Leider musste aufgrund der Technik auch das Spiel etwas gekürzt werden. Auf den ersten Blick fällt schon einmal die abgespeckte Grafik auf, die nicht einmal mehr die Markierungen auf dem Boden enthält und auch die Bossgegner sind im Spiel nicht mehr enthalten. Andererseits passt dies aber auch eher in die Spielepalette des Atari 2600, die eher auf straighte Action ohne komplexe Spielinhalte setzt. Wer aber das Original kennt, wird trotzdem ein wenig enttäuscht sein.
The graphics and the sound are fairly good for 1982. I have no major complaints in that area. My only major complaint is the fact that there is only the one game mode. The game select switch does nothing. As a result, this game has the possibility of becoming repetitive. Add to that a hero that doesn’t move as fast as I would like and you have the makings of a game that can and will cause some minor frustration at times. Between the lack of game modes and the possibility of some frustration, I would say that this particular game isn’t for everybody, but it is not a bad game and is certainly worth taking the time to play a little.

Un giochino piacevole ma molto ripetitivo. La realizzazione è caratterizzata da buone animazioni e da un sonoro sufficiente che si contrappongono ad un'arena dallo scarso dettaglio grafico. Se volete a tutti i costi questo gioco, provate la versione per Intellivision credo che la troverete migliore

The sluggishness of Deadly Discs made me hate the game when I first played it and I figured it would be a D+ at best. However, extended play made me realize it’s actually quite addictive. It’s still only average and could have been so much better with a few simple tweaks, but it’s worth a mild recommendation.

As a result, this edition feels second-rate. In addition, an astute reader noted that it takes far too long for the serious challenge to kick in. With no variety in the stages, Deadly Disc's gameplay quickly becomes monotonous.
