oops penalize me. Game started on a apple II in 1981 and the atari adaptation probably didn't come out until 1983, says magazine article here. Maybe there shouldn't be 1981 on game screen then, being that it wasn't even known by the name "Sky blazer" back then.

What makes it different is the ship's movement - you can't just instantly move up/down/left/right rather you have to take into account the ship's momentum.
This adds a totally different gameplay as it moves away from basic arcade towards simulation and while much harder it does keep you going back for another try.

When Tony Suzuki set to work at programming an Atari version of his Apple II classic, Star Blazer, not only was a new Star- not born, the company actually renamed the program, Sky Blazer.
