Attack Force Microgame

Microgames were a phenomenon of especially the 1970’s and early 1980’s. Attack Force was released by TSR, who was later bought out by Wizards of the Coast.

Attack Force minigame is a fast and exciting space combat game for two players. YOU, as leader of the dashing Arcturan pilots, must use your knowledge of the Novaship’s only weak point to destroy it before it reaches Arcturus. YOU, as the commander of the Novaship, must use your lasers, blasters, and pom-poms to keep the Arcturans at bay until you can launch your Cobra Starfighters and destroy them!

This game is quite simple but at the same time very nice to play for it’s time. The playing time is maximum 1 hour. The two sides are not well balanced because imperial forces are too strong for the rebels and can happen that the game ends in 4 or 5 turns. On the other hand, if the rebel player is lucky and clever he will have several advantages in maneuverability.
