From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Star Ship is a first-person shooter video game cartridge developed by Atari, Inc. for its Video Computer System (later known as the Atari 2600). The game was one of the nine launch titles offered when the Atari 2600 launched on September 11,1977. It was designed and programmed by Bob Whitehead. It was based on the Atari arcade game Starship 1. The re-branded Sears TeleGames version was titled Outer Space.
   The game was the first space-related game developed for the Atari VCS. The player(s) used the joystick controller to achieve one of the following objectives:

  • Destroying as many spacecraft and robots as possible within a time limit, all while dodging asteroids.
  • Alternating between avoiding enemy fire from spacecraft and firing at the opponent-controlled craft (human or computer).
  • Avoiding asteroids and other varied space objects to cover the greatest distance possible.
  • Landing the space module on a lunar landing pad. The moon can either be stationary or be computer- or human opponent-controlled.
