It's a wonderful twin stick vector arcade game by Atari.
Has RG ever done a write up on Black Widow and if so, what issue number?

Congratulations - it's a great game. If I had room this is one of the machines I'd love to have.
... but since that is not the case I've made a remake for Windows and Mac :)
Check it out and please let me know what you think. I've put a lot of work into getting the gameplay and rules as close to the original game as possible. There is a few differences from the arcade game .. but I remade it in 2012 and I've forgotten what those differences are now, lol.

The online scoring doesn't work anymore though. Perhaps I'll get around to fixing it at some point, but it'll probably crash the game if you try to sync the scores with the online server :cry:
