Atari 400/800/XL/XE/XEGS systems


· 3 prototype versions exist! The earliest version has been found with the title simply as Legacy (picture #1) – the game was originally referred to as The Legacy.  Another version had a title screen with “Final Legacy” in black letters instead of white (picture #2).  A 3rd version doesn’t have a title screen or show the fuel information (picture #3), plus the map screen says “Navigation” at the bottom (picture #4).

· 2 release versions exist.  The original release is exactly the same as the 5200 version (left column).  A later release (right column) has a number of small differences compared to the original – the most notable of which (besides the colors) is the later version uses icons on many of the different screens, and particularly on the navigation bar.  It also offers a left or right-handed joystick option, but it doesn’t have the “Sea to Land E-Beam” text on the sea-to-land screen, and there’s less text on the sea-to-air screen.

· The theme music was reused from the unreleased Superman III game.
