- TRIVIA -


The game was originally called Mother-ship, and the mechanics were developed by Marvin Glass. However, the realistic-looking game did not test very well, it was supposed to use a mirror to reflect the image of a ship onto the play-field. In an attempt to save the project, Bill's new design of the game introduced the cute green alien called KAP'N KROOZ'R that Bally Midway executives hoped would be the next fad like "Pac-Man" was for Namco (note : KAP'N KROOZ'R next appearance was in "Wacko").
