Quoted from thedefog:
If I were going to ever buy two arcade games, these would be the two. Both are excellent. 720 is amazing, you can have games on it that last forever once you get good at it.
I want the world record but unfortunately it was done on the wacky code version. My goal is to get all golds on expert, have came very close already. Although I am a bit slower then I was young I can still whip it 1000 point landings pretty early on in the game.
How do I know about the wacky code issue my childhood arcade had this version and some of the manhole springs on the sidewalk would launch you way into the air allowing big points very early in game. This was later revised and my current has the new code.
Back on topic, sorry for thread jack I just thought since you were talking about odd controllers these two games were worth showing. My main concern with future of arcade game is monitors. Most are very old and they are stopping production on crts. Thankfully there are a ton out there so this may be many years down the road they sort of dry up. Cap kits will always be available it seems.
My next hunt a dedicated dragons lair (original cabinet) playing the multi laser emulator off a PC. I have little desire to use a laser disc at all.
