Favourite of the bunch?

For me, it's Activision's Starmaster. Gotta love that laser sound!

the keypad control with Raiders swings it for me , though Activision had a habit of making improved versions of other peoples' games , Robot Tank (Battlezone) being a prime example

Dang, pushed the wrong button and submitted to fast. I meant to add four options, and strangely cannot edit the poll now.

The other two options that I'm aware of (although I think they fall into the "also ran" category):

* Phaser Patrol (SuperCharger/Arcadia)
* Star Voyager (Imagic)

Phaser Patrol for me. I didn't get to play it until I discovered emulators. But, it is a great version of this type of game.
