Red Baron
Sure the game has nothing to do with food, but there is Red Baron pizza. Anyway, this is one of those games that is vector based, much like Tempest and Battlezone. You can actually see some relations between this and Battlezone. They are very similar in design.

The main objective is to fly your W.W.I plane and dogfight with other planes. You are in the cockpit of the plane and you see the other planes as they fly in at you. You have to shoot your machine guns and try to destroy them, before they destroy you. You can move in all four directions and you will need to. Once one of them gets behind you, things can end in a hurry. One of the neat little features is when a plane flies behind you and shoots you up and you see the bullet holes in the glass in front of you. Very neat!

Besides planes, there are also targets on the ground that shoot at you and the zeppelins. You see these flying in the distance and it adds to the game. There are also mountains and building as you zoom along.

The controls are very easy to understand and you will become immersed in the game in a hurry. This is a very exciting and challenging game and the vector graphics work very well. It was one of the classic games that had a following, but was never as popular as many of its brethren.

This is just a review of the arcade machine.  If you are looking for the actual arcade machine, you may want to check out ebay.  Click below to see if you can find this game.
