Thinking of an arcade video game from the 1980s that involved shooting machine guns and missiles at approaching military vehicles - planes, tanks, that sort of thing. The only thing I clearly remember is that periodically during the game, there was a break where you could purchase new armaments from a place called “Crazy Ali’s Arms Bazaar,” while music based on the Arabian riff played in the background.
There’s a screen capture from the game just below that text. I had the name of Crazy Ali’s shop wrong, which is why it wasn’t coming up at first; I finally found it by searching for “Crazy Ali” and “arcade game”.
So it was indeed like Missile Command…sort of…in that you were trying to shoot down inbound aggressors. Maybe a bit more like BattleZone though, in that it was sort of 3D. Anyway, I just always remembered it because of Crazy Ali, which is something you wouldn’t see in a mainstream arcade video game these days.
