Notes (about the Max-A-Flex system): «When the timer gets down to 10 seconds of remaining time, the cabinet will emit progressively higher audio tones to signal that you need to insert more coins. If the timer gets to zero, the controls go dead but the game does not reset. You could insert another coin to continue or let your lives run out so another player could start fresh. It was an odd situation when compared to other arcade games. You could still have several lives left in reserve, but once time ran out, the game was over unless you inserted more money».

YES on ALL! :)

Great Score!

Since the play vid is from your channel that's ID enough for me.

I've never been ever to figure this game out. Of course it's isometric and I'm not good at those, but still I haven't a clue on how to play. I'm already familiar with the Exidy Max-A-Flex arcade system. I think this game is compatible with the Atari XE Game System, but I'm not totally sure.

Thanks! Yes, it had a modified Atari 600 XL inside and the home version of the game for the Atari 8-bit family is very similar to this one.

That's what I thought, although I still don't know how to play this game. For one thing isometric games confuse my brain. frown
