Stratovox - Atari 2600
An alien fleet has assembled.
Only your photon rocket stands between the marauding hordes and a nearby planet with stranded astronauts. The aliens send out formations of fighters to deal with you and to capture the stranded astronauts from the surface of the planet.
Your mission is to destroy all of the aliens before they completely de-populate the planet.
Stratovox, known in Japan as Speak & Rescue, is a 1980 arcade fixed shooter developed and published in Japan by Sun Electronics and released in North America by Taito. It is the first video game with voice synthesis.
Carlos Centeno has now brought Stratovox to the Atari 2600, complete with voice synthesis if you have an AtariVox plugged into your Atari 2600!
Your goal in Stratovox is to shoot aliens attempting to kidnap astronauts that appear on the right side of the screen.
Score 50 or 100 points when you explode an alien ship into smithereens as you dodge lethal enemy rockets! Score from 300 to 1000 points when you rescue a stranded astronaut from the clutches of the evil aliens and return him to his crew! The faster the saucer tries to escape with its prisoner, the more points you'll tally when you destroy it!
As the action continues and your skills improve, the alien attack becomes progressively harder to repel! Several squads can now attack together and make off with more than one astronaut!
When your photon rocket is blasted by a direct alien hit, the planet surface ruptures into explosive booms and triggers a prism of flashing colors throughout the galaxy!
The mission ends when all ten astronauts are carried off or when all three of your photon rockets are destroyed!
- Conquer all 36 Levels!
- Two difficulty modes, Novice and Expert (controlled by Left Difficulty switch).
- Speech support when an AtariVox is plugged into your console!
- AtariVox/SaveKey support to save your high scores for Novice and Expert modes.
If you have an AtariVox or SaveKey plugged into the second controller port, your high scores will be saved for both Novice and Expert modes. Additionally, if you're using an AtariVox, you'll hear a variety of speech in the game while you're playing!
Included with Stratovox is the game cartridge, full-color 8-page manual, and a professionally printed box. Stratovox is available in NTSC and PAL60 television formats. Please specify above when ordering or you will receive an NTSC cartridge by default.
