Cosmic Avenger is a horizontally scrolling shooter arcade game developed and published by Universal Entertainment Corporation and released in 1981. Like Universal’s Lady Bug, Cosmic Avenger was not a hit in arcades, but found success and a larger audience as a launch title for the ColecoVision console. It was not ported to other systems. Wes Hupp holds the official record for this game with 117,290 points on November 17, 1982.
