Hm... I'm not too sure about Pressure Gauge 1 & 2. Did they have AIs?
One of 'em was even 4-player, or?
But, maybe pointing to a real possible VCS first: 
The Gunfight AI can be turned on/off _any_ time, even in the middle
of a game :-)

One of the problems is the VCS colors. When trying to do a shading
I didn't really find colors that matched nicely to the metal & wood
look I'm currently doing.

I tried doing a solid frame first for example, but all colors 
I tried didn't contrast well enough.

Another problen is that the color change would need a very exact timing,
there's only maybe two possible cycles on the on/off positions
where the color change could be done unnoticed.

I'll try & report, but don't expect too much here :-)
