Game Introduction

One of Bally Sente's first games, this game was remembered for its good player graphics, the skate trails, and the Zamboni that cleaned the ice after games. Hat Trick, despite its simple skate, shoot, and save gameplay, was considered one of the better sports games of the early 1980's.
