|Attack of the Mutant Camels|
Atari 800 version of AOTMC
The player controls a small jet plane and has the task of killing giant yellow camels before they reach the home base. Doing so requires several dozens of shots. The camels retaliate by shooting fireballs from their mouth.
Each camel required several shots to destroy; if a camel reached the base, the game was over. Once all camels on a level had been killed, the player had to survive a "hyperspace" sequence which required avoiding high-speed missiles. Upon successful completion, the next level presented a new wave of camels, with slightly harder gameplay.
A sequel exists, named Revenge of the Mutant Camels.
Confusingly, a very different game from Jeff Minter's Gridrunner series was also released in the US under the name Attack of the Mutant Camels.
In 2011, Attack of the Mutant Camels was chosen to be featured in the Smithsonian's "The Art of Video Games" exhibit.
