Assault is a video game on the Atari 2600 developed and published by Bomb in 1983. The game involves shooting alien space ships.
GameplayEditThe player is presented with an alien mother ship, which continually deploys three smaller ships during play. The mother ship and the smaller vessels shoot at a weapon the player is in command of, and the player's aim is to eliminate the opposition whilst preventing the weapon from receiving enough fire to destroy it. The player uses a joystick to operate the game, and only one player at a time can play. The game program is stored on a cartridge.
Many gamers have reviewed this game as a clone or rip-off of Galaxian, Demon Attack and Phoenix. Other gamers have said the game to be unoriginal.
