Lord of the Rings Atari Parker Bros Ad


An add for the unfinished (or maybe not) prototype for Lord of the Rings. It's actually an okay game, and you do kind of feel like you are exploring a vast landscape. Not many games could do that, and even though it's no Ultima: Exodus, it's still worth your time.

Usually I'd just make fun of ads, but this one seems pretty straightforward and informative. I'm not 100% certain, but I believe there were going to be 3 games, but only the first one got made, and maybe was intended to include even more stuff (like a journey through Moria).
