The Forgotten TV Debut Of The Original Star Wars Game

There have been, to date, one jillion Star Wars video games. (That figure is approximate). But in many ways, there was only one — the 1983 Atari game Star Wars. I played this game when I was barely old enough to understand the films, much less do well at any of the levels, particularly that difficult trench-run.

The game made its debut during "The Video Game Challenge", a short-lived television program from the 80s.

Just like the force, this Star Wars game will be with you... always. Actually, considering how regularly I still think about that game... that's true!


    Someone on ebay in my city had one of these for two grand, I was tempted.

    love how its flying backwards away from the deathstar as it blows up
