Its tate, so I assume arcade. Going by the colour scheme etc, somewhere in that late 70s early 80s border. Coul be as late as 84 by resolution.

I'm sure this one won't last long, mine never do, but it's a game I have fond memories of, so what the hell :)

The name was in the screenshot but I blurred it out ;)

Deflektor was the name that sprang to mind, but its obviously not that one. I know I've played this and its similar.
