So, what do you get if you re-use the engine for Meteor!?

Screen Shots

Many people pan Space Hawk as some poor, lame Asteroids knock-off. I liked the sound effects, and that you had the option for "direct" drive vs. "drift" drive. After all, since Mattel chickened out on Meteor! and instead made Astrosmash!, they had to use the engine for something. Of course, you could also play this game forever. I think at one point I had 758 pilots and the game took several hours just to kill all of them. Best Score (Historical): 22 million+ [Got tired of playing. Had 758 guys when I quit!]




ROM No ROM variants have been identified.
Box So far, seven variations have been found.
Manual Ten variants have been identified.
Overlays Two different overlay variations are known to exist.
Label To date, six labels have been recorded.
Easter Eggs No known Easter eggs exist. There is a bug that is explained away by "black holes" being the reason you randomly pop into hyperspace. It's really due to how the Intellivision's controller input signals are encoded.




A total of seven Space Hawk box variants have been documented.
