Another blast from the past: Its StarFire!
When StarFire by Exidy came out in the arcades
it was like a breath of fresh air. It was Star Wars in all but name.
Blasting what looked like Tie Fighters and X wings and yourself sat in a
cockpit it was a fun experience. Now its 2003 and finding a Star
Fire machine is as rare as rocking horse shit. Thanks to Cybergoth (Aka
Manuel Polik) because he has nearly finished his Star-Fire arcade
conversion for the Atari2600. PnP has been a firm believer that this game
would be fantastic and it would work on the 2600 (in fact, it was
mentioned in last years games for xmas special as Manuel was unsure when
it would be released). Anyway, the game is near complete and the next rom
release (The work in progress roms have been released as work was done, a
great way of looking at the design of the game) looks like another
smashing Atari game and one of the best 2600 conversions that I have
played. Its a great idea making new arcade conversions for the old
Atari and it works. Big Time. Like I said the rom has been released
over at Atariage, so go on. have some blasting fun this afternoon.
