.

I've been cooking up an arcade-centric topic myself; maybe I'll expedite that since the subject has been raised.

I'd often pass on Asteroids Deluxe in favor of a game where I could last more than a minute or so. But it's crazy-intense fun trying to survive once the initial asteroids are broken apart and fragments are flying everywhere. I barely recall something about the sound being strange; it'd get louder and then act flaky, maybe during the UFO attacks.

Satan's Hollow is a game that seems to get less recognition. Surprising that it was released to begin with, given some of the hysteria over the occult-themed music of the time. Having to build the bridge adds a lot of challenge to the common scenario of fending off waves of attackers. After a couple of rounds the cloud of gargoyles swarming overhead increases to an imposing size and the going gets much tougher. A game as merciless as its namesake.
