Tron is the present-day video game sequel to the 1982 cult film classic that wasa landmark of computerized graphical ingenuity. TRON® 2.0, is a story-driven, first-person action game that propels the player into an alternate universe inside a computer. As Jet Bradley (son of the original films hero Alan Bradley) you will combat digital opponents using guns, rods, grenades, missiles, and the iconic TRON disc. Combining the best of the genre with a truly innovative look and breakthrough game play, TRON® 2.0 delivers an adventure unlike any other. It takes PC gaming to a new level with intense action, intense and deadly battles, and high-speed light cycle races.

TRON Maze Challenge - Response to Kevin Lambert and Killer App Mod v1.2 Preview Trailer


For the 18th Anniversary of TRON 2.0 (released August 26, 2003 in North America) I respond to a challenge from the Lead Programmer of TRON 2.0 (when he was at Monolith Productions), Kevin Lambert.

Time stamps of note:

  • 00:02 - TRON 2.0 Lead Programmer Kevin Lambert's TRON Maze Challenge
  • 00:47 - Response
  • 01:29 - A trace of this idea left in the game
  • 01:39 - Light Cycle improvements in Killer App Mod v1.2

Kevin asked if anyone could add a concept that was left out of the final game: Placing the player in a claustrophobic Light Cycle maze like the one seen in the original TRON film, with prompts appearing to let the player know when to turn (somewhat like how the game Dragon's Lair prompted the player when to move).

A fourth Killer App Mod v1.2 Single Player fixes trailer is still forthcoming. Consider this to be a "Preview Trailer 10.5". 🙂

Killer App Mod v1.2 will now include what's needed so you can make your own custom maps/levels to prompt the player to turn when riding a Light Cycle. And we'll most likely end up using this concept in User Error 3, LDSO's upcoming follow-up to the previous User Error 1 and 2 Single Player expansions.

One of the mandates of Killer App Mod v1.2 has always been to fix or enhance the Single Player campaign, a goal partly inspired by the similar (in purpose) System Shock 2 Community Patch (SCP).

You can also check out other new features in v1.2, from an earlier news post.

It makes me so happy to see that there's a mod for this game! I played it 3 or 4 years ago and loved it, despite not being an FPS fan. Unfortunately, I don't have my own copy, but if I ever get the chance to pick this up again I'll take it in a heartbeat!

There, I'll just post a new one altogether...

I played the game when it was released I KNOW it came out years ago.
What I was trying to say is that the movie seems to be all but a complete rip-off of the game Tron 2.0
The stories are ridiculously similar.
Originality is dead in Hollywood, why do you think we see sooooo many remakes these days?

How the hell could this game be based off of Tron Legacy when it came out 7 years before the movie?

Anybody else see a striking similarity of this game and the upcoming Tron Legacy movie? The story seems awfully familiar...

Tron 2.0 is BASED off of the movie Tron Legacy, which is a direct sequel to Tron, an 80s movie.

Tron 2.0 is not based off of Tron Legacy. It's a continuation of the original. Tron Legacy basically borrows this game's story.

Legacy is a direct sequel, and Tron was made in the 80s.
