One of the best arcade translations done for this system. It was released it in January 1983 (yes, *after* Christmas), making it the sleeper hit of the year. The programmer cleverly hid his name in the manual.

One of the enemy objects is called a 'Floating Payne'. It was named as such by programmer Dave Payne.

This is the first Atari 2600 game to have a continue option.

The way to activate the automatic fire of your spaceship is different in the PAL version.
