INTELLIVISION CARTRIDGE [Activision #M-005]
Produced by Cheshire Engineering for Activision
Design/Program: David Rolfe
Beamrider was an original Intellivision game programmed at Cheshire Engineering under contract to Activision. Inspiration for the game came to David Rolfe one day as he was leaning back in his chair staring at the ceiling. Suddenly the receding grid of acoustical tiles became an outer space playing field.
Activision later released versions of Beamrider for Atari 2600, Atari 5200 and ColecoVision.
