Tron Game Play
Tron consists of four subgames inspired by the events of the Walt Disney Productions motion picture Tron released in the same year. Most of the 12 difficulty levels are named after programming languages. From lowest to highest: RPG, COBOL, BASIC, FORTRAN, SNOBOL, PL1, PASCAL, ALGOL, ASSEMBLY, OS, JCL, USER.
All cabinets feature an 8-way joystick for moving, with one button for firing or speed control, and a rotary dial for controlling the direction of the fire (a setup also used in Kozmik Krooz’r, another Midway game). The game can be played by one player or by two alternating players as the controls are made for only one player at a time.
The player in the role of Tron has to beat four subgames, each at 12 increasingly difficult levels. All four segments of one level must be completed before continuing on to the next level.
Recognizers do not fire at the player’s tank at all but move at high speed, relentlessly converging on the player’s location, and each still requires three shots to be destroyed.
