About The Game
Skydiver is an arcade video game.
This is quite a fun game, where you score points for landing on an ever decreasing patch of 'good' land. Why 'good'? As you descend without opening your parachute your landing point becomes smaller, but the points become higher, just don't leave pulling the ripcord too late because the Newtonian laws concerning gravity is working against you. Each time you successfully land the plane goes lower.
The designer of this game was a pinball fan, so this is the first video game to have a pinball feature. The lamps behind the marquee for SKYDIVER are software controllable. When you start the game, the letters flash one at a time. When you jump, the lamps stop on whatever letter is on, and if you land successfully, you 'earn' that letter below your score. Spell out Skydiver, and, depending on the options settings, you could earn a free life, a free game, or bonus points.
