SPACE SHUTTLE – A JOURNEY INTO SPACE

SPACE SHUTTLE

This cartridge, released by Activision 1982, is very unique compared to most Atari 2600 titles. It’s the first space shuttle mission simulator. Space Shuttle uses all of the console buttons to control things like primary-secondary engines, cargo doors, and landing gear. The manual is a thick, 30-page booklet containing procedures, diagrams, and charts. A quick reference sheet is also included, and there’s even a template to place over your console switches! The screen displays the instrument panel and a view out of the windshield. Activision allegedly worked with NASA to make this as realistic as possible.
