Welcome to the third in a series of sneak peeks into what will eventually become Ground Kontrol 3.0: bigger, better and featuring even more classic games! Throughout this series, we’ll be taking quick looks at various things like equipment, construction, design, and most importantly: games! But we won’t be pulling up the curtain completely – rather, we’ll just give you a brief glance. To see the rest, you’ll just have to wait!
This shooting game series saw its debut in the mid-90s. Players picked up a piece and shot their way through dozens of challenging levels that tested their speed, accuracy and, well… ability to distinguish colors! Though the education of the loftily-titled main characters could be questioned, their game was billed as a better choice for younger arcade players, since it lacked digital corpses (unless you count a piece of American engineering that was parked in the wrong place!)
