Trivia

This machine takes up a phenomenal amount of floorspace; 16 square feet, which is truely massive for something from this era. It is rumoured that there is still one being operated at a large 'family entertainment center' in the US even today!

Cabinet Information

The game is housed in a massive cabinet -- an eight-player machine with eight set of identical controls. The monitor faces directly upwards and players look down onto it. There are mirrors overhead that allow passers-by to see the game action while people are playing.

Miscellaneous

A special panel was available on the game which allowed an attendant to determine player starting, etc.. This panel (essentially just a bunch of switches) was mounted in a box that was intended to be worn around the neck of the attendant.
