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 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 Solar Sailor. Capturing all 7 bits will take the player to the next level, with added speed and difficulty. The player has a total of 4 lives in play.

DevelopmentOriginally, 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.
DistributionAdventures of Tron was sold through INTV after Matel shut down Matel Electronics.
Hidden creditsHold 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."
Name changeThe Telegames re-release's name was changed because the Disney license had expired. The title screen was also removed.
Special EditionMatel 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.
