Excellent game and an all time favorite, catchy music, nice sound, smooth 3D scrolling. You just didn't see games made this well very often.

Brilliant game with awesome graphics, music, sound fx and gameplay. Absolutely addictive when played with 2 players. Shows off the capabilities of the Atari 800.

All of these early lucasfilm games totally rocked! I spent untold hours playing ballblaster koronis rift, eidolon and behind jaggi lines. Oh happy days...

If you manage to win within the 1 minute limit, you will see authors' initials written at the very right ene of the playfield.

When on title screen (that with the game title and copyright text fading in/out at the center) type the word "AUTHOR" (you have to start typing after the center text fades in, and finish befor it starts fade out, so do it quickly). Then you will see the credits fade in.
