This game, along with Extra Bases were actually programmed in color, but I think the b/w monitor they used in production units was to save cost. These Midway CCRS (card cage) boardsets all put out component video (yes you can hook it to your TV via the component inputs if you make the right cabling), so if you only use the “y” line, you get b/w video along with sync info. So MAME shows them “correctly”……in color.

You traded it for a SI Deluxe to someone locally? Someone you still stay in touch with?

I just got one in the last two weeks, its pretty beat, but I love the game.

Yeah, I traded it with “Mudmantim” from KLOV. He lives up in the northern half of Michigan (not the UP). I think he sold it since then.

Good to hear from you! Hope the new career is going well.

If you still see these comments: I’ve been trying for a long time to hunt down the name of the game I played back in 1980-1982, at a local bowling alley, maybe 3 times in my life. After searching innumerable times for a clue online, I found your entry here for Space Zap, and it’s the one! Glad you had it in your shop and posted about it! Thank you for your work. I miss this era.

@Jason – Glad you were able to find it. I hate when I get a game stuck in my head and I can’t think of what it is! I appreciate the feedback too.
