Wing War - Atari 2600 Game Instructions




  • Hunt and destroy natural enemies to score points and create
    valuable crystals.
  • Gather Fire, Air and Water Crystals to gain more power and defensive strength. Be sure to keep Fire and Water Crystals apart!
  • Create Super crystals by gathering all 3 elements, then make a daring raid through the secret passage to capture a sparkling diamond!
  • Find and bring back Dragon eggs to win extra lives.

To Fly
  • Press Fire button to flap the Dragon's Wings and gain altitude (each time you press a button the wings flap once).
  • The dragon descends when you don't flap its wings.
    • Pull joystick DOWN to descend faster.
  • Pull joystick left or right to set the Dragon's direction.
To Throw Fireballs: Push joystick up and diagonally.

To Pick Up Crystals and Eggs: Move joystick UP while the Dragon's feet touch a Crystal or an Egg.

To Drop Off Crystals and Eggs: The Dragon releases them automatically when it reaches the Den.
  • Fly your Dragon to the outside world to get Eggs and Crystals.
    • Flap its wings and find your way out of the Den.
  • On its quest, the Dragon meets many kinds of enemies...
    • Destroy them with fireballs to score points.
    • Most enemies turn into crystals when they're destroyed.
      • When all fireballs are gone, the Dragon has no way to destroy enemies.
    • Every contact with an enemy makes the Dragon lose some strength.
      • When all the Dragon's strength is gone, the next enemy contact kills the Dragon.
  • Each newly-born Dragon has at least 10 fireballs and enough strength to survive 10 contacts with its enemies.

  • To create a Super crystal, bring a Fire, Air and Water crystal back to the Den.
    • IMPORTANT: If Fire and Water are brought to the Den, they'll destroy each other, unless you keep them apart with an Air crystal. Get crystals in either of these sequences:
      • Fire...Air...Water, OR
      • Water...Air...Fire

    Super Crystals: These multi-colored crystals are created when the Dragon brings home a Fire, Air and Water crystal.
