Tax season is upon us and in the spirit of good citizenship we'll be playing Tax Avoiders, a quirky and often overlooked 1982 Atari 2600 game released by American Videogames. Tax Avoiders is a fairly basic game, but it's full of symbolism. You play as John Q, with the object of the game being to collect money ($ dollar signs $) while avoiding "red tape". There are 4 levels of bureaucracy which must be negotiated to earn the maximum amount of income, with the "left" and "right" divided by the "political center" with an elevator which is constantly going up and down between levels. Days and months pass by with 365 days in the year and four seasons. Once each season you'll be taken to a second screen, in which you'll try to climb up to grab the tax sheltered investment and return to put in into your portfolio. Meanwhile you can try to catch the investment advisor, while avoiding the baddies, which include an IRS agent and a CPA! Your objective in the game is to get as rich as you can in one year. I hope all of you have a good time, and remember this is for "nerd cred" and meant to be fun for all! I encourage you to share your strategies and experiences with all of us! You have until 11:59 pm PST April 14th, 2016 to complete this challenge and successfully submit your score. The ROM and Instruction Book are both provided for you below. GOOD LUCK, SQUAD!Tax_Avoiders.bin Tax Avoiders.pdf Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
