Vidtec and US Games were made for the Atari VCS.

Some of them were great while others were a mess.

US Games and Vidtec were a division of Quaker Oats.

But the creators found it extremely difficult to stay afloat.

Their best games were Space Jockey, Commando Raid, and M.A.D. too

But US Games went out of business just one year after beginning in 1982.

They made several good games; not including Word Zapper.

People should've taken that game and thrown it in the crapper.

Another of their crappy games was Sneak 'N Peek.

The fireman on Towering Inferno looked like he was taking a leak.

When they hit the shelves, they didn't start disappearing.

But the $5.50 price tag at Revco made them endearing.

None of their fourteen games became a hit.

Some liked them while others didn't give a shit.
