From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Spacechase is a fixed shooter for the Atari 2600 written by Ed Salvo and published by Games by Apollo in 1981. In orbit of an unnamed 'moon,' the player uses a Starcruiser to destroy formations of alien enemy raiders that attack from above. The lunar surface rotates in the background, but has no effect on gameplay. The player's ship can maneuver in eight directions within the lower third of the game screen. As the game advances, the aliens attacks begin to include 'Lazer-Directed Heat-Seeking Proton Missiles'.
   The game features single and two-player games, with the latter having players alternate turns. The game can be handicapped for each player by setting the Atari's Difficulty Switch. In the 'A' position the player's shots are slower than when the switch is in the 'B' position.
