Gameplay video


1) First electro-mechanical full motion video game that used film as part of gameplay. (first full motion video game is Auto Test).

2) Game used electro-mechanical gun that launches rockets with a joystick control. The game has electronic sound, and the fired missile can be steered by the player after it is launched by using the joystick. Missile uses a looping film strip to show the planes on a projection screen. The player moves a small motorized tank via two buttons (left and right) which moves the motorized launcher, and then fires ahead of the incoming missiles. Once the missile is launched, the missile can be slightly steered into the oncoming planes (flight control) by moving the joystick left or right. If a plane is hit, an explosion is heard and an explosion flashes on the projection screen.

3) Watch Wild gunman (1974) for more games based on film.

4) An arcade game or coin-op is a coin-operated entertainment machine typically installed in public businesses such as restaurants, bars and amusement arcades. Most arcade games are video games, pinball machines, electro-mechanical games, redemption games or merchandisers.

5) Because all early video games was mostly only for students, this is the first video game that children could play (cause it was located in the arcades and everybody could play it).

6) Game is not emulated.
