This game uses 2 CRTs and a half-mirror. One CRT displays ground objects and the other displays air objects. They are merged via the half-mirror.
The Hologram effect is done via this system without 3-D glass. It is easy implemented through existing parts but an object reflected on the half-mirror is semi-transparent and the color is mixed (for example, 'red' object flying over the 'blue' sea has 'purple' color).

Players : 1
Control : 8-way joystick
Buttons : 3
