Message: Can't remember what an arcade game was called.
Posted by: Fozzybear98 on Friday 10/14/05

Back in the late '70s early '80s, my then best friend and I would go to the mall and play this old but great game. I can't remember the name of it for the life of me.
Anyhow, the game was black and white and the graphics were grids/lines. I would guess it was 2D. It was a stand up arcade game with 1 or 2 players and both could play at the same time. I think it had joy sticks and possibly two buttons for each player, but I'm not sure.
It had a grid of a planet horizon that was turning and you had a cross-hair. These spaceships (grids also) would come from behind the horizon and you would shoot at them as they were shooting at you. Each different type of spaceship had different scores. As the game progressed, the harder it was to destroy them and the faster they would move.
Anyone have any idea what this might be?
