The game is called “Steeplechase” and can accommodate up to six players who compete against each other by choosing a horse each, while the computer controls the seventh horse at the bottom. The game begins with all horses galloping and players must jump over obstacles in their respective lanes by pressing their colored buttons.
The objective of the game is to successfully jump over all obstacles and become the fastest horse, thus winning the race. The game features hurdles and other obstacles, which increase in number and difficulty as the game progresses. Players must time their jumps carefully to avoid knocking down any obstacles, which slows them down.
This was one of the three games Atari produced exclusively for Sears.
