Splat! is similar in many ways to Atari’s Food Fight, albeit as a two-player, two-joystick setup akin to Robotron: 2084. Where Food Fight goes cute, however, Splat! goes a bit dark — being hit by flying food causes your head to pop off and roll around the playfield, requiring you to retrieve it to continue fighting (how you find your head without a head is never really revealed). Another odd aspect is the game’s “Nerd Hunt” levels, which have you pelting hapless dorks with food (as a lot of the people hanging out in arcades in the 80s were nerds, it’s not clear who exactly this game was aimed at). Though it was never widely released, Splat! is a fast-paced and fun two-player messfest, so if you missed it in arcades, now's your chance to throw a few tomatoes.
