A heroic mosquito? It might not be something that you see every day, but Yars Revenge was a major title for classic Atari consoles. And now it’s back.
Don’t swat him
Yars: Recharged thrusts players to the center of a daring attack against the enemy homeworld, guarded by mechanical hives that pulse deadly cannons and emit flurries of swirling missiles. Find pockets of safety amongst the hail of incoming fire, and then dart forward in daring forays to chip away at the enemy’s defenses. Gather enough energy by destroying enemy shields to power up the massively destructive Zorlon cannon, pulsing searing blasts of cosmic energy and annihilating enemies. Yars: Recharged challenges players to remain acutely aware of visual and audio cues that hint at impending danger, and master the smooth flying controls as they navigate increasingly complex levels.Atari press release
Yars Recharged is set to take a bite out of Xbox and PlayStation platforms, as well as the Switch, PC, Stadia, and Atari VCS some time later this year.
