Crazy Balls

We're able to find only this part of this game, a glass signed "Mike '78" who reports Nat as manufacturer; however, rumors say this game was built and marketed by Bontempi of Rome also.
This was a ball and paddle game with obstacles. Its monitor was monochromatic.
Now the important part. This game introduced the writing of the top-scorer name on the screen! A little keyboard placed in the cabinet allowed this. And this game came out before Atari Asteroids, who many sources identify as the first coin-op to own this feature.

Attack Force


This game runs on a standard hardware, very similar to Space Invader's one.

Thanks to Piero Andreini, who found an unit, got it fixed and dumped the ROMs. The game is emulated in MAME starting from version 149. Sound is missing at the moment.
