Today in History: October 16th, 1992- Atomic Runner Treads on Sega Genesis

Triverse writes, "Atomic Runner, a title that many probably don’t remember, was probably the birth of endless running games. Before the complaints start rolling in, think about this- Atomic Runner is all forced scrolling, though the player has control over Chelnov (the character in the game). While not “endless” Atomic Runner does hold similarities to newer titles just like Pitfall is similar to Super Mario Bros." (Retro)
