Man, being a kid was great, right? I mean, there was school and you never could leave the house after dark, but when your chores and homework were done, there was always those fleeting fifteen minutes with the ol’ game console in dad’s den, then off to bed for school the next day! (Actually, being a kid stunk.)
With Swordquest, the legendary game from Ye Olde Atari days, Dynamite’s in the nostalgia-baiting business. And for you young types, if you like 4 Kids Walk Into a Bank — and we know you do! — this ought to get you where you need to go. So don your well-worn nostalgia cap and take a gander at Swordquest #1, courtesy of Dynamite!

From Dynamite: In 1984, Peter Case was on his way to being crowned champion of SwordQuest, set to win the last of four contests and lay claim to a golden sword worth over $50,000! But when the game was discontinued, Peter found himself without a game to finish. Now, over thirty years later, Peter’s stuck in the game of life, and he’s losing fast. But when he learns that all the prizes meant for the SwordQuest contest of his youth are on display in the World Arcade Museum, he finds an unknown determination that sees him put together a team of like-minded losers for the ultimate heist job — a real-life sword quest! The red-hot team of Chris Sims, Chad Bowers, and Ghostwriter X (Down Set Fight) have a new game — and the stakes have never been higher!
