A.D. 2083 is a video game released in arcades in 1983 by Italian company Midcoin.

There is a pseudo-3D quality to some transitions, with ships flying out of–or into–the background.

GameplayEdit

 
The player fires at the diagonally moving red ship as three other ships approach from the background.

The player controls a Space Shuttle-like ship with an 8-way joystick and a fire button. Enemies continuously fly into the playfield, and the goal is to stay alive until a certain number of them have been destroyed. The side-view landscape is purely part of the background cannot be collided with or interacted with.
