Howard Scott Warshaw
A “Yar” is a spaceship/bug creature whose mission in life is to exact revenge on its archenemy, the Qotile, cowardly hiding behind a huge wall. Destroying this barrier is only one of the issues that the Yar must deal with, including avoiding a roving cursor and lining up the power shot the it acquires by eating parts of the wall (?!). The screen is split by a strip of static that, combined with droning sound effects, results in a surprisingly hypnotic experience.
Yar’s Revenge was inducted on February 23rd, 2009.
