Description
This gaming software, StarFighter, was developed by Sparky Starks for Adventure International, a division of Scott Adams, Inc. It was released in 1981 for the TRS-80 Model I and III. The software is contained on a 5.25” floppy disk and includes an instruction booklet, registration card, and manual. The manual states that "The SC-78503 STARFIGHTER craft is the most sophisticated ship known to man. You, as its pilot, are instructed that the current state of relations with the Petro Resource Conglomerate is a state of war. As such, you are charged with ridding the galaxy of dreaded P.R.C. craft, to insure life as we know it in the Solar Galactic Authority. A STARFIGHTER tour of duty lasts anywhere from twenty minutes to six hours."
