Platforms: Arcade (1982), Atari 2600 (1983)
Tired of ordinary space shooters that only let you control a single ship at a given time? Tac/Scan puts you in the pilots’ seats of up to seven spaceships at once, all flying in formation, all shooting in unison.
The original arcade game is vector-based, and has some very neat pseudo-3D 3rd-person perspective at times. As one would expect, the Atari 2600 port is less impressive, though you are still indeed plural.
