Space Duel is an arcade game released in 1982 by Atari Inc. It is a direct descendant of the original Asteroids, with asteroids replaced by colorful geometric shapes like cubes, diamonds, and spinning pinwheels. Shoot all objects to complete a level. Space Duel is the first and only multi-player interactive vector game by Atari. When Asteroids Deluxe did not sell well, this game was taken off the shelf and released to moderate success.

Legacy[edit | edit source]

Space Duel is included within the Atari Anthology for Windows, Xbox, and PlayStation 2 and the PlayStation version of Atari Anniversary Edition.

A port of Space Duel was released on the Atari Flashback 2, reproducing only the single-player mode.

Space Duel was made available on Microsoft's Game Room service for its Xbox 360 console and for Windows-based PCs in May 2010.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • David Plummer holds the official world record for this game with a maximum 623,720 points.[1]
