Welcome to our twenty-third Club VCS Recharged Squad Challenge!!! For this challenge we're playing Quantum: Recharged! Released in Summer 2023, Quantum: Recharged is a re-imagining of the obscure Atari arcade game Quantum (1982) by GCC's Betty Ryan. It's a deep-cut for the series and unique in terms of gameplay. 

Accelerate to make some distance between you and a stalking Neutron and use your dodge to avoid the Quarks' deadly laser attacks.
