TRIVIA

Released in November 1982.

Advertised as 'The Game of Firsts' :

- The first game on single play mode that allows the player the option of attack or defend.
- The first game that is back to back and only slightly larger than a single game. The back to back set up allows for true 2-Player interaction and also allows for 2 single action games to take place independently.
