This guide is for the 1978 Midway arcade game. For the 1984 Mastertronic ZX Spectrum and MSX game, see Space Walk (1984).

Space Walk is an arcade game that was released by Midway Games in 1978; it utilizes an Intel 8080 microprocessor (running at: 1.9968 MHz), and both players must use two rotary controllers to direct a hovering platforms across the screen (on the left side of the screen, 1P's is higher than 2P's, and vice versa on that right side). At the start of the game a spaceman will walk into view from your side of the screen, and then jump down onto your platform - and, if there are not any other spacemen upon your platform when he lands, he will get into a rocket, then fly up to the top of the screen, but you will have three seconds to position it, before it launches (and you can use this to hit the topmost targets). Once he reaches the top of the screen, the spaceman will get back out of the rocket; if there is a spaceman on one side of your platform, your game will continue (in a manner like that of Midway's own Clowns), until the other player (or the CPU if only one person is playing) catches the jumping spaceman, which will trigger another rocket launch), or both players miss him (and he falls off the bottom of the screen).
