Great game, one of those Atari games that rose above the rest due to its infectious gameplay.
Graphics served well along with sound, the gameplay however shone through.
I thought this game was harder than Star Raiders :( I scored a couple of times Star Commander 1 in Star Raiders however just barely scrape through difficulty level 2 here. Has anyone knocked off difficulty level 3? My tactic for level 2 is head straight to Zylon system and nuke as many cities as possible in the shortest time. However that didn't work well under level 3.
How do I open a .ROM file? I really want to play this great classic game.
Very addictive game. I played this really a lot in my childhood :)

I got an Atari 800XL at XMAS 1984 and when I got a tape recorder eight months later, this game became one of my favourites. The gfx are much better than in Star Raiders, alas there are only three levels (ten levels would have been much nicer)...
I liked the last Starfighter Version better since it was featured(not the 8bit game itself though) in that real cool movie with that title:D

Both the cartridge and disk versions are amazingly only 16ko. Quite an achievement.
Note for Daniel Cadiz: SR2 is easier than the first Star Raiders but it's much more of an action game, less of a simulation (The previous Last Starfighter release is even more of an action game for those who want to try).

Probably it's the best game of starships that I've played in Atari. In comparision with the predecesor game, Star Raiders II it's very much easiest and the graphics are really better than Star Raiders.

An interesting article which points out the differences between Star Raiders II and its true predecessor, The Last Starfighter, can be found at the following address: http://www.atarihq.com/atcomp/lastsr2.html
Liberty Star, Gun Star...Celos IV, Rylos---it's all the same to me...all in all though both games are quite enjoyable to play.
