Jerry Belich developed A.F.T.E.R.G.L.O.W (Airborne Fleet Tracking and Enemy Radiation Geiger to Level Our World) as an excuse to use a rotary dial from a Bell 500 telephone, using classic games such as Tempest and Missile Command as inspiration for the high score competitive play. With a corresponding ring of LEDs, he uses the rotary as input to attack directionally, as well as create a radar scan effect that reveals hidden enemies. They fade away over time so you must continue scanning, which also updates the distance of enemy ships by changing their color from green to yellow, to orange, and finally red. A large red button allows you to release a huge explosion, destroying just about anything within the range of the radar.
