- TRIVIA -


Licensed to Venture Line for US manufacture and distribution.


Looping was developed in Parma, Italy.


Video Games GMBH (located in the town of Lich in Germany) started as an unauthorized bootleg manufacturer (i.e. : "Space Attack" (1978)) founded by Mr. Reinhard Stompe. When the European countries changed their laws to protect the original creators, they started to develop their own arcade games. However, only two original games from Video Games GMBH are known to exist : "Super Tank" (1981) and Looping (1982). Video Games GmbH was sold to Ican Data GmbH (Munich) in 1987 for US $10 million.


David Teehee holds the official record for this game with 1,469,970 points.


A Looping machine was shown at the 2003 classic arcade games show 'California Extreme' in San Jose, California.
