Atari Box Art - Star Ship
One of the original 1977 launch games for the Atari 2600 VCS, Star Ship quickly faded and disappeared, but I always thought it was a pretty good game. The lunar lander game, especially, kept me entertained as a kid. Of course, it can't hold a candle to the Atari arcade game, Starship 1, which features spectacular scaling effects. That's probably why this title was pushed aside. Oh, well. At least the illustration is fantastic, and you can't take that away. Why can't games today look like this?
