It is the classic “wall” game in which the player controls a paddle with a knob and must hit a ball which, by bouncing, destroys the wall above, brick by brick. During the game the ball speeds up to increase the game difficulty.
This table is the Japanese cocktail version imported in Italy by Model Racing. The labels and all the internal electronics are original, with the addition of a step down transformer to be used at 220V and the modification of the coin mechanism to accept 100 Italian Lire. The conditions are excellent even if the monitor mounted on the side does not favor the playability. This particularity is due to the contained game board; in fact this was too big to allow the monitor to stay in the middle of the cabinet. Later, two-layer boards were built, reducing the overall dimensions and constructing cocktails with a centered monitor.
