Captain Seahawk was basically a straight port of a 2600 game... One of the corporate guys decided instead of letting the programmers come up with game ideas, he'd tell them what to make. He said he wanted a version of game 7 from Air Sea Battle since it was a popular part of the 2600 game. Mike told him that it's fun to play at home but wouldn't work in the arcade. Mike had to make the arcade game anyway. So, he did a straight port, and as he expected nobody was interested in playing it in the arcade. It tested very poorly. Management decided to let the programmers design the games after that...
