Hi

Reminiscing with a mate and trying to identify a game.

Would have been from around 79-80. 
Was in a cockpit.
Similar gameplay to Space Invaders, Galaxian ie waves of aliens you shoot.
Was not a game you shot into the screen like Star Wars.
Control was a flight one like Star Wars not joystick .
Might have had the colours bands across screen like Space Invaders.

Have searched for Cockpit games and not found any that he thinks is this one.  (Looked at article on arcadeblogger and also tried to filter on klov but doesn't seem to show only games that had a cockpit release).  Not saying wasn't released in upright form, but he only remembers a cockpit.

Was not Radarscope.

Thanks for any help as has me baffled, assuming all info above correct which after 40 or so years can't guarantee!!

Cheers
Greg

Yeah I was going to suggest Space Tactics. There was one for sale near me a few years ago for cheap. A very complex machine though, I couldn't have fixed it in a million years.

They had one in the soon to be completely demolished Bright Spot arcade New Brighton near me. Here's a pic of it in the Bright Spot..

Kinda threw me where you stated that you don't 'shoot into the screen like star wars' because in space tactics that's exactly what you do....
You rang......?

Yeah sorry.  I did say might not be all correct!Tongue

Also I did query with him as with the control he described, did sound like it would shoot into the screen!  Anyway all good now as identified.  Think I remember playing it too now but is a long time ago and not one I played that much!
