Originally released on the Atari 400, Star Raiders for the VCS is a space combat game played from a first-person perspective. You'll engage an enemy known as the Krylons across different sectors of the galaxy. Use the included Video Touch Pad to access the galactic map and plot your course, noting the position of enemy ships, before warping to the region. While in battle, you can raise your shields to defend against oncoming attacks and fire twin photon torpedoes at the enemy. Each action you initiate, from entering hyperspace to firing weapons, depletes your ship's energy reserves, which can only be replenished by visiting a starbase in between battles. Your objectives in Star Raiders are to defend this starbase and to eliminate all of the Krylons on the map, at which point the game will continue with a new, more challenging mission. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
