Atari Vector Games



Atari built 13 commercial Vector Games from the first "Lunar Lander" in 1979 with a b/w CRT until "Star Wars & The Empire Strikes Back" in 1983/5 with color CRT. Some of these machines were commercially more or less a desaster. Although technically brilliant they often lacked robustness and failed much way too often for the operators. One must remember, as opposed to nowadays, these Arcade Games were built to earn money which means that they were supposed to run for long periods without any operator intervention/repair. In this aspect vector games were not too good for earning money with them.

Today all of these are scarce at least here in Europe. One must have some luck to find such a game on EBAY or locally. Even if you find one the prices are very high. Most operators know in the meantime what specialties they have.
