Ballblazer, Atari 7800

Lucasfilm Games’ brilliant futuristic sports sim, Ballblazer, was converted to the Atari 7800 in late 1984.

As a ‘no-nonsense’, one-on-one ball game there is little better, in terms of video games, and this Atari 7800 version is one of the fastest and smoothest around.

What makes Ballblazer so good is the speed of the action, and the way you can use subtlety and tactics to your advantage. Just like in regular football…

But this is a futuristic ball game and you’re inside floating ships. Floating ships that snap onto the location of the ball instantly. Meaning that full concentration is required to win games against better players, because the matches are so intense.
