Warlords (Atari 2600, 1981)
About this product
|Based on Atari's 1980 coin-op game, Warlords for the Atari VCS has up to four players battling each other for the right to rule a kingdom. Each warlord is surrounded by a breakable wall or castle, viewed from a top-down perspective in a corner of the screen. Your goal is to defeat the three rival warlords by aiming and defending against a ricocheting ball. A small shield positioned in front of your castle is used to either block or grab the ball, depending on the game selected (23 variations are available). If a computer or human opponent fails to block the ball, a piece of the castle will break apart. If the ball makes its way through the wall and touches a warlord, the warlord is defeated. Play resumes until only one person remains active on the screen.|
|Number of Players||1-4|

A blast for hours!
Fun Game! Great for parties. This is a 4 player game where paddles are used. If you have two sets of paddles, then everyone can play! This is similar to pong but more colorful and difficult. You protect your base and try to knock the ball to your opponents base and destroy it. Each time your opponent misses the ball their base breaks up a bit. If you can break in you defeat them. This is more like a 4 player elimination game. This game is a hit anytime I throw a vintage video game party at my house.
