STEEPLE CHASE / Video Gems / Atari 2600

What, Video Gems made something halfway entertaining and innovative? Steeple Chase has you racing a horse over some obstacle field, I guess this is some sport rich people are into. Anyway, you use two screens simultaneously - the upper screen lets you go around obstacles and line up with the ones you want to jump, the lower screen shows the obstacle you're currently lined up with and has to be eyeballed to time the jump right. While the game does get repetitive kind of fast I enjoyed how fast you can get the horse going and the Superman-esque leaps he takes while at top speed. It's actually an OK little reflex tester as long as you don't expect too much.
