Trivia

This was the first of three similar games designed and developed by Toru Iwatani, the creator of Puckman or (Pac-Man in the U.S.). Originally he wanted to make pinball machines for Namco, but Namco did not want to do pinball so this series of games is the resulting compromise.

Miscellaneous

This is the first of three similar ball and paddle pinball style games licensed by Namco. The other two are Bomb Bee and Cutie Q.
