"You are CHUCK NORRIS..."
Once upon a time, back on the Atari 2600, Chuck Norris had to rescue a famous leader that was being held hostage. To an ancient monastery was Chuck asked to travel to and along the way he had to deal with the entire population of China...with his fists and feet.
This was one of those games that you could get at Kay*Bee toy stores when it first opened for about two dollars. The double-ender cartridge was surely an interesting idea, two games for the price of one, want the other game you just flip the cartridge around and plug it in then play. It didn't seem to catch on though as I believe there were only two sets of game ever made...at least that I can remember.
The Chuck Norris game was actually not that bad and it had some interesting game mechanics for its time. However, this product showed up at the end of the death throes of the Atari 2600 and when you could pick up Metroid at the same time it is easy to understand why most people passed it up...even for two dollars.
