According to the wikipedia for this game Amidar is a video game developed by Konami and released in arcades in 1981 by Stern. The format is similar to that of Pac-Man: the player moves around a fixed rectilinear lattice, attempting to visit each location on the board while avoiding the enemies. When each spot has been visited, the player moves to the next level. And that’s pretty much all we can say so far about this Arcade conversion, as it’s still early days for the game and we don’t know if the game will be released any time soon.
