A very complex and sophisticated arcade construction kit. You can only create a Space Invaders or Galaxian clone, but you have a great amount of freedom in designing sprite and background graphics, play mechanics and so on. It's not on the level of, say, the Dezaemon series, but for 1982 8-bit home computer, it's very impressive. Probably will only appeal to diehard collectors and classic gamers today, however.

A neat idea that -- I think -- went back to the ZX Spectrum, and suffered the same limitations: shoot-em-ups only, all of which tended to look pretty much the same. You could stretch the boundaries but it was rarely actually worth it.
