Released in December 1983.
A Cloak & Dagger unit appears in the 1984 movie 'Cloak and Dagger'.
This game was in development independently from the movie of the same name under the title "Agent X
". When the game was about 70% completed and the movie was about 40% done, the movie producers and editors came to Atari to see if Atari had a game they could film as backdrop to the movie scenes which needed a 'Cloak & Dagger like spy game'. Atari agreed to change the name of its game to 'Cloak & Dagger' and they put a couple of tid-bits into their script which referred to 'Agent X' (Dabny Colman's character). The game actually arrived on the scene about 2 months before the movie was released. It was tested under the name 'Agent X' in it's initial field test (about 5 months before the movie was released), but was never produced as anything but 'Cloak & Dagger'. There were about 5000 games produced which made it into the market place.
John McAllister holds the official record for this game with 1,497,744 points on April 1, 2009.
