It came out before the VIC or 64, it ewas a vectorgraphic game (like asteroids) and the sounds were very clear, especially that *crack* sound when your ship got hit. Found a link, 1981, http://www.greatgamedatabase.com/GGDB/Details.asp?VID=1976&Cat=TechRoot.KB.NP I had thought the VIC-20 was a way better version but the 64 version I was comparing it to is from that Ultimax collection, and I believe there is a difference between the 64 cart and the Ultimax. Though in general I appreciated the paddle option on the game as the original arcade used a spinner for directional control.
