Mame is wrong. ;-)

Taito's Missile X has a hudge discrete logic PCB game.
This PCB has *NO* CPU, *NO* RAM...
Everything is done with 74xxx logic chips, transistors, ...
Sound is external, on 6 small PCBs.
Check my next e-mail for pictures.

Midway's Guided Missile has a L-shaped PCB (like Space Invaders)
with 8080 CPU, RAM and sound.

Games are closed, but little different :

Missile X: 1 player only ; targets crossing the screen are always
small tank / big tank / jeep with machine gun

Guided Missile: 2 players ; targets crossing the screen are various:
helicopter, plane(s), different boats, truck, tank.
