Adventures of TRON Atari 2600 Title screen

MISSING COVER

Trivia

Development

Originally, 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 Mattel decided to release it under a new name. Mattel was then going to release Adventures of Tron for Intellivision but changed their minds and never released the Intellivision version.

Distribution

Adventures of Tron was sold through INTV after Mattel shut down Mattel Electronics.

Hidden credits

Hold 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 change

The Telegames re-release's name was changed because the Disney license had expired. The title screen was also removed.

Special Edition

Mattel 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.
