The flood of video game ads opened up when the Atari 2600 hit
stores in the 1980s, and really hasn't stopped since then. Looking back over the last
30 years of mainstream comics, you can bet there's at least one
full-color ad in every one of them.

To look back at "Star Wars: Jedi Arena," one of the ones I remember well, and a ... uh ... honest-to-goodness transcript of its development meeting, visit comicsonthebrain.com!

Wow. That was really bad, even by 2600 standards. I think the janitor idea was actually marginally better.

I looked at the video for a bit. Something happens in the middle and the score goes up to 0-1, but I couldn't figure what.

Was this a one or two player game? How do you score points in it?

Each player had shields. If a player failed to stop the remote's electric shock with their lightsaber then then shield was worn down. Once the remote is able to attack past the deteriorated shield then the other player receives a point.

Wow, that game looks boring. I think I'd rather play the ET game.

Check out the Secret Headquarters (my store) website! It's a pretty lame website, but I did it myself, so tough noogies

Listen to WOXY.com, it's the future of rock-n-roll!
