    I have a clip on controller. Works really well. I love my turbo twist spinner for driving games.

            That clip on control panel is amazing. It's even got a steering wheel! Great stuff ...

              It often happens like that. A game you have, somewhere, sometime, where you keep trying your best, and then you play really well. Almost double your previous PB.

                  Both Galaxian and Cosmic Alien I think were released in 1979. I am not sure how two similar games came out so close to each other. But we'll soon see which one is more tougher, judging by what is not written, or that which is not spoken, or the scores. The last or will do it, for sure ...

                  Also your 3 comparisons above are excellent. I am guessing there was a spy each at Universal, Taito and Namco, that met each week, looked at each other, drank a saki, and said why not. Let's make this fun and have no secrets, it's free for all. So now we are all here in 2020, playing all these crazy games.
                  Well I was doing some digging around, and not with Dug, and unbeknownst to me, I found this very interesting article on Cosmic Alien. Midway took Universal to court in 1980 because of Cosmic Alien ...

                          Even when this title was in court, you could still play this game.



                          But for how long?

                          Only 6 days to go until this game is closed.
