Yars Revenge on Atari 2600 VCS
This is a short video clip of me playing Yars' Revenge on the Atari 2600 VCS retro video games console.
Coded by Howard Scott Warshaw and released by Atari in 1982, Yars' Revenge is named after Atari CEO Ray Kassar.
Shoot away the shield defending the "Qotile" on the right of the screen, while avoiding its missiles. You can take shelter in the "Neutral Zone"... that speckly area in the middle. From here, the enemy missiles can't kill you, but you can't fire either. You are however still vulnerable to the Qotile's firey swirl attack here.
This and the other retro gaming clips on this site aren't intended as full game reviews, but are simply to give viewers who weren't around when these games were popular, an idea of what video games used to be like.
