    Cosmic Guerilla © 1979 Universal.

    For some reason you have 2 of your ships placed in the middle of the playing field and aliens all around them. Luckily, they're protected by 5 rows of barriers and you're on the bottom, doing your job to protect them.

    TECHNICAL
    This game had great cabinet artwork, a white base, with purple, yellow and black overlaid artwork. It shows a horned demon and lots of swirls. Most interestingly, this has to be the only game to have a politically incorrect slogan plastered on the side -- SUPER VIOLENCE!. The artwork on the sides (and front) was varnished or lacquered, which gives it a shiny and incredibly strong coat, protecting it from scratches and any kind of fading! The control panel had backlit 1- and 2-player info panels. Insert one coin, '1 player' lit up; insert two and '2 player' lit up. This looks real nice on the brushed chrome control panel.

    TRIVIA
    Released in November 1979.

    According to Replay Magazine, Cosmic Guerilla brings that unique world of Japanese cartoonists onto a TV game via a deal with the famous cartoonist Shotaro Ishimori. Ishimori was a pioneering manga/anime artist. It is not know if his art was used in the game itself, on the cabinet, or both.
