    ST Star Raiders®

    The Great Galactic Adventure

    Zycroids, savage mindless robots, are forcing their way into our galaxy. Convincing data shows that Zycroids once were swirling masses of space garbage that mutated into a mechanical army programmed to destroy all life.

    Star Raiders are the only force strong enough to hold off the Zycroids. But the aliens are crack shots, and they're costing us. We've got to find more pilots or the galaxy is doomed!

    We think you've got the right stuff. We want you to command our most advanced spacecraft—the Starcruiser. Your mission: Find and destroy the Zycroid fighters in the Katsaurii Quadrant.

    You'll use the Starcruiser's specialized instruments and weaponry to track and eliminate the aliens. But you've got to keep the Federation StarBases from being destroyed in order to stay alive yourself.

    Your victories will take you from Novice level to Pilot, Warrior, and even Star Commander status. If you fail, all peace-loving humanoids will suffer a horrible fate.

    The challenge is enormous. Only a few Star Raiders will succeed. But who knows—one of them could be you!

    Atari 5200 Catalog 1982:
      As a new cadet, you must first master the basics of flight simulation and computer training before you can move up the ranks and see real action. If you show promise, you'll be promoted quickly, and join the elite STAR RAIDERS on board the ultimate in sophisticated fighter space craft. Who knows? You might even make it to the top as a Star Commander. But this is tough service, so don't get too cocky, or you could find yourself demoted to Garbage Scow Captain.
