I think that most of Activisions titles were pretty good on 8bit Atari. The first game i ever bought from Activision was Decathlon. At the same time i bought Boulder Dash (first star) and Aztec Challenge (cosmi).

Aztec Challenge was all about jumping, but never the less fun.

Actually "Master of the Lamps" on A8 was... ugly. Because all music in this game was programmed by Russell Lieblich (rip) special for SID-chip. In A8 adaptation... music is too cheesy and performed with primitive skills. I'm sure - Russell used almost all potential of SID-filters. It's was soooooo incredible and fantastic in those days (1985!). Even today version of "Master of the Lamps" from C-64 sound great. Look at this:
