Yar's Revenge v1.0 [mirror]

As a child, Mike Mika spent countless hours playing Yar's Revenge on the Atari 2600, but it wasn't until a few years ago that he was able to find another copy of the game including a comic book. The addiction began, and after finding the will, Mike found a way. Friday the 13th was a lucky day for the emulation scene when Yar's Revenge hit the scene!

Not only a great Gameboy game to play on Virtual Gameboy, or even a real Gameboy, but Yar's Revenge also was the first homemade Gameboy game publically distributed that can actually compete with commercial ROMs!!! With spectacular cinema graphics to enhance the simple gameplay, Yar's Revenge has its eye candy, but it also is a very intense game. While upon first look, Yar's Revenge might make absolutely no sense, after reading documentation, everything will fall into place! Check out the strategy guide below and the pics, then try the game yourself!
