Very cool game! This one's all about peripheral vision. The original game uses 4 directional buttons and a fire button. Thanks to the magic of MAME, if you map the fire button to be all directions and map the directions to a joystick, you can really rack up some time on this one.

I have to double check but I think the way I have it setup is you move the joystick then press the fire button. According to the scores on Twin Galaxies my score is competitive using that control setup.

This game looks like it might have inspired Imagic's Cosmic Ark.

And I think some of the sound effects were reused in Gorf

You're right. I wasn't at my machine and I remembered it wrong. It may work the way I explained but I think it's enough just to substitute a joystick for the directional buttons.

The grandfather of all twitch games. The difficulty certainly ramps up far quicker than the Astrocade port.

Just an observation: the players are free to request any arcade/MAME game in the universe (provided that they are available on both platforms) but participation goes way up when the game of the week is one from the golden age of arcade games.

Space Zap : 70750

 

This game was only ported to Bally Astrocade.

I think, it's called Space Fortress there.

 

Fast shooter.
