It started as a normal Saturday morning in Atlantis. Everybody was going about their business in the Aqua Plain, the Domed Palace and the Bridged Bazaar districts. Suddenly there was an ominous sound in the sky! Sirens wailing! The Gorgon Fleet attacked the city! My fellow citizens and me were trying hard to fend off the attack but failed! One after the other city installation was destroyed by the Gorgons until Atlantis finally exploded in a big blast! Obviously it wouldn't be possible for me to tell this story if I wouldn't have managed to escape with a few others. There's video footage about the incident and the escape of a little satellite! It's heading to the Cosmic Ark to explore space and find unknown species to repopulate Atlantis! wink

To be continued...

@omargeddon:

Some game manuals not only inform about gameplay but also give some details about the story of the game. I like the Imagic games as they really cared about a story! They even came up with the idea of this little satellite and the continuation of the story of Atlantis in Cosmic Ark! Fascinating!

Also thanks for your vote!

Yes I'd like to also play it on Intellivision and Videopac/Magnavox! I'm interested in both these systems!

Thanks for your vote!
