1981’s Laser Blast by the legendary David Crane (Pitfall, Ghostbusters) for the Atari 2600 didn’t seem to get as much love as titles like Kaboom!, River Raid, or Megamania…at least not in my neck of the woods. I’m not really sure why because at least my Family always got a kick out of taking turns piloting a space ship blasting enemy bases on the ground below.

As I’ve mentioned before on the site I sadly never obtained one of those prized Activision patches for my very own and in the case of Laser Blast I wasn’t even worthy enough to be honored by becoming part of the Activision Federation of Laser Blasters much less scoring the 1 million points to be inducted into the Laser Hall of Fame!
But at the time of the Fall 1981 Activisions newsletter who was featured as some of the best?
