* CriticalBacklash
* {{Misblamed}}: For the video game crash of 1982 and subsequent closing of Atari Inc. While certainly a contributing factor, it was not ''the'' reason. It had more to do with a bloated market of [[TheyJustDidntCare far more hackneyed games]] licensed from [[MoneyDearBoy every conceivable copyrighted property]].

CriticalBacklash: While claimed to be one of the worst, if not '''the''' worst, Atari video games, the few who've actually played it have determined that while not without its flaws, the game isn't really that bad.

* SoOkayItsAverage: Ironically, the game seems to have undergone some sort of inverse HypeBacklash in recent years, with people questioning if the infamous "Worst Game Ever" reputation really holds up, with quite a few younger critics pointing out that while the game might not be "stellar", it is just as hard to declare it truly "awful", as it is actually functional enough to play from start to finish without any major glitches. Same critics also point out that while the gameplay might admittedly be a bit confusing and abstract without having the manual to consult, it is, once the player actually knows what to do, just sort of tedious and boring rather than infuriatingly bad.

* VindicatedByHistory: In recent times, there are a number of people who feel that, considering the pathetically-tiny development time, it's not that bad once you know what you're doing. Hell, [[https://youtu.be/WUsQmYRfynw?t=5m34s this sums up the Angry Video Game Nerd's final opinion on it]].

* KillerApp: ''Inverted''. The poor reception of this game, along with others, served to turn people away from the Atari 2600 as well as all other video game consoles for a few years.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Elliot's family has an Atari 2600 on top of their TV in several shots, and it's implied the kids play Atari games. VideoGame/ETTheExtraTerrestrial was one of the games responsible for TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 and put a severe early dent in the ''E.T.'' name.

* MagnumOpus: Beloved enough to be considered as a candidate (one of many) for Steven Spielberg. Spielberg himself has said it's one of his proudest achievements, citing it as being the film he'd most like his kids to watch.
