The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
TriviaDefender II is better known as Stargate- after the arcade release, Williams determined that the game's name infringed on an existing trademark (apparently for a board game), and the name was changed.
Despite Williams' assertions, though, the game's name was not changed immediately after the arcade release. The disc reveals that Williams programmers had to go to Atari to reprogram the title screen for the already-finished 2600 version... the problem is, the game was in release *as Stargate* for the 2600 later in the year- the Defender II variant didn't show up in stores until 1988. Unless the 2600 game was programmed and released at the same time as the arcade game, Williams' timeline is faulty.
(After the release of the movie Stargate a few years ago, several related home video and board games were released, without trademark conflict.)
