Forcing Old Atari Game Boxes To Tell The Truth

Rarely was there ever a greater discrepancy between actual graphics and box art design than during the Atari era. You'd get these amazingly evocative, painted box arts for a game about...blocks. Not cool.

Mighty God King seeks to rectify this by taking the box art and changing the game's name to better reflect what's being shown.

They're oldies, sure, but it's January 3 and this is a history post. So enjoy.
