Break out the old 2600 and hook up the console TV because here come The Mercury Men!

The Mercury Men console game had players firing on invaders and dodging lightning all while climbing the floors of the building to reach the "brain."

NOTE: There was not actually a Mercury Men video game. We're just having some fun. But while were on the subject, what is your favorite Atari game?
