This article is about the console game. For other meanings, see Halloween (disambiguation).
In 1983, Wizard Video released a Halloween game for the Atari VCS (later called the "Atari 2600") console. In the game, the player was a babysitter who had to protect children from Michael Myers, who had managed to get inside the house. Although called "Halloween" and featuring the film's theatrical poster as its cover art, the game itself never refers to any characters, including the killer, by their names in the film.
You scored points by finding the child and taking him to the very last room on either side of the house. At some points in the game, Michael Myers would appear and try to kill you. He could also kill the child, which caused the loss of one life (represented by Jack-O-Lanterns at the top of the screen). Sometimes, a weapon appeared which could be used against Michael to send him running away from you for a brief time.

- Michael Myers (as "homicidal maniac")
