Friday Flyers: Tron

It only made sense to follow the great Tron podcast with the also impressive arcade flyer for the machine of the same name. As most of you readers will probably agree, Bally-Midway really knocked it out of the park with this game when it was released in 1982. Thanks to the Xbox Live arcade you can play it right now if you want! A mighty thanks as always to the Arcade Flyer Archive for the amazing photos of the flyer below!

    Truly an impressive game. I’m just sorry that no home version has ever been able to recapture the excellent joystick /paddle knob combo that is really needed to play the game well. Great fliers!

  2. Thanks, Vin! On the Tron offerings for Xbox Live arcade at least they let you fiddle with the control scheme, how quick your arm/turret turns, etc. I agree it is not the same but it does help a little. :)
