Using a combat simulation game on a Macintosh microcomputer, seven male subjects were tested under binocular, dominant eye and non-dominant eye viewing conditions. Total points scored and number of shots fired were recorded at the completion of each game. A subjective rating of game difficulty was also acquired at the end of each three game set. No significant differences in game performance were found for binocular, dominant eye and non-dominant eye viewing conditions for either total score or shot efficiency. However, subjective rating of game difficulty was significantly different with all subjects finding the monocular conditions more difficult than the binocular condition. The subjects' ratings of game difficulty did not correlate with their game scores or shot efficiencys.
