is an arcade game released in 1983
, and the first such game to provide a three-dimensional image to the player, using a display that delivers individual images to each eye. This is to be distinguished from the visuals used in games like Battlezone
or Virtua Fighter
, which use algorithms to display appropriately scaled and rotated graphics to provide the illusion of three dimensions in a two-dimesional display. The graphics in SubRoc
are two-dimensional, handdrawn sprites displayed in a three-dimensional tableau.
