Introduction
"Alien Attack" was originally written for the VIC-20 by a couple of students. Commodore's educational sales representatives were so impressed with the game, they bought the rights to it.

The game was renamed "Jack Attack" in honor of Jack Tramiel, founder of Commodore, and in recognition of Tramiel's "stomping on" suppliers and other computer manufacturers (Atari, Mattel, Texas Instruments, etc).
