I love this game!! This is one of the best games ever for the 2600. I've got an emulator which I highly recommend (Stella 3.1.2 is the current version) to play this on. Boy, things get difficult once you reach 70,000, but once you reach 150,000, watch out!! The swirls begin homing in on you, and they get unpredictable!! I managed to turn the score over, and boy, it wasn't easy!! Very enjoyable, and it keeps you on your toes!!

This was the first game that I really got sunk into. I mean, sunk like the Titanic. I actually played this game so much that I could simply dash over, grab a bite of shield to charge up, and then kill the boss as soon as a shot was clear on each and every level.

Was sold with a Yars' Revenge comic book.
Hit a swirl in mid-air with the cannon. Then find the 'Ghost of Yar' (a black, vertical line that appears behind the explosion graphics) and position yourself on the lower third of it. If done right, when the explosion ends, the game will stop and the letters HSWWSH (for Howard Scott Warshaw) will appear.
This was the fist Atari 2600 game to display programming code on the screen. The Neutral Zone is comprised of actual game code, which is laid out vertically, and counter-scrolling over itself (along with some X-Y and random color processing).
