Remote Controlled Wall Games

Gigantic light-bulb games from the 1970s played with one-button remote controls. Hung or stood on plinths in restaurants and bars around the USA in the 1970s. Then largely forgotten.

Of note, the bowling wall game Bally Alley from 1973, is thought to be the first arcade game to feature a micro-processor.
