Great Wall Street Fortune Hunt!

Yesterday, Paul mentioned the exciting Tooth Invaders game. Today, I share with you a game for the Odyssey^2 console that had almost the same amount of excitement: Great Wall Street Fortune Hunt!. While I played a lot of Odyssey games in my day, I never played this one, because really, it wasn’t designed to appeal to an 8-year-old. What is moderately interesting is that they used real corporations like IBM, McDonald’s, and Monsanto (blech) in their game. If the idea of a stock market game played on a really old console sounds the least bit interesting to you, make sure you check out that second link for way more information than you can shake a (joy)stick at. HAR.

Never heard of that game before. My brother had the Odyssey2 as well. I spent many an hour playing Pick Ax Pete!

Pick Axe Pete ruled. I remember there was one spot near the portal where you could get him stuck jumping over and over and over and over…

What is this then?
