is a video game for the Atari 2600
console, developed and published by Mythicon
in 1983. Although the front cover of the game states "Game 1 in Starfox Series," no sequels were ever made, which is most likely because it received negative reception.
The game takes place in the year 4024 AD. The story begins as a robot freighter carrying a cargo of extremely valuable trimetalisium energy crystals crash lands on the planetoid
Beta-7. An enemy star cruiser, escorted by a squadron of fighter drones, is en route to the planetoid to seize the crystals.
The player's objective is to recover the crystals before the enemy while doing battle with the fighter drones.
