|TRON Deadly Discs|
|Developer||APh Technological Consulting|
|Game System||Atari 2600, Intellivision|
|Number of Players||1|
Not to be confused with the Discs of TRON arcade game.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Players play as Tron, who must fight through endless waves of Warrior Programs sent by the Master Control Program. In the Atari 2600 version, the joystick controls both Tron's movement and aiming of his Identity Disc, while the action button fires the disc and also retrieves it. In the Intellivision version, the control disc controls Tron's movement while the keypad buttons control the aiming of his disc and its retrieval, plus the player can go into blocking mode to prevent the enemy discs from striking him. The player must strike down as many Warrior Programs as he can without letting them hit him a few times, which will cause him to "de-rez", meaning the game is over. As the Warrior Programs enter the arena, they leave behind doors that Tron can keep open and use as transports to go from one side of the arena to the other. In the Intellivision version, a Recognizer will come into the arena and seal off all the open doors. The player must aim for the eye of the Recognizer in order to disable it.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Ironically, in the Intellivision version, Tron appears red, which is the normal color for Sark and the Warrior Elite programs working for the MCP, while the enemy Warrior Programs mostly appear in shades of blue, which is the normal color for the User Believer programs.
- The Atari 2600 version of this game as well as Adventures Of TRON were released in a package that included a special joystick controller that resembled the one from the TRON arcade game. It was also re-released by Telegames USA as simply Deadly Discs, without the TRON reference.
- The game was re-released as Deadly Discs on the Intellivision 10 2nd Edition plug-and-play system.
- A version of this game called Deadly Dogs was included as an Easter Egg in the Intellivision version of Namco's arcade game Dig Dug, with the warriors on the screen replaced by hot dogs from Data East's Burger Time. To access this game, press keys 4 and 7 on both keypad controllers simultaneously and press the reset button on the Intellivision console.
