This is why StarFox was released as StarWing in Europe, and why Europe got Lylat Wars instead of Star Fox 64.

This is one of my favourite games for the A2600. :) I really should dig out that system sometime and play it again.

EDIT: Wait, wait, wait. Sorry, I was thinking of Solar Fox. My mistake.

Star Fox is probably the worst game for the Atari 2600.

Heh. While Star Fox is certainly bad, this guy has been quite lucky to avoid all the REAL stinkers on the system.

Despite it being called the same name, it's not the same game. It wasn't even done by Nintendo and Argonaut! Never played it though, but I have read about.

@starboy91 It was already made very clear from the video description that this has nothing to do with the nintendo star fox except for the name.
So I guess this game was made in europe if they weren't able to call the nintendo game starfox in Europe?

GameFAQs says the U.S.

Which makes me wonder why Nintendo's Star Fox didn't get hit by the same copyright name thing.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!
