Discs of TRON is an arcade game released in 1983. It is the sequel to TRON, both of which are based on Disney's motion picture, TRON.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The player as Tron must beat Sark by throwing discs at him (a maximum of three at a time, which would return to the player) and eventually derezz him or push him outside the platforms. While the player, along with the discs, can use a deflector, Sark has two more weapons: a chaser and a superchaser, that can only be destroyed with the discs.
As the game progresses, the player is given different configurations of platform rings to jump and stand on. The video game also uses a spinning knob that is used to move a mouse-like cursor around the playing field so you can judge where the discs will deflect off the walls and on later levels the knob can be pulled up or pushed down depending on the height of the platforms.
Notes[edit | edit source]
This game was going to go on the original TRON video game, but was moved off due to hardware limitations and time constraints.
A port of this game was included as a hidden bonus in TRON 2.0 for the Game Boy Advance. It is also available as a selectable game on Xbox Live Arcade.
Legacy[edit | edit source]
This game was released just before the video game crash of 1983, and was later ported to the Commodore 64. In 2004, it was released again in the Game Boy Advance game Tron 2.0. On February 13, 2008 Disney Interactive released an updated port on Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360.
