Game Details

First game to use a combination of laserdisc video backgrounds with computer generated overlaid targets, enemies, shots, etc.

M.A.C.H. III is actually two games: First, a fighter game where the video is shot from the nose of a plane flying through canyons and over various landscapes; second, a bombing game where the video is shot straight down from a plane flying over factories, plants, naval yards, and airports.

M.A.C.H. III uses the same main CPU & sound boards as Q*Bert, but adds a video mixer board and a Pioneer PR-8210 laserdisc player for the laserdisc video.

Mylstar came out with a conversion kit for M.A.C.H. III to make it an Us Vs Them. The kit is a new marquee, cabinent graphics, laserdisc & ROMS; it uses the same electronics, laserdisc player, and controls as M.A.C.H III

M.A.C.H III was available as both an upright and a sit-down/cockpit game.
