Released after 31 years...comes Star Raiders 2
« on: December 11, 2015, 08:08:36 AM »
for many the sequel to a Star Raiders was a mixed bag, as its sequel was originally another game altogether based on a classic cult movie "The Last Starfighter" but when the film failed to ignite the box office Atari decided to drop the title of The Last Star Fighter which is a exceptional Atari game in its own right, released this as Star Raiders II, but a designer from the Coin Op division was and had actually produce a direct sequel to the original game, why it never seen the light of day is anyone guess...until now.

That's cool.  I wonder if this can be converted for play on the 5200.
Going to the final frontier, gaming...
