Action/Strategy Games

Several new games for the Atari and Commodore 64 computers are forthcoming from Epyx. They include:

  • PitStop is a formula I race game in which the players compete in the pit as well as on the track. The race cars include speed and steering controls, and the way you drive affects your car's performance: the faster you take the corners, the faster your tires wear out.
  • Psi Warrior is a three-dimensional, chess-like game. Up to four players compete against each other or the computer, teleporting around the playing field, and using bolts of energy in their battles.
  • In All-Star Baseball, players choose an all-star team made up of players from over the last 50 years. Another player or the computer can field the opposing team.
  • Gateway to Apshai, the latest sequal to Temple of Apshai, combines role playing, strategy, and fast action as the player battles his way in and out of the dungeons.

Epyx is also introducing a VIC-20 game, Fun With Music. In the game, the player composes a tune and then has to play the song (or one supplied by the computer) without missing a note.
