Lunar Lander is an arcade game released by Atari, Inc. in 1979, which uses a vector monitor to display vector graphics. Although not particularly successful, the vector-graphics generator of the arcade game was also the impetus for Atari’s most successful coin-operated game: Asteroids. Approximately 4,830 units were produced. [Wiki]

Classic Ads: Rally-X
Rally-X is a maze driving arcade game that was released by Namco in 1980. It runs on Namco Pac-Man hardware, and was the first Namco game to feature “Special Flags”, which would become a recurring object in later games. It was also the first game to ever feature a “bonus round.”
The object is to “capture” all of the flags scattered in the field before the other racers hit you. It also features an early example of a radar, to show the car’s location on the map. [Wiki]
