Color Computer Cassette-Based Games

Radio Shack has produced several cassette-based computer games for the TRS-80 Color Computer with Extended BASIC for children seven years of age and older. The three games require joysticks and encourage players to work together.

Peanut Butter Panic! is a two-person game in which players jump for stars to make peanut butter sandwiches. By working together, players are able to catch the most valuable stars.

In Taxi, players get behind the wheel of a cab. By maneuvering around the street grids based on city maps, players try to deliver as many passengers as possible before time runs out. When played cooperatively, the game encourages communication and division of labor.

Star Trap is a maze game in which players attempt to trap stars by blocking their paths. Two players working as a team are more effective than one player.

Each of these games is priced at $19.95.

Another game now available from Radio Shack for the Color Computer on tape is ZAXXON. The player becomes the pilot of a fighter spacecraft on a mission to meet and destroy the deadly ZAXXON robot. Points are scored by destroying a variety of threats from enemy planes, base missiles, firing gun emplacements, and radar towers.

The game sells for $34.95 and requires a joystick.
