Star Wars the Arcade Game for ColecoVision played on my CollectorVision Phoenix. And a Micro Machines Rancor. Excellent game for ColecoVision, in the arcade, and the Arcade 1Up machine. We need more games with vector graphics. May the 4th be with you, always.

But don't you think the flashing effects are over the top? Especially if you're playing it at night. It's not a game for people with epilepsy!

I do agree that it would be nice to see another vector graphic game. Maybe something like Battlezone? Not that I'm pretending it would be easy to do, but there you go :)

Too obvious. What about Red Baron?

Loved Red Baron.  Played that one a lot at the local bowling alley growing up.  Shame it never really made the home market.   Vectrex would have been great!

You should watch a playthrough of someone playing the unreleased version of The Last Starfighter on the 5200. I never realized how much flashing that game has until I recorded a play through run and explanation of the game like a year or 2 back.

I'd like to see this game hacked to include voice. No one seems to be interested in hacks of the original games.

Cool Video. That game needs to use the Roller Controller. Game mod idea for you Pixelboy.😁

The roller controller would be a great idea for this game! There are times when I'm trying to line up my shot but I can't hit the target because I'm a bit too high or low.

Have you tried using the Roller Controller in Joystick mode? It works great with Centipede and may be what you are looking for re better control in Star Wars.

I have not tried the Roller Controller in a long time. I will have to take it out of the box and use it with Star Wars and try other random games. I'd like to see how it works with Mr. Do or Burgertime. Thanks!

I do not see it playing very well with Mr. Do or Burgertime. In fact, I know it will be painful because you will constantly have to be rolling the trackball and precise changes in direction will be a nightmare.

 

Games that play well with it include Centipede, War Games, Omega Race and WarRoom... as far as games that were not specifically made for use with it (Slither and Victory).
