Room 7

Drop Zone 4 1970s videogame coin-op cabinet, with black and white monitor with three rows of sparsely positioned horizontal rectangles. Above bands of grey sky, to the left a score and bombs dropped indicator. At the top a blocky plane.   The cabinet has a small button marked

Dropzone 4 and Bombs Away!

The first commercial one-button videogames. And the first with an anti-war element.



Drop Zone IV control panel with button for START and bigger button for Bomb Release.
Meadow's Drop Zone 4 and Bombs Away were created by David Main in 1975 and 1976 respectively. Atari would seemingly borrow heavily from these games with their VCS release title Air-Sea Battle.
