Once you go up an elevator to the next floor you have to cross the center beam to make the elevators work again. You can drop a level by pressing down to avoid enemies. One of the items is replaced by an arrow, and if hit right, will carry you across the screen to avoid enemies. A few stages into the game, tanks will start coming out and firing often making the challenge level high. This is a worthy entry to the 2600 library and worth owning for gameplay.
Game Freaks 365 (2002)
Aesthetically, this game is nothing to get excited over. The graphics and the sound are executed fairly well for 1982, but they are not quite as good as they potentially could have been. Overall, I would say that this title is a fair diversion for the Atari 2600 fan, and is worth getting, especially if you are a fan of this Tron guy, whoever he is. Just don't expect this game to last forever like some.
Atari HQ (2000)
Adventures of Tron offers nothing new, and the game quickly becomes an exercise in frustration. The relentless attack from the Tanks will quickly overwhelm all but the most dexterous game player. Considering that Tron was one of the hottest licenses in the early 1980s, one can't help but feel that Mattel dropped the ball by offering a run-of-the-mill climbing and jumping game.
All Game Guide (1998)
Adventures of Tron is a game definitely worth skipping even if you consider yourself a Tron fanatic. It is boring, crude and poorly constructed, and manages to incorporate nothing from the film or arcade titles that would have made it fun and interesting.
The Video Game Critic (Jun 14, 2003)
In the final analysis, Adventures of Tron gets lost in the noise with so many similar 2600 titles.
Woodgrain Wonderland (Sep 19, 2016)
Tron was a film that was ahead of its time and one that seemed to go over the heads of the largely computer-illiterate audience of 1982. Unfortunately, this tie-in game is very much a part of its time; specifically the era’s avalanche of substandard games designed to siphon hard-earned allowances. For a game based on a movie with so much fodder for great video game ideas, Adventures of Tron is very weak indeed. It’s a cat and mouse platformer where you jump and use elevators to avoid a variety of robotic baddies while collecting some sort of flying mcguffin. It’s fairly challenging but the challenge doesn’t lead to anywhere resembling fun. Mattel could – and often did – do better.
