DescriptionLaser Gates is a side scrolling shooter. Failsafe detonators inside the cryptic computer have malfunctioned, and your job is to pilot a spaceship to destroy them before they explode. The narrow passage you'll need to fly through is well guarded: deadly force fields appear and disappear, rocket launchers attack, and deadly byte bats will get in your way. Your ship has a limited shield; each time you are hit by one of these enemies, the shield loses energy. When the shields energy is completely gone, the game ends. Also be on the lookout for energy pods which can replenish the shield (these don't appear often, so be sure not to miss one)! To deal with some of the enemies and obstacles your ship is equipped with a laser. Naturally, your mission is timed: you will need to make your way to the next detonator before time expires and it explodes! Points are earned by disabling the detonators, destroying enemies and successfully making it past the force fields.

DevelopmentThis game began life as Inner Space at VentureVision but VentureVision went bankrupt before it could be finished. Its programmer, Dan Oliver, then brought the game to Imagic where it was finished and released as Laser Gates.
ReferencesThe game revolves going through the caverns of the Cryptic Computer in order to destroy detonators. These detonators have the number 6507 written on them and is most likely a sly reference to the microprocessor found in the Atari 2600 and the Atari 8-bit systems.
