    Description of the game:
    Another of the Atari color XY games that I love so much. Black Widow is basically vector Robotron and is equally as fun to play. Most Black Widow machines are actually Gravitars converted, mine happens to be a factory conversion and is in amazing condition. Everything is original except for the T-molding.

    Restoration Process:
  • Rebuild the monitor
  • Install LV2000
  • Install NOS sticks
  • Clean

    How do you know if it's a factory conversion or not? My Black Widow has this side art but I think there is Gravitar side art underneath...

    Almost all Black Widows are Gravitar conversions, however, the ones Atari converted in the factory have the appropriate markings on the harness and serial number stickers.

    Atari made both Gravitar AND Black Widow conversion kits - I've seen both boxes. Can't imagine anyone convertinga Black Widow to a Gravitar though...
