Cloak and Dagger - a cool dual stick video game created by Atari back in 1984. It is closely tied into a movie with the same name:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087065/
(Cloak & Dagger is a 1984 film directed by Richard Franklin starring Henry Thomas, Dabney Coleman and Michael Murphy. It is a remake of the 1949 film The Window. It was originally released in a double feature with The Last Starfighter on July 13, 1984 and then released separately on August 10, 1984.)

It was supposed to be released on the Atari 5200 but due to the video game crash that never happened. A cool bit of information about this game can be found over at AtariHQ:

I had always heard they where

I had always heard they where doing the movie and where to use Donkey Kong as the game and when they found out the movie was being made they (atari) approached them to change it. I know i wanted it so bad for my 5200..

I loved the movie as a kid. Just the right amount of scary to ignite the imagination.
