Description: 

Discs of Tron is the second arcade game released after the 1982 Disney movie Tron.

While the first (simply called Tron) has several games (gridbugs, lightcycles, entering the MCP cone and tanks), Discs of Tron is inspired by the short sequence in the movie where the character Flynn beats another trapped program and eventually "derezzes" him, and when Tron is introduced, beating four "computer players" very early in the movie, which seemed to inspire the home version of DoT (for ATARI2600 and Colecovision), where the player is trapped in a square arena, trowing a boomerang-like disc against enemies coming from opening gaps in the wall.

While in the movie both players were standing on top of a platform made of 5 concentric circles that would disappear if an energy pellet, thrown from an arm extension similar to a Basque Pelota/Jai Alai against a target between both platforms, touched it, DoT used several platforms, and the player had to beat Sark by throwing him discs and eventually derezz him or push him outside the platforms. While the player, along the discs, can use a deflector, Sark has two more weapons: a chaser and a super chaser, that can only be destroyed with the discs.
