DescriptionAdventures of TRON
is based on the motion picture TRON
from Walt Disney Productions.
The game environment consists of 4 floors, each with flying "bits" as well as enemy MCP attackers. The objective of the game is to control TRON (you) in a maze of platforms and elevators while trying to intercept the flying bits (intercepting bits on higher floors are awarded higher points).
Dodge enemy MCP attackers by jumping, using elevators and hitching a ride on the Silver Sailor. Capturing all 7 "bits" will take you to the next level, with added speed and difficulty.
You have a total of 4 lives in play. Make each one count!

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
Originally, this game was going to be an Atari 2600 version of the Intellivision game TRON: Maze-A-Tron
but by the time the game was finished, it was so different that Matel decided to release it under a new name. Matel was then going to release Adventures of Tron
for Intellivision but changed their minds and never released the Intellivision version.
Adventures of Tron was sold through INTV after Matel shut down Matel Electronics.
Hold down the Select button when turning the power on the Atari 2600. On the title screen, the words "By Hal Finney G. Hightower" (Programmer) appear under the word "TRON."
The Telegames re-release's name was changed because the Disney license had expired. The title screen was also removed.
Matel also sold Adventures of Tron
and the Atari 2600 version of Tron: Deadly Disks
in one package along with a special blue Tron joystick. If you bought both games separately, you could send in the proofs of purchase and get the joystick free.Information also contributed by
