The second Intellivision game based on Disney’s Iron (1982), Tron Maze-A-Tron puts players in the role of Flynn, a computer programmer who suddenly finds himself inside the circuitry of a computer. The game is divided into two sections, neither of which is worth playing. The Circuit Maze has players running around resetting numbers on Ram chips while avoiding Recognizers. The Master Control Program revolves around shooting at numbers to match them up. Tron Maze-A-Tron has nice computer tech audio/visual effects, but that doesn’t save it from being boring, frustrating, and just plain bad.
