Werbetext (englisch)
Space action. The ultimate frontier.
New Orbit is the ultimate space action adventure game. More research proven features offer more new challenges, encourage players to accumulate more game time. And offer operators unlimited profit potential. Orbit's new compact cabinet design also offers higher per square-foot earnings potential in both street and arcade type location.

More variety. More strategy. More action.
Easy to read, reliable push-buttons let players select 10 different game levels from "Beginner" to "Intermediate" to "Expert" to "Super Expert". Players also can select 8 different game feture variations that can be added or deleted while the game is in progress. "Fuel", "Shots Remaining", and "Time Remaining" are displayed on the screen to add to the excitement and suspense. More ways to score hits and points.

Exclusive "Space Station" Option.
Each commander can return his ship to his space station to refuel, re-arm or rebuild a partially destroyed spacecraft without loss of time. Games 0, 1, 2 have automatically selected space stations which may be removed at players' choice. Sounds and video displays warn pilots to return to base for more ammunition. Sound warning beep, and "Low" flashes when shots are low, "Out" flashes when ammunition is spent.

Exclusive "Game Reset" feature.
Activating "Game Reset" button lets player add or delete any pre-selected game type and choose another while the game is still in progress.

If no space stations are programmed, meteors will appear at random and may be destroyed at the cost of fuel and ammunition.

Add-A-Coin feature.
Players control the length of game time. Each additional coin adds extra time-play to the basic game time.

Exclusive Operator Profit-Options.
Game time is operator adjustable to 8 different coin modes, from 30 seconds per coin up to a total of 4 minutes per coin in 30 second increments.
