Atari classic Yar’s Revenge gets revamped and comes to Xbox Live Arcade

Apr 14, 2011

I bet a lot of gamers played Yar's Revenge back in the day on their Atari game consoles. If you were a big fan of the original and like retro inspired gaming still today, Atari has a new classic on the Xbox Arcade for you to check out. The game is Yar's Revenge.

The game is on Xbox 360 Arcade right now for 800 Microsoft Points. The game is not a straight up reissue of the original game. It has anime inspired art and a narrative story to it that expands on the story from the original back in the 80's. The game also supports co-op play local.

The player plays as Yar who has been brainwashed by the Qotile empire to do their bidding. Yar gets shot down and rescued by Bar Yarglar and then sets off to get revenge on her master and his assassins. This sounds like a pretty cool game.
