DESCRIPTION

[CONSOLE] Atari 2600 Cart.

Sky Diver © 1979 Atari, Incorporated.


Your initial task is to guide the Sky Diver onto the landing pad. Your ultimate task is to score more points than your opponent. To hit the landing pad and score points you must:
• Release the Sky Diver from the airplane.
• Open the parachute.
• Control the downward drift of the Sky Diver.
• Land squarely on the pad at the bottom of the screen.

There are five two-player games in Sky Diver. You and your opponent have nine jumps each in which to score points.

Games 1 and 2 are identical with one exception. In Game 2 the width of each landing pad is smaller, making it more difficult to score points. The landing pads are placed in different spots for each jump.

In Games 3 and 4 the landing pads move back and forth. There is no wind factor. The landing pads in Game 4 are smaller in width.

Play 'chicken' in Game 5 with your opponent. There's only one landing pad in the middle of the screen. The first player to land squarely on the pad scores points; the other player receives no points for that jump.
