LIGHTCYCLES for Atari 8-Bit Computers

A simple video game for two players, written by Michael Current in 1985...

...and published on cartridge by Video 61 in 2005.


Inspired by the 1982 TRON coin-operated video game by Bally-Midway Mfg. Co., itself based on the 1982 movie TRON by Walt Disney Productions.

The gameplay is known generically as Snake, and originated as the coin-operated game Blockade by Gremlin in 1976.
