Tempest? Unique controls? How about Track and Field? I love my Track & Field. I thought it would be a maintenance nightmare with the button mashing but the thing has held up really well (so far)

I like the new guesses, especially Warlords and Robotron, both of which I recall Dave being a huge fan of. With arcade machines, they are such space hogs that I feel like priority #1 when buying one is ensuring that you'll love it and get a ton of use out of it. So the latest guesses would fit that bill. I'd like to steal the Robotron guess.. but to add something unique to the mix, I'll go with Breakout or Arkanoid as my new guesses.

Seconding this guess, based on the response to Asteroids.

TRON? I had a friend as a kid who had a TRON machine -- great fun.

I know it's got no chance, but as an off the wall guess, I'm gonna throw Paperboy out there too (with its unique handle bar controller). It was the very first machine that popped in my head when I read this topic, but I immediately scoffed at the thought as being too unlikely. Now, with Dave suddenly reviewing Paperboy today, I have to at least throw it out there or I won't be able to live with myself...

More good guesses! I recently saw a Tron machine a local arcade dealer, but I was never a big fan of the movie.

Here are some more hints. This was a major arcade hit. A space game.
