Mole Attack is a video game version of the mechanical arcade game Whac-A-Mole. Commodore published it in 1981 for the Commodore VIC-20 and the PC-8001.

Gameplay[change | change source]

Moles appear from 9 holes. The player has 60 seconds to hit as many moles as they can with a hammer.[1] A joystick or the keyboard can be used.[1]

Reception[change | change source]

In a 1983 review for Electronic Games, Charlene Komar said: "Mole Attack will probably be a favorite among younger arcaders. Even though the eye-catching graphics combine well with the time-limit excitement, adults will probably find the game too simple and repetitive to get too many repeat plays."[1]
