- TRIVIA -

Released in October 1977.

Atari Destroyer was a unique 1 player experience. With a combination of realistic controls, sound effects and the use of 3D cardboard graphics overlaying the monitor the game gave the player a feel of playing a realistic sea battle game. With sonar and explosion sounds from the left and right speakers the game had a fully immersed experience for 1977.

Nik Meeks holds the official record for this game with 4,000 points on June 3, 2007.
