    TRIVIA
    Gee Bee was released in October 1978. It was the very first video game released by Namco.

    About Namco: Founded in 1955 in Tokyo, Namco means 'Nakamura Manufacturing Co.'. Before video games, Namco was originally a 'rocking-horse rides' manufacturer.

    Joining Namco, Toru wanted to design pinball games. Gee Bee, "Cutie Q" and "Bomb Bee" were his arcade game hybrids. Toru would achieve later, greater fame by designing "Pac-Man".

    SCORING
    Pop Bumpers: 10 or 100 points.
    Spinner: 10 or 100 points.
    1st row of drops: 20 points.
    2nd row of drops: 50 points.
    3rd row of drops: 100 points.
    NAMCO lights: 50 points.

    Adjustments to scoring:
    Finishing the side drop target banks puts in a barrier to the side drain and increases the pop bumper points on the side cleared.
    Finishing the top drop targets increases the spinner award.
    Lighting all NAMCO lights increases bonus multiplier to 2X.
