Description

En garde! Attack, feint, block, strike!

This is a one-on-one sword fight for two players only. Press the button to skip in and out and move the joystick to swing the sword and block. Your sword is obviously based on a lightsaber from the way the blade extends and the sound effects.

Trivia

This game was completed for Mattel in 1982 or 1983 but not released. Mattel had created a new rule that all games had to be playable by one player, at least. This game was shown at the Classic Gaming Expo in 1999 and the response was favorable enough that Intellivision Productions sold it at the Classic Gaming Expo in 2000.
