The Dreadnaught Factor is an awesome game. If you're also a Star Wars geek, this game is a dream-come-true for the Intellivision aficionado. How can you not see the first ship as anything but an Imperial Star Destroyer, and your fighter as an X-Wing? Superb graphics, gameplay, and sound effects make this game a standout on the platform.

If you were good enough, and bothered to take a picture of your game score and send it in, you could join the Dreadnaught Destroyers club. I did! Here's my patch - still has the iron-on instructions on the back!

Title Screen Heck, skip that manual business and just start!
Begin Your Attack Run On your way to the jump gate.
Take Out that Dreadnaught! You get a good sense of the scale of the ships. Movement and control are smooth and well-done—the bit of inertia in ship control is sweet. Sound is also great.
