Overview

Hunt & Score is a card-matching game first released for the Atari 2600 in 1978. Similar to the classic board game Memory, the goal of the game is to earn points by locating matching cards. The game screen consists of a grid of cards that are face down; on each turn, players select two cards which are then flipped over to reveal the picture or symbol. If the pictures match, points are earned and the cards are removed; if they don't match, the cards are flipped back upside down after a short interval. Once all of the cards have been matched, the game is over and the player with the most points wins. As was common for Atari 2600 games of the era, a number of variations are included which allow players to select either 16 or 30 cards in the grid, optional wild cards, and the ability to handicap one of the players.
