Product Information
One of nine Atari VCS launch titles, Surround is an enjoyable, though graphically crude game in which players maneuver a dot that leaves a barrier behind as it moves. The object is to force your opponent's dot to collide with your barrier or the playfield border. Fourteen different game variations allow for diagonal movement, progressive speedup and more. Gameplay, sound effects, and graphics are overly simplistic, but two-player games are highly competitive and lots of fun. Surround was a big influence on the Light Cycles sequence of the Tron arcade game.
