Well, in a dream world, my choice would be Professor Pac-Man. I never heard of it until I read about it in a Pac-Man collectibles book. I'd just like to play it and see what it was like. Since there's only as many as 100 around, and probably not even that many, I don't like my chances of ever seeing one in person.

My friend Crazy Carl, Just sold his Professor Pac-Man cabinet.....it was gutted and turned into a Neo Geo cabinet, but under all the paint and even burned into the screen...Professor Pac-Man was very mush so still alive!

Cool! Have they ever had one on display at the classic gaming conventions? If there was one available to play, I would go to the convention just for that.


One of the members of SC3 (Southern California Classic Collectors) has had an original Professor Pac-Man cabinet with MAME guts at some of their gatherings in Claremont. The play is very repetitive -- I don't know if there was a problem with random-number generation in the original, or in the MAME emulation, but after playing it for more than 10-20 minutes, very few new questions/puzzles come up. Unfortunately you and I both just missed their most recent gathering last weekend. They usually seem to have two or three per year. See also this post.

I would have to go with Galaxy Force, since Environmental Discs Of Tron has already been mentioned. :)
The whole machine was like a ride in itself.

Thanks :)

Now I have to get it cleaned up before bringing it inside, I don't think I'm going to do a full resto on this as it's really in decent shape, hate to replace original artwork unless it's badly trashed.

That would be awesome! I would definitely consider going if that game was available to play! I go to CA once a year usually as I'm originally from there (the northern part, though), but spend a little time in the southern part on my way to visit my folks. I'll be there in about a month for one of my visits. I'd consider making a special trip if they ever meet again with that game.

If I could only have one, I would choose Berzerk in an instant. If I could have more, it would be Time Pilot next, then Frenzy. After those, I would have a hard time choosing between Bubble Bobble, Frogger, and Gyruss.

One huh? It would have to be Sinistar, and it would be the Sitdown version. Sinistar is one of my favorite games of all time! I really love that voice.
"I AM Sinistar!"


Note:I would have said Polybius, (of course) but No one knows if it really exists.
