The tunnel effect was created by a "Box on Box expansion" routine. The video hardware is unique to this game.

Cabinet Information

Players must often lean against the cabinet to keep from falling over from the visual effect of flying through a twisty tunnel. Due to the way that that the cabinet was designed, the stance would effectivly block the view of anyone else in the room, effectively making it a solo adventure.


Manufactured under license from Atari. This game was licenced to another company who redid the graphics and called it Vertigo.

The ships in this game appear to have been based upon the TIE Fighters from "Star Wars".
