hi Spriggy, Thank you for your response. If you look closely it's pangasian's cartridge I've bought.

 

Anyways, looks like I'm the first one providing a dump.

 

Thanks,

 

Andre

 

Yup.  Just posted the link to highlight that for posterity.  :thumbsup: 

Welcome to AA.

#4191835 Most underrated arcade games

Posted by Spriggy on Sun Jan 6, 2019 11:26 AM

Pandora's Palace - With Konami behind it, circa 1984, cannot believe this title has not seen a port under any system; especially at least the Famicom/NES, BITD; it's highly underappreciated.  A friend's reaction called it a reverse flowing Donkey Kong.  Never saw it that way before, but would explain why I like it so much (DK being my all-time favorite Golden Age Arcade game).  It also may explain why it never saw the light of day on the aforementioned systems.  Still, there is enough variety, great gameplay, and huge fun factor in its own right:

 

Yup.  +1

 

Others:

Mr. Heli No Dai-Bouken / Battle Chopper (1987) - Gr8 game I stumbled on bitd at a Bowling Alley near a mates place.  Cabinet was labelled Battle Chopper.

Wardner (1987) - Another gr8 little platformer.  Also found at the same Bowling Alley.  Cabinet was labelled Wardner's Forest I think.

Bull Fight (1984) - Found this bitd in an arcade in the City.  Was really popular from memory.  Simple and all about the timing.  Loved the bull fighting game mechanics.

 

I had never seen any more of these cabinets, in any other locations, in any of the arcades I frequented in the 80's.  I remember being really surprised.  Obviously my opinion though. :thumbsup:




#4191819 Can you remember your 1st favorite arcade game?

Posted by Spriggy on Sun Jan 6, 2019 11:02 AM

My earliest memory is playing Speed Race, in the very late 70's, at Perth Airport (Western Australia).  The grandmother lived right near the airport.  Grandmother being from Poland, relatives used to visit from overseas quite often.  I was more interested in going to the airport to play the machine instead of waiting for the relies to arrive/depart.  :) .

Flojo and Franko asking questions and finding answers that the writers actually being paid aren't asking and finding.   :thumbsup:

 

The Peter Parker and Clark Kent of AA .... however noticeably older and market-ably less nimble.

Ataribox is what the Hamburglar is- only he stole 3 million and got away with it.

if the Atari VCS platform sells for more than 1 million copies, we can't say that it is a bad product.  that's it
