Pac & Pal is also available on one of the Jakks Plug & Play NAMCO joysticks, it has 12 games, an excellent twisty stick for Pole Position, & Xevious is an unplayable mess.
IIRR it's the one BEFORE the one that looks like a Pac-Man.
Yeah, I hate fart jokes too. That type of humor is just below the belt.

I played Robocop at the local corner store when it was current, and I remember thinking even then that the game just didn't do much for me, but I dropped my allowance into it anyway. In retrospect, I can see that, in the late 80s, so long as new arcade games had flashy graphics and sounds, we'd be drawn to them like mosquitos to a bug zapper no matter how bad they were.
A few years ago, some other podcast was talking about Robocop (No Quarter maybe?), which prompted me to play through the game from start to finish on my MAME cabinet just to see what 25+ years of aging has done to the game. Unsurprisingly, the game has aged about as gracefully as Keith Richards; I think it's absolutely dreadful. It feels kind of like an even worse incarnation of Bad Dudes, insofar as such an atrocity is even possible to realize.
I really dig Smash TV, though. I'd like it even more if the "fast movement" power up were active all the time, but in my estimation, Smash TV is somewhat of a diamond-in-the-rough title for an era of arcades when gameplay tended to fall by the wayside in favor of audiovisual bombast.
