Ack! Wabbit Invasion! A wascally twoop of wabbits is wampaging through your garden! Hell bent on eating your carrots. A plan quickly comes to mind. You gwab a bucket full of wotten eggs and decide to teach those wily wabbits a lesson they will never forget! Its Wabbit for the Atai 2600.
This game could have just as easily been a space shooter if the graphics were different. You control a woman who moves left and right at the bottom of the screen. Ten rows of carrots fill the upper screen. Rabbits dash in quickly and grab them one or two at a time. Fire eggs at them to make them retreat without stealing a carrot.
This game ramps up in difficulty incredibly quick. Even level two is really hard. But there is one bug that makes this game really easy. Just protect your bottom carrot row and ignore the others. When only the bottom row is left, a single rabbit will dash down this same row again and again, with a regular pattern. You can sit in one spot and shoot him every time. Making it easy to get a really high score (easy but really boring). Don't do this if you want a real challenge.
From the manual
You are a farmer, named Billie Sue, trying to protect your crops.
One patch in particular is giving you trouble. It's surrounded by
ten holes from which wabbits dart into your field. Scare off
the pesky creatures by throwing wotten eggs at them (they're in
abundance this year and worth much less than good country carrots).
The score on the left depicts the number of carrots the wabbits have
snatched and deposited in their wabbit holes. The current carrot
count increases every time a wabbit gets back into his hole with one
of your carrots. Your score increases every time you wallop a wabbit
with a wotten egg. It's an egg-citing experience.
This title is worth around $5 USD. Games with boxes and manuals are worth even more.
