    Default Spider Invasion for the Atari PC, TI, and Commodore

    I picked up this cassette game this weekend. It is complete in the box with manual, cassette, and plastic tray. It's in great condition. I couldn't find it on the DP Online Rarity Guide but it is listed on AtariMania as a rarity 8. It is marketed as "tri-compatible" and has a version of the program for the VIC-20, TI99 4/A and the Atari 8bit line. I borrowed the pic from The Personal Computer Museum since my camera is dead.

    Anyone have any idea on the value?

    It won't be in the rarity guide here because that only deals with cartridges, not tapes. I paid $5 for my sealed copy a number of years back, and I can't presume it's changed much in value since.

    Ahh that makes sense. Thanks for the info. I was hoping it would be worth more since I couldn't find much info on it.

    I remember that one, I have a copy purchased back in the day when Cosmi actually cared about the Texas Instruments scene. It's been so long since I've played it that I can't remember what the TI version looks like (Cosmi sometimes did wildly different versions of a game for each system on those multi-computer releases).

    Yeah. The Vic20 version of Aztec Challenge has nothing to do with the C64 original, for instance. At least Slinky is somewhat similar...

    Thanks for the info guys. Ended up trading it to Sunnyvale 420 for R-Type for the SNES.

    I'd guess around $10-15
