with arrow on keyboard for control we can see this :
1- a bit of inertia even after we stop pressing key
2- double arrow click makes the move 2x speed with associated 2x inertia

for sure you cannot have a circular tunnel. Never the less you could have some poligon rotating. In any case speed and frame rate would be critical for gameplay.

Tunnels don't need to be circular:
Set scroll + color animation can stir up your creativity :P

i was thinking in drawing almost circles in screen 2 or 4 or 1 with predifined chars,
Lets consider a 3x3 matrix of chars we could limit the possibilities of vicinity to the following

XHX XXH XXH XXH XXX and so on ...

X is background
H is the circle going through the little matrix.

the goal is to select the center char to be put depending on the neighbor'ones.
in the first case we want to draw a vertical line accros the matrix then the middle char
will be vertical bar ; in the second case the char will curved in the bottom to the right;
and so on ...

so we discard the following case, for instance:

Here there is your Missile Game 3d already code in z80 ASM (for TI calulators) - Look also at GIF in the file!

Yes! it can be done!
It is a matter of scaling resolutions (maybe passing to tile based modes) but it can work.
Who wants to port it?

Here is the youtube video of it:

Does not look as good as the Flash based version and a lot of cut down... Now as smooth, low res and no rotating obstacles.

I guess something like this could be done in Screen 3 or tile mode... Not sure what a wireframe a la Elite might look like ?

This Amiga game was probably the inspiration for Iridion 3D (Game Boy Advance):
