To be honest I'm not too pumped about the theme. I would actually have to play this one.

 

But to be fair, I haven't been too pumped over the themes from the last couple of years. Even the Star Wars pin which I have played about 20 times and I'm not really liking it.

 

There was a rumor of an Iron Maiden pin - that I would be pumped for.

#3876255 Why is the importance of ColecoVision almost never brought up historically?

Yes, it's library was uninteresting

 

puh-leeze

 

It's library was well diversified from arcade hits, to not as well known arcade titles, to originals.

#3871596 In defense of Pac-Man...

Posted by VectorGamer on Thu Oct 19, 2017 12:18 PM

Not only does it bare less resemblance to its arcade forebearer than Pac-man, it also plays considerably worse.

It looks like crap but it sure is fun to play. Not as fun as the 5200 version though.

You always find the best stuff. I found their page. I love the 2pm-10pm hours. Pittsburgh is calling me.

I don't know how far you are from Pittsburgh, but you could consider bundling a visit with ReplayFX which is what I did a few years ago. I went to Pinball PA on a Thursday then spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday at ReplayFX. Just give yourself a lot of time at Pinball PA cuz they have over 300 machines - some of the arcade games you won't find anywhere else. I pooped my pants when I saw a Tazz-Mania there.

 

Pinball PA is located in a strip mall. There's a pizza shop but if memory serves it's either take out only or they have little seating available. There's also a restaurant that has good food like seafood and steak but it's on the pricey side.

Sky Raider looks as if it's projected on a rotating cylinder. Without anything shooting back at you, it's not very challenging. I wonder what the reception was like back in 1978. I only first saw it on Mame.

 

I appreciate it for what it is. It's no different than any other timed target shooting game where you try to get the highest score possible. MAME doesn't offer the same experience as playing the cabinet.

Pinball PA has a Sky Raider. What you're missing by playing it in MAME is the color overlay and the cool monitor bezel found in the arcade game.

Get a PC and load it with DOS and Win 3.1. At least they'll acquire skill working with the command line.

May I suggest a Taito one? Their trademark symbol from the early '80s.

 

Taito has already been done

I feel a little silly linking my game in a thread that is for John's version, but it can be found in my store here:

Thanks - I'm going to order this!

 

 

Is there a video of your game in action? 

 

I found this. Unfortunately the guy is blabbing throughout over top the game sound effects
