Electron is a clone of the arcade hit Tron. It is basically 4 arcade games in one, and this version managed to cram that into 16K (unlike other clones, like Oregon Computer's Kron). The four stages are the same as the arcade: Spiders (where one has to shoot and dodge constantly dividing spiders to get to the center chamber of the screen); MCP Cone, where one has to play a Bustout style game, where the wall is constantly coming down at you, and scrolls sideways to boot; Light Cycles, where one is in race against a computer controlled player, tring to box each other in by drawing lines (later levels you have multiple computer players to worry about); and Tanks, where one is in a maze, trying to destroy opposing tanks, with ricocheting bullets, and a hyperspace style teleport square in the middle of the maze.
