ATARI 2600 CARTRIDGE [UNRELEASED #5860]
AKA High Seas
Produced by APh Technology Consultants for Mattel Electronics
Program: Larry Zwick, Bruce Pederson
This is a the Atari 2600 version of the Intellivision Sea Battle cartridge. In at least one brochure it appeared with the name High Seas, keeping with the policy of changing game titels for the Atari versions.
Although the game was finished and announced for a 1982 release, Marketing cancelled it at the last minute. This was most likely caused by a new policy, ther result of market research, to only release games that had a one-player mode. Sea Battle requires two players.
Despite the catalog description above, there are no mines in the game.
