Advertised in ARCADIAN 1, no. 8 (Jul. 20, 1979): 68.
Bally BASIC, 300-BAUD.

This is a horse racing game for 1-4 players. The odds for six horses are shown at the beginning of the game and then the player(s) choose to bet on one of them. The bugle sounds-off and the race begins. The horse "graphics" are represented by six numbers that race (move horizontally) across the screen. Will your horse come through for you this time? Will you lose this week's paycheck or can you break the bank?

Star Trek Star Trek.
By Scott Waldinger.
Advertised in ARCADIAN 1, no. 8 (Jul. 20, 1979): 68.

This is a small "Star Trek" game written in Bally BASIC. The player fires at Klingons in different quadrants using short and long range sensors. This game has some simple graphics, which set it apart from many of the other "Star Trek" games of the late 1970s.

This game was archived by Kevin Bunch in June of 2021 by typing it in from a BASIC listing using the using the 300-baud archive tools KCSWIN and TXT2PRG under Windows 10. Extensive archiving notes are included in this game's archive.

Star Wars Star Wars.
By Scott Waldinger.
Advertised in ARCADIAN 1, no. 8 (Jul. 20, 1979): 68.

The object of Star Wars is to destroy as many Tie fighters as you can before you are destroyed.

To destroy the tie fighter you have to get him to be lined up with the box at the bottom center of the screen. To get him to move turn the knob the opposite way that you want him to go. Thus, if you want him to go to the left turn the knob to the right (clockwise) and vice versa.

You can also make the Tie fighter get bigger or smaller by pulling the joystick toward you to make the Tie fighter get smaller and push it away from you to make him get bigger. However, if he gets too close (too big) he will fire at you. If this happens you have to make him get smaller. Also, at random times, the Tie fighter will fire at you. If it hits you, you will hear some funny noises and the screen will go blank. This means that you were destroyed and the game is over.

Try to get the highest score you can and may the force be with you!!
