Not sure if this one ever made it to any kind of home console, but I do remember pumping endless quarters into it at the local laundromat as a kid. For the life of me, I can't remember the name...
- This particular game had 2 (count em) joysticks, instead of a joystick and buttons. One joystick determined the direction your dude ran, the other determined the direction he fired his weapon in.
- The premise of the game was that you were a contestant in some futuristic game show where you ran around different rooms facing different obstacles (enemies) in a fight to stay alive and win cash (and prizes?).
- The aspect was that you were looking directly down at (i.e. from overhead) the given room your little dude was in at the time.
That's about all I got. Oh, except for that this had to be sometime in the 1985-1992 range, I'm guessing.
Super bonus points if you can find somewhere online that I can play it...
