Welcome to our 24th Club VCS Recharged Squad Challenge!!! For this challenge, we're taking on SqueakyBox and Atari's take on the APX cult hit Caverns of Mars!

The original Caverns of Mars was was famously programmed a teenage Greg Christensen for the Atari Program Exchange (APX) in 1981 for the Atari 8-Bit. It went on to become the best selling APX game program ever.  Atari included the game in the Atari50 collection.

More than 40 years later, Atari returned to the red planet with Caverns of Mars: Recharged! Progress through 30 unique missions set within three primary “depths” of Mars, descending deeper and deeper into enemy territory. Blast through oncoming hostile fire, bull through debris and obstructions, and dodge other obstacles all while keeping a close eye on fuel and ammo reserves!

Play in ARCADE mode from level one and take the game as far as you can for the high score!

I didn't do real well tonight. 36k was my high, but 14k was it so far. Been a minute since I played this one. I like it more each time I play it.
