Atari 5200 Super System


EASTER EGG: According to programmer Eric Manghise, there is a hidden list of names in the game. ERIC MANGHISE MARILYN CHURCHILL appears on the title screen (picture #1) if you press 1, 9, 5, 1, 0, 6, and then any other key. {Frantisek Houra}

2 different prototype versions exist.  The earlier version, dated 5-18-83 (pictures #1 and #2) is a rough demo of level 1 from the more complete version, dated 11-16-83 (pictures #3 and #4).

The ground-based enemy found in the first level of the later version (picture #5) is the exact same top invader found in the first 2 waves of the 5200 version of Space Invaders, which was based on one of the invaders found in the VCS version (picture #6)!
