About The Game
Looping is an arcade video game.
As the player begins his flight into Adventure-Land, his airplane is quickly surrounded by hot air balloons. WATCH OUT! These seemingly innocent colourful objects mean destruction.
Immediately the Player's flying skills are tested. The hot air balloons challenge and engage the Player in a fierce dogfight. The Player must loop his plane to avoid and destroy the swirling balloons.
As the Player continues his journey into Adventure-Land he encounters the Maze Tunnel. Now the Player must guide and loop his airplane through the labyrinth with precision movements.

Released in April 1982.
Licensed to Venture Line for US manufacture and distribution.
Looping was developed in Parma, Italy.
Video Games GMBH (located in the town of Lich in Germany) started as an unauthorized bootleg manufacturer (i.e. : "Space Attack" (1978)) founded by Mr. Reinhard Stompe. When the European countries changed their laws to protect the original creators, they started to develop their own arcade games. However, only two original games from Video Games GMBH are known to exist : "Super Tank" (1981) and Looping (1982). Video Games GmbH was sold to Ican Data GmbH (Munich) in 1987 for US $10 million.
David Teehee holds the official record for this game with 1,469,970 points.
A Looping machine was shown at the 2003 classic arcade games show 'California Extreme' in San Jose, California.
