I recently found some games and a system in a closet in my folks house. Two of them, Warlords and Defender, have a white sticker on the back with the head (I assume) of a teddy bear, that says "special feature."

I can't find any info on these, anybody have any ideas?

  • Are these harder to find then regular versions?

The teddy bear sticker:

This indicates that the game contains special modes to help younger children get more enjoyment out of the game.

From the Warlords manual:


GAMES 21, 22, and 23 are special versions for young children. The game play is slowed down considerably. All three games feature ricochet(rather than CATCH), and all three have fireballs(slow balls). The only difference in the three games is the number of players(4, 3, or 2). Check the GAME SELECT MATRIX.

Atari did this with several other games including Berserk, Missile Command, Asteroids, and Yars' Revenge/Return.
