Star Strike is a game released for the Atari 2600 and the Intellivision.


The game resembles the X-Wing Fighter assault sequence on the Death Star near the end of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. You control a fighter flying down the trench of a immense battle station that's out to destroy Earth, dropping bombs on its missile silos in order to destroy the station. You must watch out for alien ships that fire upon your fighter to keep you from completing your task, and fireballs that can mess up the controls of your fighter. You don't have a whole lot of time to destroy the battle station, because the Earth is slowly coming into view, and you also have one fighter to complete the mission, so do your best.


The Atari 2600 version, though sold under the M Network banner, was actually marketed by INTV Corporation, the company to whom Mattel had sold its software division to.
