Atari Skydiver

Atari Does It Again!
Skydiver is a totally new concept in video skill games. The first of its kind! Anywhere! Authentic ripcord controls, realistic video animation, new Spellout bonus incentive, new sound effects, including musical tunes, are standout attraction and replay features.

The Realism of Actual Skydiving
Split-second timing and skill is the key to high scoring. 1 or 2 players can try their skill. (Single players compete with the computer.) Each player skydives until 3, 4, 5, or 6 "missed jumps" are used up. The ground target appears in a different position after each successful jump. "Wind direction," indicated by video windsocks, is random and variable. Watching airplane speed, wind direction and position of target, the player decides when to jump, how long to hold freefall (to increase target score), pull ripcord and "guide" jumper to target.

High Risk Scoring Challenge
As long as the jumper is in freefall, the target gets smaller in size and increases in point value – the longer the fall, the higher the score for hitting the target. Watch out! If the chute is not pulled in time, the jumper crashes and a video ambulance carries off the unlucky jumper.

Built-In Incentive
The new S-K-Y-D-I-V-E-R Spellout double score bonus is an exciting incentive feature. If the "Jump" button is pressed when an individual letter in the name is flashing on the attract panel, the same letter appears on the monitor and flashes… If jump is successful, the letter stays lit. When all letters are lit, player receives double score. And a musical fanfare that lets everybody know!
