Um, did you see the java version of the game at that web site? If the
arcade version is anything like the coleco version as Rob says, then the
game play is very different. There is no shooting, you don't steer, and
I don't know about that. Honestly, I haven't played Looping in ages, but
you'd be surprised how much seemingly different games are alike when you
look beyond the superficial. For instance, Space Race and Activision's
you are acted upon by gravity.
The physics aren't really that accurate if you think about it. It's like
when you don't press the button, loop downward, else loop upward, with a
max angle in each direction. To go straight, tap the button and you get a
really small sin wave.
When played that way, it isn't that different from Looping (or similar genre).
Isn't Super Cobra just like Scramble, though (below the surface)?
As to movement and drawing of the screen,
I would more closely liken it to super cobra(Thanks to John Harvey's
suggestion), with your control similar to the control in Thrust, but only
in the vertical direction.
