Robotron: 2084 Vid Kidz / Atarisoft 1983

Release Date: 1983 You are a mutant human, who by some freak of nature has the ability to shoot energy pulses from his body in eight different directions. Your job is simple: save humanity from their own creation - the ROBOTRONS! The gameplay is pretty unique for the time. The arcade game popularized the twin joystick control scheme, one that had previously been used in Taito's Space Dungeon. You can move and fire in any of eight directions. You get thrown in a room with various evil baddies strewn about, you've got to kill all the robots while at the same time finding some way to grab humans and avoid death. This is one of the better Atarisoft conversions; everything is very faithful to the original, single joystick control is very good.
