Cosmic Avenger is a horizontally scrolling shooter arcade game developed and published by Universal and released in 1981. The only home port was to the ColecoVision video game console.


Mark Bussler from Classic Game Room notes that Cosmic Avenger is the first continuous horizontal side-scrolling space shooter (though it is actually predated by Konami's Scramble). Cosmic Avenger looks quite well and provides a rewarding challenge to the player.[2]
