Nightmaretony: Capt. Sparkles: [www.primetimeamusements.com image 448x500]

One of the funnest arcade games I've ever played. If I ever get the cash and and a place to put it, I'd like to own one of these games.

/I also love me some Carnevil

If you are in southern california, one side job of mine is at an amusement park and has one. Modified with an LCD TV. Will ask the owner if he wants to sell it, work a price with you.


As awesome as that sounds, I live on the wrong side of the country and I can't afford anything like that right now anyway. Thanks for the offer though.

Any of you farkers heard of a game where you're some type of space ranger and you just are on a planets surface shooting aliens?I know it's kinda vague but it was from the early to mid 80s that it came out.

Why No One Played It: Aside from the fighting-game competition, Battle Circuit had a limited release. It skipped North America entirely.

Ya. That might be a reason why I never played it. I live in North America.

Parthenogenetic,Kryllith, TsarTom:

There's an even easier way to beat everybody on Mat Mania:

1: Obtain the advantage (with punches/kicks)
2. Perform two of the attacks (body slam or piledriver) in-ring.
3. Pick him up and throw him into the ropes
4. Let him run into you (don't attack, you both fall down)
5. You get up quicker -- GOTO 2.

The other guy will never get the reversal as long as you let him run into you off the third attack.

Not sure if this is a cheat or a bug, but have fun. And watch the clock!

LoneCoon: Does anyone remember an arcade game where you either played as or shot at smiley face. You ran around an apartment building shooting at your enemies, and you could use elvators and doors. The graphics were glossy 3D, and it would have been sometime in the mid nineties.

Maybe it's just a fever dream, but I distinctly remember playing that game once, then I could never find it again.


I know it. It's called "Somebody slipped you a roofie in an arcade and you played Berserk and Elevator Action before blacking out."

I clicked the link figuring that it'd CERTAINLY have Thayer's Quest, so I could go all hipster douchenozzle about how great it was.

But since it wasn't on the list, and hardly anybody's ever heard of it ... d'Oh! Mission accomplished!

Colour_out_of_Space: Jeez, had to wade through a gazillion pictures of Scarlett Johanssen to find that image.


I was gonna post the same thing. Yeah, hard to find, but holy crap that game was fun back in '84 or so. Grubsteaks!

Thayer's Quest was common. Hell, used to have one. Want to see something much rarer?

PacManDreaming: When we used to go to Chuck E. Cheese, back in the early '80s, I never had to wait to play this game.

And this is another of my favorite games that no one else has seems to have heard about.


I had Space Fury for ColecoVision©. It kinda lost something not being Vector graphics.

Wellon Dowd: Tempest was my game of choice.


Avoid spikes.

For the record, Cyberbots is epic. As is its predecessor.

degenerate-afro: I thought that I was the only person who played Battle Balls for a while in college until I actually saw someone else's name on the leader board. It appears that I had just set all of the high scores too high for anyone else to be on the top scores screen.


Or someone finally went "wtf's Battle Balls" and popped a quarter in.

I guess 2 of the less than 50 Ninja Baseball Batman cabinets made it to Winnipeg, because I played that game in two different arcades there. One of them was at the U of M Student union arcade and the other was either the arcade at Grant Park Plaza or at Magicland.

Magicland, the place where you could play all the new and obscure games for 2 hours for only $7. Sigh, I really miss that place.

Jesus the 33rd: I came looking for T-Mek and leave disappointed.

/[www.arcade-museum.com image 324x339]


A thousand times this!

I must have logged hours into that game, I would skip out on Church and go down the street to the arcade, and loved every farking minute of it. I wish I would buy it...

Weak article, the guy wants to show off his knowledge of obscure Japanese fighting games. Yawn.

Qix, circa 1980, was truly original. Addictive. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEq-mxFDuHM

And though probably not so obscure, but also never very popular, Major Havoc. Great concept and maps, but I think the difficulty ramp was all wrong - first few levels were easy, and then bam, it became incredibly hard all of a sudden, so players usually kept getting stuck at the exact same level forever.

Also had a weird mini-breakout game/easter egg built in while levels were loading, and the ability to enter some digits to skip a whole bunch of levels.

DjangoStonereaver: I thought I was the only one who remembered that one!


Nope ..Warrior was a REALLY fun game. Also, obscure in the wild ...only seen one of them.

like I said earlier, I have one for sale. (stand-up version).

MisterRonbo: Qix, circa 1980, was truly original. Addictive.


And another one that was simple concept/mind-bogglingly-difficult play. People who could get to the twin-Qix levels were considered masters -- and that was the third farking screen.
