Tac-Scan

1982 SEGA Electronics

Platforms: Commodore Vic-20, Intellivision, Atari 5200, Colecovision and Atari 400/800

Tac-Scan was an early vector-based title by SEGA Electronics in 1982. The game uniquely had you controlling up to seven ships at once, each of which could be taken out by enemy fire. As with most of SEGA’s arcade titles of the time, there were plans for home conversions to the Atari 2600, 400/800, Intellivision, Atari 5200, Colecovision and Commodore Vic 20 (probably Commodore 64 too).
