National Game Registry: Warlords

original platform
arcade (1980, Atari)

Atari took the ball and paddle play of their previous hits Pong and Breakout and perfected it for Warlords, an early death match game allowing up to four players to compete simultaneously. Each corner of the screen contains a crown surrounded by a wall.  These barriers can be destroyed by fireballs that players mercilessly ricochet and fling toward each other using their Pong-style paddles.

Warlords was inducted on April 9th, 2009.

Return to the National Game Registry to view more inductees.
