Philips Videopac 39: Freedom Fighters on Magnavox Odyssey 2

Gameplay Overview:

Dual Joystick Control: Navigate your starship with precision using both joysticks. The left joystick manages the conventional space drive, restricting movement within the current screen, while the right joystick activates the hyperspace drive, allowing high-speed, side-scrolling travel.

Laser Cannon: Use the action button on either joystick to fire the ship's laser cannon, crucial for fending off the Empire's Pulsar warships and their drone mines.

Game Modes:

Attack Mode: Engage enemy ships and mines to accumulate points. Destroy enemy ships for 5 points, mines for 1 point, and rescue prisoners for a substantial 20 points.

Evasion Mode: With the laser cannon inactive, your objective is to avoid enemy attacks. Earn points for every prisoner rescued and for evading Pulsar warships.


One or Two Players: Play solo or team up in two-player mode, where the second player acts as a copilot, handling the ship’s hyperspace drive and laser cannon.

Strategic Rescues: Balance offensive and defensive maneuvers to rescue prisoners and avoid disintegration from enemy forces.
