Space - Spacewar clone
First coin-op video game ever - only 1500 produced - clone of PDP-111 computer game "Spacewar" created in 1962. Monitor was a converted tube-type TV set. Buttons consisted of left and right turn, thrust, and fire (similar to Atari Asteroids). Ship would continue to move until you turned it and used thrust to modify direction. Single player version was a battle between the player and a random-moving UFO. You couldn't collide with the UFO.

There were a few 2-player models made. The cabinet was molded fiberglass with a metal-flake finish.
