  • 70's game

    I don't know if anyone can help me, I'm trying to remember the name of a game. You had to drop bombs onto targets on a moving map. You looked down through a bomb aimers sight and it became easier as you could memorise the map the more times you played it. I think the map was circular and may have been on a timer, possibly clockwork?

      That looks cool! Wish I'd had that when I was a kid (or now!) Never heard of it before in my life.

          Thanks Sixtyten, that's the game. Apparently there was a version you could play in the dark, with a little spotlight under the plane to illuminate the targets.
