* GeneralGamingGamepads: Specialized; the original arcade game used an analog controller shaped like bicycle handlebars that was like an odd mix of steering wheel and flight stick, except that tilting the handles adjusted speed instead of elevation.

* MinusWorld: There is a GoodBadBug in the version 1 [=ROM=] of the coin-op game. After playing the training/obstacle course, exiting at the exact right edge of the fence instead of across the finish line, starts an inverse video rerun of the training course, with insane poi9nt values. While a typical high score for the entire game might be 600,000, a few plays on the inverse training course alone can rack up over a billion points.
