Space Spartans is a space combat simulator video game released for the Mattel Intellivision, initially programmed by Brian Dougherty, and later completed by William C. Fisher and Steve Roney. It is notable for being the first game released which supported the Intellivoice voice synthesis module.

Concept[edit]

Space Spartans is a clone of Star Raiders.[1] Its objective is to outlast an alien onslaught for as long as possible. Defeat is inevitable, so victory terms are defined as how long a player can last through any one game and how effective they are at destroying alien ships and starbases.
