The only ones I can think of that does it in 8 directions are Time Pilot,
which I bet does it more or less the same way I'm doing it in the next
version of this playfield thing (but I haven't looked at its code) and
Mountain King, my favorite 2600 game, which doesn't do it especially
smoothly but it is asymmetrical.  Vanguard does both horizontal and
vertical of course, but I don't think it does both at the same time
(diagonal) on the 2600.
