I remember playing a game about 1975. It was a standup unit, with a joystick on the left and a thrust control on the right. Inside was a sloping floor of wire mesh, a ping pong ball, and some gates. Under the mesh was a circle with an air pipe in the middle. The object was to pick up the ball with the air stream that came out of the pipe and "float" the ball through the gates. The joystick moved the ball front to back and side to side. The thrust controlled how high the ball floated. When the game was running, it sounded like there was a vacuum cleaner inside.
Sort of like this game here.
The gates were painted fluorescent, lit with a black light.
Anyone remember this? What was it called?
