Atari 5200 Catalog 1982:
    You are invited to the beautiful, rainbow shrouded planet of Striae to participate in an interplanetary galactic games event. Your challenge is to heft a metallic sphere and hurl it through a wall of glowing iridium bricks. Shatter the bricks with your first successful shot, and you'll discover another wall behind the first, then another and another. Try to keep the sphere in play to break through row after row of seemingly impenetrable colored layers.
