Gotcha

arcade game

Published in 1973, Gotcha was the fourth arcade game released by Atari, Inc., following Pong, Space Race and Pong Doubles. It is also the first example of the maze genre. Two players attempt to solve a computer maze and "catch" one another. Gotcha is best known for creating the first video game controversy. After some members of Atari joked that joysticks resemble a male phallus, designers outfitted Gotcha with two pink rubber bulges resembling female breasts, which were squeezed by players to control movement. In response to the ensuing controversy, Atari replaced the pink rubber controls with standard joysticks in later versions of the game.
