Emulated in MAME ! [Console] Atari 2600 Cartridge
Omega Race © 1983 CBS, Incorporated.
The object of OMEGA RACE is to evade enemy fire and score points by destroying the various types of Omegan Warrior Ships and Photon Mines you'll encounter while speeding around a mysterious cosmic arena.
Photon Mine: 500 points.
Droid Ship: 1,000 points.
Command Ship: 1,500 points.
Death Ship: 2,500 points.
Droid Force Bonus: 5,000 points.
1. Learn to use your Booster-Grop to control your direction as you ricochet off the walls of the arena. Mastering this technique will almost always enable you to maintain a good position for destroying both Command Ships and Death Ships.
2. Use your thrust sparingly to float back and forth or up and down. You'll be able to fire without worrying about navigating.
3. To rack up really high scores, go for the more valuable ships first. Since they're always replaced, you'll be able to get more points for the same quantity of ships destroyed.
