Starship 1 – Starship Trooper 1
Description: Starship Trooper 1 is a first-person shooter arcade game developed, manufactured, and released by Atari in 1977. It contains the first known Easter egg in any arcade game. Starship 1 was later ported to the Atari VCS as Star Ship.
The object of Starship 1 is to destroy alien spacecraft while maneuvering through star and asteroid fields.
The game uses a first person perspective on a black-and-white monitor. The player's ship is controlled with a control yoke that is connected to two potentiometers. There is also a lever that controls whether the ship is moving "fast" or "slow". Compared to common arcade games of the time, Starship 1 was comparatively advanced, but used quite a bit of analog technology that would become less common in arcade games in following years.
