The original Yars’ Revenge is an Atari classic. A single screen shooter with a unique ‘neutral’ zone for dodging attacks, it’s a game that has endured in popularity through the years – most old school gamers would have fond memories of it.
And it bears virtually no resemblence to the new Yars’ Revenge, now available on the Xbox, and (shortly, we hope), on the PSN and PC in the future.
– The ability to customise upgrades and RPG elements – Gain experience while customizing your armor and weapon abilities.
So, which do you think is the original game, and which is the modern reimaging?
So Atari has essentially come up with a completely new IP here. Which is probably just as well. A modern-looking single screen shooter would be a little strange, we imagine.
