- TRIVIA -

Vastar was released in December 1983 in Japan. It was the last game manufactured by Orca. Officially had the company bankrupted about the same time as the game was finished. For this reason Orca could not sell the game under their own brand, so they did use the alias 'Sesame Japan Corp.' for this purpose.

- TIPS AND TRICKS -

* Warp : When you reach the second radar that pops up from the ground, after you landed the first time and gone though the forest, put your shield on and go directly into the laser firing turret. You should activate a warp to the second spaceship!
