Game Introduction

This game was the part of the basis for the Atari 2600 cartridge. There are three possible positions for each anti-aircraft gun, each selected by one of the control panel buttons. Pressing a button aims and fires the gun.

Game Play

The game is played against a timer. Planes fly past in groups of two or one-by-one at random altitudes. Players compete against each other to shoot down the most planes before time runs out. Flight direction is also random.

Trivia

There is an undocumented option available that switches the planes into UFO's. Pin 14 of the 003127 IC -- a PROM located at grid location K1 -- is tied to ground, but also has a pullup resistor. Cutting the ground trace causes address bit A4 to be pulled high, selecting the UFO data. A jumper can be installed to easily switch back and forth between planes and UFO's. The UFO version of the game was probably never released.

Miscellaneous

It seems as though there never was an "Anti-Aircraft I". The game is referred to as both "Anti-Aircraft" and "Anti-Aircraft II" in the documentation. The "II" probably refers to the fact that this is a two-player game (e.g. Sprint II) rather than a sequel.
