GAME DESCRIPTION

One glorious spring day you hike into a dense forest that you've never before explored. As you push deeper into the woods, the trees close up behind you and the forest grows increasingly dark and ominous.
You get a creepy feeling and decide to go back. A chill plays up and down your spine when you turn and realize you're lost. You collapse onto a flat rock beneath an enormous spreading tree and try to regain your sense of direction. A grey squirrel chatters at you. "How do I get out of here?" you sigh out loud.

Port of Atari's arcade game released in 1980. This is the first coin-op game designed by a woman, Dona Bailey but Ed Logg did the majority of the work.
