James Bond 007 is a 1983 side-scrolling video game developed and published by Parker Brothers for the Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Atari 8-bit family, Commodore 64, and ColecoVision, and distributed in Japan by Tsukuda Original for the Sega SG-1000.
The player controls the titular character of James Bond across four levels. The player is given a multi-purpose vehicle that acts as an automobile, a plane, and a submarine. The vehicle can fire shots and flare bombs, and travels from left to right as the player progresses through each level. The player can shoot or avoid enemies and obstacles that appear throughout the game, including boats, frogmen, helicopters, missiles, and mini-submarines.
The game's four levels are loosely based on missions from various James Bond films:
Diamonds are Forever (1971): The player rescues Tiffany Case from an oil rig.
The Spy Who Loved Me (1977): The player destroys an underwater laboratory.
Moonraker (1979): The player destroys satellites.
For Your Eyes Only (1981): The player retrieves radio equipment from a sunken boat.
This version of James Bond 007 was designed for Atari 2600, which was commercially very successful video game console of second generation produced by Atari from 1977 to 1992. It was the first console that used removable memory modules with games. At the time of its greatest fame, more than 30 million units of this console were sold for about $ 200 a piece. To date, the game library for this console contains nearly 1,000 original games. More information about the
