SwordQuest: WaterWorld is an action-adventure game released for the Atari 2600, and it was part of the SwordQuest series. The gameplay involves navigating through rooms, collecting items, completing action stages to reveal more items, and discovering sets of numbers when the right items are placed in the right rooms.
These sets of numbers (e.g., 8-4) correspond to a page number and a panel number in the comic book that was included with the game. Players were supposed to find a hidden word within the specified panel on the indicated page. Once all the correct words were discovered, players could submit them to Atari as part of the SwordQuest contest, which offered valuable prizes to the winners.
SwordQuest: WaterWorld not only provided an engaging gaming experience but also encouraged players to interact with the comic book and participate in a real-world contest, adding an extra layer of excitement and challenge to the game.
