This pseudo-3D fixed shooter was designed by Shigeru Miyamoto and released by Nintendo.

Radar Scope is notable for its pseudo-3D perspective, and in particular, the perspective animation on the enemy ships. It's easily one of the coolest looking games of '79. The game also features simultaneous music and sound effects.
