Solar City

Gottlieb, 1977

Manufactured By: D. Gottlieb & Co.

Date: February 1977

Solar City is a two-player reimagining of Gottlieb’s classic one-player wedgehead El Dorado. Contrary to El Dorado’s old west theme, Solar City features a fantasy theme, complete with winged creatures, archers and castles. A few features are stripped away from the original El Dorado ruleset, and a few are added to complement the two-player operation. The game features fifteen drop targets, including a massive row of ten that runs across the top of the playfield. Gottlieb also released Target Alpha, the same design with new art and four player operation, the same year.
