Promotion for Tron!
July 9th 1982 was also the release date of Tron! Oh man, I loved that movie! I have it on VHS, Laserdisc and CED (Select-a-vision discs).
Even better than the movie was the full size arcade game “The Discs of Tron”. I played a machine just like this one for years at the arcade in the Sherman Oaks Galleria, I worked at the Galleria from 1982 to 1984. I must have spent hundreds of dollars on this game (and Dragon Slayer!) I got pretty good at Tron, but there were always a few people better than me!
A couple screen shots of the game. You better watch you step or Sark and the MCP will de-res you then its “game over”!
