Mountain King is a game released for the Atari 2600, Atari 5200, and ColecoVision.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

You are an explorer who's out to find the crown of the Mountain King and bring it up to the Eternal Flame to claim it as yours. First you must collect enough diamonds to awaken the Flame Spirit. Then you must use your ears and your flashlight to find the Flame Spirit. Once you do, grab it and present it to the Skull Spirit, who guards the altar of the crown. Take the crown and quickly reach to the top of the mountain where the Eternal Flame is before the Cave Bats steal it back or before the crown disappears. Also watch out for the Giant Spider at the bottom of the mountain, who will spin you up in a cocoon and then have you for its dinner.
