BattleZone   Leave a comment

BattleZone cabinet
In BattleZone the player maneuvers a tank from a first person perspective through a battlefield, shooting other tanks, UFOs, and other enemies.  The game is controlled by two joysticks, each of which controls one of the tank’s treads, and a fire button on top of the right joystick.

BattleZone uses a vector monitor mounted low in the cabinet with the screen pointed upward.  The interior of the cabinet is designed to look like the inside of a futuristic tank, and the image from the monitor is reflected onto the rear wal of the cabinet.

BattleZone was designed by Ed Rotberg and produced by Atari in 1980.  A modified version was used by the U.S. military as a training simulator for the Bradley Fighting Vehicle.

Mad Scientist Monster Flesh and Living Ice Monster Kits   Leave a comment

The Monster Kits were molds to make a monster and either Living Ice or Monster Flesh to put into the mold.  The Monster Flesh was a lot like silly putty, and the Living Ice was a transparent rubbery substance.
