From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Revenge of the Beefsteak Tomatoes is a video game for the Atari 2600 written by John Russell, and published by Fox Video Games, Inc. in 1983. Upon its release in 1983, the game cost roughly $30. The back of the box reads 'Perhaps it was a form of protest against bottled Ketchup, or maybe they were provoked by acid rain.' However they came into awareness, tomatoes have become killers that cannot be destroyed by mankind's weapons. The tomatoes can only be trapped by building a brick wall. It is believed that title and the concept of this game are inspired by the cult movie Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.
   The tomatoes fire missiles at the player who controls the 'tomato sprayer', which moves around the screen. By dodging the missiles, the player aims to shoot down bricks that move along the top of the screen. After successfully hitting the bricks, the player is able to build walls, which upon sealing will destroy the tomatoes and the tomato plants. Upon building the third wall, the level is completed and the player receives bonus points.
   Points are awarded for destroying tomatoes and building walls and range from 5 to 3000. There are eight levels of increasing difficulty, where several types of tomatoes are introduced incrementally as well as growing in size. There are also four separate types of user selected difficulty options that include changing the speed of the tomatoes and the number of sprayers available.
