Favorite Character:  Princess Leia

 

*************************************************************

 

Hoth Derby – For your Atari Video Computer System

 

The Rebel Alliance has conquered Hoth – The Ice Planet!  Come join the celebration as the fun and games commence.  Mount an AT-AT Walker (All Terrain Armored Transport) for the race of the millennium!  The AT-AT Walkers used to plod along across the Ice Planet, but no longer!  These AT-ATs have been upgraded with hyper-drive technology that allow them to sprint across the frozen tundra.  Choose your AT-AT from the corral and head for the track!  

 

For 1 or 2 players.  Use your Atari Joystick plugged firmly into the LEFT CONTROLLER jack for single-player mode. Use a second Atari Joystick plugged firmly into the RIGHT CONTROLLER jack for two-player action.

 

The object of the game is to win the Hoth Derby and receive the Medal of Bravery from Princess Leia.

 

The game takes place on an oval ice track that is a mile in length.  There are four AT-ATs in each race.  In single-player mode, the computer will control the three AT-ATs that will compete against you.  In two-player mode, the computer will control two AT-ATs.  But watch out!  If you slide off the track, your AT-AT will take fire from the droids that surround the track.  This will slow you down, costing you precious time.

 

Controls: Hold the controller with the red button to your upper left towards the television.  Push the joystick up to move forward.  Pull the joystick back to apply the brakes.  Move the joystick left and right to steer.  Use the red button to fire your Ion Cannon

 

Choose an AT-AT that is driven by your favorite Star Wars character.  Each AT-AT has its own characteristics.

 

Luke Skywalker AT-AT:  This AT-AT is well-rounded in its abilities.

Top Speed:       5

Acceleration:    5

Turning:            5

 

Hans Solo AT-AT:  This AT-AT is quick, but hard to control.

Top Speed:       6

Acceleration     7

Turning:            2

 

Chewbacca AT-AT:  This AT-AT takes a while to reach top speed, but can really make up ground on the straightaways.

Top speed:        9

Acceleration:    2

Turning:            4

 

Yoda AT-AT:  This AT-AT is not very fast, but Yoda uses the force to stay on the track through the turns.

Top Speed:       3

Acceleration:    8       

Turning:            9

 

Obstacles:  Avoid the gray patches of ice on the track.  The ice is very thin there and your AT-AT will fall through the ice.  You will lose time while your AT-AT regroups.  Also, occasionally, one of the droids that surround the track will wander into your path.  Steering to avoid them is your best bet.  You can also fire your ion cannon to destroy the droid.  But the kickback from your ion cannon will slow you down.  You ion cannon is not strong enough to destroy other AT-ATs.  But they can block your shot when you are trying to hit a droid, so be careful.

Levels:

Teddy Bear Level – Track is not very slick and there are no obstacles on the track.

Alderaan Level – Track is slicker and droids begin wandering onto the track                 

Dagobah Level – Track is slicker still, droids are more frequent and gray patches appear

Death Star Level – Slickest track, lots of droids and lots of gray patches.

 

Advanced strategies:

·         Keep top speed deep into the turn, then use the brake and fire the ion cannon together to slow down.

·         Use the diagonals on your Atari Joystick for additional control.  Pull down and left to steer and brake at the same time.  Push up and left to accelerate and steer at the same time.

·         For the slower AT-ATs, stay inside on the turns to cover less track.

 

Come celebrate with the Rebels.  Ride on to victory in the Hoth Derby!

Significant - yet still pathetic - improvement. I couldn't hit the broad side of a womp rat with a rocket launcher.

I'm a Jabba the Hutt fan, so my Atari Game would be "Star Wars: ROTJ Jabba's Palace"

 

Battle of Wits: a simon says type game where you have to repeat back the pattern, when you inevitably fail, you fall through the trap door to the rancor 

 

Rancor Stage: Evade the chasing Rancor, while throwing rocks to try and drop the gate down on top of it. (watch out for little alien rats and spiders too)

 

Sail barge: swing from deck to deck over the saarlac pit, lightsabering the enemies into it, while dodging their lasers

Death Star Battle:39,160

This was my very first attempt at the game, I was pretty encouraged, but subsequent attempts have not gone nearly as well...

:(

Still, waay better than I expected, was kinda afraid of this one.

Ooh, I thoroughly enjoyed this game.  I would wish for better controls and probably no diagonal bombing runs from those ties, but other than than pretty good.

Favorite Star Wars Character:  Wedge Antilles.  Granted, this has a lot to do with the excellent X-wing series of books which flesh out his character more.  It is awesome.  Some would say even legendary now.

Here is my game: Star Wars Trench Run.

 

You play as either Wedge or Biggs (could also see this as a two player game) protecting Luke's xwing.  Below the three fighters are three Ties.  They fire up at all the rebel fighters.  You must avoid their fire and protect Luke's fighter by crashing into any fire that targets him.  I am thinking this needs to be paddle controls for precision.  Each fighter can take 10 hits but as time passes, their shields will repair.  From above, from time to time turrets will fire at Biggs and Wedge.  If you press your button, you pull out of the trench run and if you have kept Luke alive long enough, he will blow up the death star.
