Looks really cool! It looks like it's really big.

That's interesting, it looks like one of those games that just runs a plastic sheet with images on it behind the screen, and you have to steer your jet (or whatever) to stay on a certain path. The unique thing about this one is that you can apparently change out the plastics sheets for different tracks...

Yeah, I thought it kinda looked like a jet version of Tomy's Drive Yourself Crazy. What I don't get is why it takes 3 C batteries if it really is just that.

It probably uses a normal flash-light light bulb, and has a motor in it. Those things can draw a lot of power compared to an electronic game, especially if they expect a kid to play with it for hours...

Part of the reason the Adventure Vision runs on 4 D-size batteries- the motor that spins the mirror.

Yeah, I was just wondering why they bothered with the light. Why didn't they just make the track sheets opaque?

I wonder what the gameplay is like. There doesn't seem to be an actual, physical plane behind the screen.

I ended up buying this one, and it turns out to be more than it appears. According to the box, one of the game's goals is to get a "perfect landing." I haven't played with it yet, so I don't know what that means, but apparently this thing is an actual game (so it deserves a place in Museum, right? Laughing )
